Effing Feline sits on Buddha’s lap #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, love the extra laps that Christmas brings. Ed’s children have come home for Christmas from Toronto (2 of them) and Amsterdam, traveling over 10,000 miles one way just to let me sit on their laps. I heartily approved — and I’m a connoisseur of the very finest of human laps! Today is […]

Effing Feline keeps it simple

I, Effing Feline, am going to keep this holiday season simple — and the Simple Truth is that Christmas is for cats. Here’s proof: In Mr. Valentine’s recently released sci fi romance novel, Escapee, enemies have invaded the mining moon where Catt Sayer, a civilian pilot, makes her living flying supplies on a decrepit airship. A […]

Effing Feline announces a sale #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am getting ready for Christmas. The most important preparation is convincing the world of the crucial role cats have played this holiday season. After all, felines invented good cheer by their use of catnip. Here is my Exhibit A: In Mr. Valentine’s recently released sci fi romance novel, Escapee, enemies have invaded the […]

Effing Feline makes an offer you can’t refuse #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am going to present evidence of cat’s undeniable superiority in order to encourage you to join the Felinism Movement. Did you know that cats directly inspired some of the most enduring literature in history? Here’s proof that we inspired The Hardy Boys series: Romance, too. It defies belief that one of the […]

Effing Feline pronounces Felinism #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, showed my intellectual prowess last week by announcing the birth of a new movement certain to sweep the nation and redefine the Internet — felinism. However, there seems to be some uncertainty about how this new ism is pronounced. FEE line ism FEE lin ism Fuh LINE ism Effing ism etc. I shall […]

Effing Feline founds felinism #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, object to the way cats are objectified in advertisement! They’re treated not as individual cats, but as mere things. It’s not a new disgrace, either, as these pictures show. Puss in Boots, a heroic folk figure, is here reduced to a mere caricature to sell shoe polish! If that doesn’t convince your […]

Quick Quiz about Earth’s new neighbor

Q. Quick quiz: What’s the nearest star to our sun? A. Proxima Centauri — a red dwarf that is too faint to be seen with the naked eye. It’s part of a three-star system, the brightest of which is Alpha Centauri. Q. Interesting! The villains in Ed’s Repelling the Invasion series are called Proximanians; I wonder […]

Keep that thing away from me #mfrwauthor

After missing a couple weeks, I’m back with a hook from Escapee, a re-release of an award-winning science fiction romance. Catt Sayer and Hector Dukelsky are fleeing an enemy invasion, in an airship. They have company — an ugly creature called a skoot, which was described earlier like this: “Except for sparse fur, its head […]

Headers Up!

The header image of this blog has proved to be a a maintenance nightmare. You see, it shows the covers of all my books. Actually, that’s not true. It doesn’t show my computer programming books, nor the contemporary romances I wrote for Silhouette Books. But it does show my science fiction and sci fi romance books, […]

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 […]
