Effing Feline feels no guilt #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, chose this week’s snippet only because Ed, aka Mr Valentine, says it’s crucial to understanding the heroine of Constellation XXI. Personally, though, I don’t understand it at all. Guilt? What the dogfart is that? To quote a famous cat (who really wrote those plays), guilt is “but a poor player that struts […]

Don’t think about him at all #mfrwhooks

Another hook from Constellation XXI, my latest sci-fi romance. Sienna Dukelsky is a tugship pilot whose job is to guide incoming spaceships to a safe harbor at the space station orbiting her home world. Her first-ever incoming ship is piloted by none other than Crispin Hunt, her first and best lover from years ago. But […]

Effing Feline hunts #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, made a fascinating discovery when Ed, my pet human, moved the bed where he and Mrs Valentine sleep. There are things to hunt under there! For a mighty hunter like me, this is a world-shaking discovery. Our house has no mice — I’ve never even seen a real mouse — so unfortunately […]

Exactly a Handful #mfrwhooks

Another hook from Constellation XXI, my latest sci-fi romance. Sienna Dukelsky is a tugship pilot whose job is to guide incoming spaceships to a safe harbor at the space station orbiting her home world.

Effing Feline naps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have an extremely long attention span — for a cat, that is — and right now I’m concentrating hard at being literary so I can choose another snippet for your Ed-fication. (See what I did there?) I want each snippet to be the best I can possibly find, so — Uh, excuse […]

Effing Feline, astronaut! #wewriwa

  I, Effing Feline, like my pet human’s stories about outer space — but wouldn’t they be astronomically better with feline heroes and heroines? Just imagine! Today’s snippet from Constellation XXI continues picks up shortly after last week’s. After positioning her tugship to intercept any spaceships coming in through her sector, she looks at family […]

Evening Star? #mfrwhooks

Effing Feline is a tulip #wewriwa

  I, Effing Feline, want wooden shoes. Why, you ask? Because I learned that my cousin, Pamela Kaat, wears them. Her pet humans are Ed’s son and his girlfriend, who live in The Netherlands. Over there the law is that all cats must wear wooden shoes. It’s true, I swear. Pamela told me so herself […]

Holding Mommy’s hand #mfrwhooks

I’m  officially old, folks. The dental assistant had to take an impression of my teeth. Being a serious-minded bloke, I said “Judi, Judi, Judi,” doing my best Cary Grant impression. When I explained what the heck I was doing, the assistant said, “Who’s she?” Suddenly I felt ten years older. My advanced years won’t keep […]
