I recently retired from the City of New York after working 33+ years. From June 1995 to June 2006 I wrote over 450 items for my community newspaper. It was during this time, I decided to see if I could write something else, and started to write a paranormal romance novel. I'm been writing it on/off [mostly off] for the past 7 1/2 years. Along the way my wife suggested I write something for children. Watching the antics of our two cats gave me the inspiration to write an enchanting storybook about unconditional love and compassion. The story is an exploration of the life lessons common to all of us. While children are quite astute when it comes to learning new things, they also dislike being hit over the head with with new lesons, as well as not liking being talked down to. Which is why I this story in a casual, personal way.
The contract I had with my publisher for my book, "A Lesson My Cat Taught Me", ended in March of this year . Given the important lesson(s) it tries to convey I decided to self-publish it. After completing all the tasks and jumping all the hurdles I needed to do to accomplish this endeavor, my book finally got re-released on October 2, 2010.
