Back to Work!

I know, it's been awhile. Truth is, I took a little break after my delightful (but exhausting) Blog Tour for Fitzwilliam Darcy Rock Star. It's been an amazing thing- publishing my first book. I've met so many wonderful people and have been so thrilled and touched by all the great reviews readers have writen and shared.

I feel it's an excellent time to be a writer-the online community is so supportive and informative. I feel truly blessed.

But, it's time to get to it, so the first order of the day is blogging. I wanted to mention that I recently discovered the Stephanie Plum books. (I know, I know, I just hadn't gotten too them) So far I've read 4 (not in order) and have really enjoyed them. And I realized that the characters in those book can be used to perfectly describe my cats.

"Honey, I am the police."
Hobbes is Morelli. He's protective, he's always where you can find him, he's a lover. He'll fight and hunt all day and all night, frequently getting beat up in the process. He's got that 'I'm a cop' thing down, even to the cop eyes.

CowCat is Ranger. While he's the same size and shape as Hobbes, he's totally different in personality. CowCat is never where you expect him to be. He drifts in and out at any random moment. He has several other homes, and he doesn't seem to want to settle down in any of them. He's also more threatening than Hobbes, but less violent: CowCat will whap at people who annoy him, but I've never seen him hunt or even get into a serious fight. (Wreasling with Hobbes doesn't count)


And then, there's Miss Irene, who makes a good Lula, other than her size. (She's tiny) She's very fancy looking, she talks (a lot) and when push comes to shove, she's a complete whimp. But she wants to be in the middle of the action and has something to say about everything. (She's a bit dopey too) Plus, her attack of choice is sitting on people.

So, that's my life in a fun, short, picture-filled page. I hope you're all doing well, and will comment to tell me what literary characters your pets resemble.
