My three daughters are some of my most enthusiastic cheerleaders—as I am theirs. When I published my first book, they arranged for a celebration at a local outdoor bookstore. When I returned home from Dubai after having been invited to give the keynote speech at a Toastmaster’s Conference there, I found a huge “Welcome Home” sign across my garage. Yup, a thoughtful gesture by my girls. They sent notes and cards of support, congrats, etc. when I began producing the mystery series. After I’d published nine or ten of the Klepto Cat Mysteries, they presented me with a gorgeous throw with pictures of the book covers. (You can see it in this photograph.)
This year I will publish my 100th book. Book 54 of the Klepto Cat Mystery series is going through the pre-publication stage now and will be a reality within mere weeks. Another milestone to celebrate, and my girls did so. Last week I received this beautiful bouquet of roses. What a life! I get to do what I love most—write fun stories brimming with cats, I have hundreds of fans, a purrfect life full of cats, and a wonderful family who supports me in so many ways. I am blessed.
