Effing Feline wears the flags #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, learned that this is a holiday weekend in North America. In the States, it’s Memorial Day. and in Canada, Victoria Day. Victoria Day is traditionally the time to plant your garden, so Canadians celebrate by mucking about in the dirt. One of the ways Americans celebrate Memorial Day is by decorating with […]

Effing Feline comes out on top #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, gave my cousin Lee the lion a piece of my mind for making friends with Twiggles the dog and ignoring me. It took a lot of scolding, but Lee finally asked the perfect question: What can I do to make it up to you. Heh, heh, heh. I’ll tell you what I […]

Effing Feline hates cheerleaders #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, spent last night in Twiggles the dog’s doghouse. At first I was terrified of fleas, but I didn’t get bitten. Then I was afraid of ticks. But then I heard something that drove all fears out of my cunning feline mind — the coo-coo-ca-choo of a mourning dove.. As you know, I’m a […]

Effing Feline cries #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am leaking tears. My cousin Lee, whom I admire and aspire to become, adopted Twiggles the Dog as his new best friend — just because she gave him a 50-lb bag of dogfood! There’s only one thing for a self-respecting cat to do. Goodbye (sob) cruel, cruel world. (Wahhhh!) In Ed’s most […]

Effing Feline watches Youtube, too late #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that instead of eating Twiggles the Dog, my cousin Lee adopted her as his new best friend just because she gave him a 50-lb bag of dogfood. I guess that proves that if blood is thicker than water, kibble is thicker than blood. Sigh. In, my most recent […]

Effing Feline and the 50 pound bag of dogfood #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that my cousin Lee ate every last bit of my cat food and then stared at me while licking his chops. It was easy to realize he was wondering how I’d taste. What did I do? I introduced Lee to Twiggles the dog. Let her be Lee’s midafternoon […]

Effing Feline is so darned brilliant #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am so very smart! Brilliant even! I told you last week that my cousin Lee ate every last bit of cat food and then stared at me while licking his chops. Lee is a lion and I, though exceptionally fit, muscular, and ferocious, am a housecat. It was easy to realize he […]

Effing Feline gulps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, welcomes my cousin Lee to my house (that’s the good news), but I forgot how much lions eat (that’s the bad news). I had enough cat food on hand to feed Lee a snack (that’s the good news), but he ate every last bit of it(that’s the bad news). The REALLY bad news […]

It’s Alive! #mfrwhooks

No, I don’t mean Frankenstein’s monster — Hoornaert’s monster, Pandora Uncaged, book two in the Passion Island trilogy. The book can stand alone, although it alludes somewhat to events in book one. It’s heroine is Pandora Dayle, the younger sister of book one’s heroine, Ember Dayle. Booker, the seven-foot cupid makes an appearance that is even […]

Really weird (non-alien) animals #2

In Pandora Uncaged, book 2 in my Passion Island trilogy, Pandora Dayle is in charge of a animal hospital / zoo for indigenous animals on the new colony planet, Addoray. As you can imagine, there are loads of strange creatures in the book — slytherins, mobeaves, chasm cats, slop dogs, and the ubiquitous boothies. But […]
