Subject: query. Cats and Dogs Tell No Tales.
Cats and Dogs Tell No Tales is a fun filled book for the middle school girl. Emma, the storyteller, shares her first experiences as a student witch. Her neighbors have been turned into familiars for the local coven. Anyone that gets to nosy or bothersome is turned into a cat or dog by her grandmother.
Harry, a neighbor, familiar, and a Jack Russell Terrier mix is the instigator of an animal revolt and supposedly holds the key to everlasting youth. It is a completed novel (19,138 words.)
This is my first novel for the middle school age student. It was inspired by the exploits of my granddaughter. Both her and her best friend have actually tried (unsuccessfully) love spells.
My father introduced me to writing and literature just as I share literature with my granddaughter. I am a retired RN and have a B.A. from Barat College in Lake Forest, Illinois and Loyola University in Chicago. I have recently published my first adult novel which is the beginning of a historical paranormal romance trilogy. This was my driving force to produce this book.
Please enjoy reading the 10 pages I have include in this e-mail. I sent 10 pages because the first few are just the cast of characters but pertinent to the story. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
