Effing Feline gets serious #Wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, would like to be serious for once, so no laughing or sniggering. Today, November 11, is the anniversary of the end of World War One. That war had a huge impact on the family of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert. A hundred years ago, the family lived outside of Roeselaere, near Ypres and […]

Effing Feline Meows his Mind

I, Effing Feline, have a free rein with this week’s post! Mr Valentine (i.e. my pet human, Ed) won’t be looking over my shoulder. He’s spending much of the weekend at the local Comic Con, speaking on panels and selling books — although maybe I should make that ‘book,’ singular. Snort. Yay, I got away […]

Effing Feline isn’t to blame #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, wished you a Happy Halloween last week, even though that was too early — but it’s not my fault. Twiggles the dog is to blame. She tried on her costume and wanted a picture, and that confused me. It’s all her fault! I’ve selected another snippet from Escapee, book 2 of the […]

Defenseless at my feet #mfrwhooks

We’re switching today to the sequel to The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station. The series is called Repelling the Invasion, and it follows members of the Dukelsky family as they get caught up in an  interstellar conflict with the humans from the Proxima star system, aka Proxies. Guardian Angel saw Priam “Duke” Dukelsky find the […]

Effing Feline has a word #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have a word for you. Just one little tiny word. To see what it is, though, you’ll have to read on. I’ve selected another snippet from Escapee, book 2 of the Repelling the Invasion series. (Minus the African Queen subtitle, you’ll notice!) Enemies from the Proxima star system have invaded the isolated […]

Effing Feline finds a man #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, think October is the best month. Why? Because Halloween gives you humans a chance to do what you should be doing every month — pretend you’re something else. Like , oh, perhaps — a cat? Today I’m moving on to the sequel of The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, Escapee is book 2 of […]

Tooting, but neither oboe nor London #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop. For  week 46, the writing prompt is: Let Me Brag for a Minute This is a dangerous topic! My ego is, shall we say, well developed, and I’m somewhat prone to tooting my own horn. Of course, that’s only natural for an oboist, right? Whose […]

Effing Feline seeks his roots

I, Effing Feline, haven’t managed to track down any of my sisters yet (click here for the background), but I’ve discovered some cats who surely must be related to me. Today I’ll show you the first of my famous relatives. Joan of Arcat is one of the most famous European cats. She’s considered a heroine […]

Call me a Prairie Vole #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 41, the writing prompt is: My First Love Scientists have found that some prairie voles are genetically programmed to be monogamous. They’ve even located the gene that controls this. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have found that natural selection drives some […]

Effing Feline is a pig

I, Effing Feline, have the house to myself for the day. You see, Mr V’s off lollygagging at a writer’s conference. I’m left with one of those feeders that dispense as much cat food as I can eat. I consider it a challenge. Can I finish the entire container of food before he returns? Watch me […]
