I, Effing Feline, have many things that bother me, and I’m sure you want to know what they are. Here’s a partial list of my pet peeves: Dogs Loud noises Fur balls Dry cat food Dogs Fur that doesn’t taste good Politics on television People who pet cats as thought we’re dogs Dogs Today, another snippet […]

Today we have another hook from my WIP, The Seven Foot Cupid. Last week we saw that Ember Dayle is examining a newly drilled hole that provides unauthorized access to an important cave. She’s preparing her high-tech rappel vest to lower her safely to the cave floor — but she’s not quite ready to go. […]

I, Effing Feline, complained last week about the cold, and I meant every word. But after getting a picture from my Canadian cousin Sadie, I may have to change my mind. Sadie is a dog (yuck). Nonetheless, I kind of envy her. I’ll show you why after this message from my sponsor, Ed’s WIP, Pandora […]

Now that the holidays are over, so are the hooks from Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker. Instead, I’m returning to a book that’ll be released in early 2021 — The Seven Foot Cupid. It’s close to going up for pre-release sales. Waaay back in November, I’d gotten to the point in this book where […]

I, Effing Feline, am freezing my tail fur off. It’s winter here, and it’s a week late. Usually our one week of winter here in Arizona comes between Christmas and New Year’s Day — but here it is, January 3, and the tips of my fur still needs a blanket. It must be fifty degrees […]

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly has been hired by the aliens’ king to conduct a performance of The Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. Rafe, the sexy lead dancer, insists on performing a different number on that day. It’s a classic case of: an irresistible force (Holly’s need to satisfy the king and perform […]

I, Effing Feline, find it tedious to explain things that every cat just knows. You humans get Christmas all wrong. For example, the day after Christmas. In much of the world, it’s called Boxing Day. In case you don’t know it, that’s a Feline holiday — the day we get to play with all the […]

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly has been hired by the aliens’ king to conduct a performance of The Nutcracker on Christmas Even. Rafe, the sexy lead dancer has other ideas, which she learns when she watches the dancers rehearse. The troupe dispersed. Rafe walked toward her, shaking his head. “Well, what do […]

I, Effing Feline, find it tedious to explain things that every cat just knows. For example, opening presents. In Mr. H.’s house, Christmas wrappings come off with at least a modicum of decorum.  No one care about the paper so much — let ‘er rip! — but if there’s a nice bow or decoration, it […]

Recently I watched part of a Hallmark movie featuring a ballerina dancing The Nutcracker — and I choked up and darn near cried. Especially when she danced to a couple of the oboe solos. You see, for the last eight or nine years, I’ve been down in the orchestra pit, playing oboe for a local […]
