    I LOVE your Klepto Cat series! They make me laugh out loud, and I love books that can make me do that. There are a lot of characters and somehow they end up as extended family to the core characters, the Ivy family. The situations are funny, sad and sometimes a little scary – but they are always entertaining. I am hooked on these books and they can’t come out fast enough. Please keep writing them!

    I just finished binge reading all the books in your Klepto Cat series. I loved them all and look forward to when book 22 comes out. It has been fun and obviously addictive to follow Rags, Savannah and the whole gang in their mysteries without being bombarded with foul language and such. I finally checked out your blog and it is fascinating to learn how you create your art and incorporate yours (and others’) cat’s personalities and quirks into your stories. Our cat is a 13 yr old stripped tabby and I have to admit that I have learned a great deal about cats from reading your books and have started really focusing on his personality and not just viewing him as simply a pet.
