The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey – Book Reviews, Press Releases, and News

Celebrate National Reading Month with a Special Offer to Read The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey!

 

Me, a book, and my cats. My everyday happy place…

Each year at the beginning of March, school children kick off National Reading Month by celebrating the birthday of the wonderful Dr. Seuss, who was born on March 2, 1904. Teachers develop contests, family literacy events, and more, and with the help from Read Across America, they hope to motivate kids to read every day of the year. For me, it’s a subject dear to my heart in so many ways. I was painfully shy through nearly most of my school going years, and I was also persistently bullied which triggered me to withdraw into a shell even more. Books were my comfort, my solace, my safe island, and my friends. Without them, I don’t know how I would have gotten through the day. Read more

Cat Writers’ Association 24th Conference, a New Presidential Beginning, and Purrs for My Eye Surgery

Sure…my luggage might have a few love scratches and frays from my cats, but as long as the contents are less than 50 pounds, I don’t care!

Hey everyone! I had wanted to do a recap of my experience attending the 24th annual Cat Writers’ Conference and Awards Banquet last June 7 – 9 in Houston, TX. From start to finish it was a perfect alignment of the sun, moon, and stars. I remembered to pack my razor and phone charger. I had pre-TSA check-in at the airport. My luggage was less than 50 pounds and my hair was uncharacteristically cooperative during my stay. Read more

Zee & Zoey’s Custom Cat Ears and More for POP Cats Miami on October 28!

I’m a crafty person by nature, so it was bound to happen one of these days… Yup, I’ve designed my own line of custom-created cat ears, so that you too, can unleash your inner feline!

It’s no secret I’m known as the “leopard lady.” It’s also no secret that I love to wear cat ears, to the point if I didn’t wear them (along with my leopard garb) at cat-related events, I’m not sure if people would know who I was! I decided to take my cat ear loving passion to task and have been a busy little kitty creating custom cat ears of my own to sell at POP Cats Miami, a venue I will be attending this October 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. From black cats, white cats, spotted, striped, and everything in between, there’s sure to be a style to tickle your feline fancy!

If you’re in the South Florida area I really hope you’ll think about attending. It’s a cat lovers dream come true under one convenient roof where you’ll be able to shop and find unique, fun, and creative merchandise for cats and humans from your favorite brands from the pop-culture world.

Unfortunately Zee and Zoey won’t be joining me at POP Cats, but there will be lots of great cats up for adoption at the event!

Need gifts for birthday’s, Christmas, and the like? Want something for yourself? This is the place to be! There will also be a cat-riffic lounge that will feature adoptable cats you can interact with and a portion of ticket proceeds will benefit one of my favorite 501c organizations, The Cat Network, Inc.

I’ll be there, unveiling my handmade cat ears, along with a new t-shirt I designed (with coffee mugs and magnets to match) as well as with all of my books at a special discounted event rate (The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey – A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary; Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond; and Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them) for those who would like autographs.

Please excuse the dreadful picture – it was raining outside and I didn’t want to get the camera wet! This is my newest creation – the “Cat Lover from MEOW to eternity” T-shirt!

Author of 3 books and contributing author to another…I would have never dreamed it possible years ago when I started blogging in 2010!

And even better, I’ll be donating $5.00 from each sale of the book, Rescued Volume 2: The Healing Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes, to Riverfront Cats, a Miami rescue organization that promotes cat rescue, focusing on black cats which are often overlooked for adoptions. Our rescue Jazmine is one of the featured stories in the book and I’m so honored to be able to help Riverfront Cats out.

Jazmine is doing a double-take at the cover of Rescued, Volume 2 because yes, she’s one of the kitties on the cover!

Speaking of Riverfront Cats, Christine Michaels, founder of the organization and my dear friend will also be with me at POP Cats. That alone is reason enough to attend! And she’ll be bringing two of her black cat fosters who are up for adoption – Rocky and Ray Ray! We’ll also be featuring several raffles to raise funds for her 501c organization, Pawsitivley Humane, and, of course, we’ll be educating the public on all sorts of cat topics like spay/neuter, TNR, and more.

This is Rocky and Ray Ray. Ray Ray is sporting the cool shades and is a special needs cat, as he is blind. Christine promises they’ll both steal your heart and we hope to find them loving furever homes at POP Cats! Photo courtesy of Riverfront Cats.
