The Saint of Quarantine Island — the setting

All about the setting of The Saint of Quarantine Island People who’ve read The Saint of Quarantine Island have commented that the setting is especially vivid. That’s because I was writing what I knew. Decades ago, when I was fresh out of university, I taught at Echo Bay’s one-room school. Although it’s been a long […]

Effing Feline overeats #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am suffering  from a horrible case of stomach woes after eating several — eight, actually — cans of salmon in quick succession. I’m taking a quick break from the litter box to turn today’s blog post over to my pet human, Ed. ======================================= Ed here, folks. I have some questions for you, […]

Effing Feline watches the news #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, know a lot is going on in the world right now. How do I know? I follow the news, of course. Don’t you? Of course you do. You know what the saddest, most disturbing thing in the news is? I’ll tell you after this word from my sponsor, Ed’s upcoming novel, The […]

Effing Feline wants to fly #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, want to fly. Just think how many birds I could catch. I could become the greatest flying ace in the history of catdom! We keep track of these things, you know. Who’s currently the greatest ace? I’ll show you after this word from our sponsor, The Saint of Quarantine Island. We left […]

Effing Feline blushes #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am a cat, and like all cats I’m proud of my reputation for audacity and independent thinking. Ever tried to take a cat for a walk, without a leash? Hah to that! We cats do our own thing — which makes me admire today’s snippet. Last week we left fourteen-year-old Billy Seaweed […]

Effing Feline demands triple pay #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am NOT purring. Definitely not. Why not? Because I’ve been told — not asked, mind you, told — that  today’s post must serve four three purposes: Reveal the official new name of Ed’s newest Work in Progress (WIP). Present the next snippet from Ed’s WIP. Reveal the book’s cover. There would’ve been […]

Effing Feline wishes you Mother’s Day #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, interrupt my regularly scheduled snippets from Ed’s WIP, Never Saw a Purple Cow, to bring you a Mother’s Day special. Today’s snippet is from Ed’s science fiction romance, Constellation XXI, which features a rather unique first contact with aliens. You see, one of the aliens is pregnant. Very pregnant. As in RIGHT […]

Effing Feline discusses airplanes #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, heard Ed, my pet human, talking about a nephew who’s an airplane pilot. What a ridiculous occupation!  Why would any cat in his right mind want to fly in a plane? Yes, I always land on my feet — but from miles up in the air? I’m good, but not that good. […]

Beatle t’battle t’bottle t’boodle #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, need to clarify a recent post, in which I said Sadie the Good Dog was my Dutch cousin from Amsterdam. Here’s the Instagram post of hers I talked about: I want to make clear that I am not related by blood to Sadie. Or any dog, anywhere. We’re related only by marriage. There, […]

Effing Feline lightens your quarantine 24 #QuarantineCats

I, Effing Feline, continue to do my part to help you poor humans who are suffering from confinement because of the Covid19 virus. We cats, of course, are free to live our lives as usual, not that I’m gloating about it. Check back  for another video. If you still need something to fill your time, […]
