Colby the Courageous Cat – My 13th Publication – 2016!

I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on

I wrote this book and dedicated it to the memory of my daughter’s cat, Colby, who we had for nine years. He was a wild one that loved hunting and staying out all night, coming home only to say ‘hi’, grab a quick bite, get a scratch or pet and leave us a gift of a mouse or other efforts of his hunting prowess. Yuck! In this story I made him a kinder and more loving cat. He was loved and is missed. This book keeps his memory alive for us.

Colby will teach children to love and care for their siblings as he does and that family is important.

Blurb:

Colby is one of a litter of four kittens. The kittens get into all kinds of trouble. Being the biggest and strongest, Colby’s mother expects him to watch over the smaller kittens and keep them safe. Read and find out what Colby does to meet his mother’s expectations.

I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!

Please consider giving books to all the children on your list for all occasions. There is nothing better than to see a child’s eyes light up when you give him/her a book. Even more so when you read the book to them. You are giving them so much more than you could ever imagine, e.g., you spark their imagination, lift their spirits, increase their vocabulary, open up a whole new world to them, and encourage them to love reading. The gift of a book is worth more than gold to our children, grandchildren. Keep reading and gifting books to children. Let’s bring up a generation of readers and thinkers. Thank you for your support!

These Children’s books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
