Why did Stephan Pastis have to use my name in today’s Pearls Before Swine comic strip? And then make fun of my books’ sales? Okay, I admit they pale before the sales of his books, but … sheesh! Click to see the punchline. And the punchline makes it even worse.  Pastis, you #@&#, you knew I used […]

I, Effing Feline, post this weekly column on behalf of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. My cousin Lee, who lives in a zoo, read about the weight gain I mentioned in last week’s post, and sent me a picture of him to inspire me. Thanks, Lee! I feel thinner just looking at you. Today’s snippet […]

I, Effing Feline, post this weekly column on behalf of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. Mr V has been away at the RWA writers conference, but that’s all right with me.

I, Effing Feline, post this weekly column on behalf of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. You may think that cat bloggers are unusual, and you’re right. I’m an unusual cat. Today’s snippet is from the short story, Thimbleriggers, contained in Future Love, Mr V’s brand new release. It picks up shortly after last week’s snippet … which you may not […]

Just such a meeting happened this week, as the king of the gods met the woman made specially for him.  The Juno spacecraft has reached planet Jupiter. Talk about a match made in heaven. Here’s their meet-cute, and […]

I, Effing Feline have new glasses. In this month of national celebrations, I’m taking no chances of upsetting anyone in the far-flung, utterly confused family of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. Today’s snippet is from the short story, Thimbleriggers, contained in Future Love, Mr V’s brand new release. To pay for an expensive operation for her long-time husband, ninety-year-old […]
