    Repelling the Invasion Escapee was released April 19, 2016. It’s the second book in a loosely connected series called Repelling the Invasion. The books can be read in any order; they’re connected only by focusing on members of the Dukelsky family — first Priam (nicknamed Duke) and then his twin brother Hector (nicknamed Hank). You don’t have to […]

    I describe my new science fiction romance, Escapee, as The African Queen in Outer Space. The 1951 movie, The African Queen inspired the book. My version is set on an inhospitable moon, rather than the African Jungle, but in both tales the hero and heroine battle nature and, ultimately, the invading enemy. How did I use the movie to inspire a science […]

    I, Effing Feline, told you that my cousin, Lee, was coming to visit. He’s here, and I adore Cousin Lee. Having such a marvelous relative makes me feel empowered. Invincible. Strong. When Lee wants something, he takes it — and my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, is too polite to object. I love it! After last week’s […]

    I, Effing Feline, still like Cousin Lee … but he’s been here too hissing long. If he gets to the food bowl before I do, there’s nothing left for me. He broke my cat climber by leaping to the top level. Yesterday we were playing with a catnip mouse, and when I actually got it from […]

  • An Easy Way to Find Lots of Place Names When writing science fiction or fantasy, you often need a lot of place name. For example, in my recent release, Escapee, my hero and heroine were flying around a Mars-sized moon to attack enemy headquarters. They flew over a lot of valleys and mountain ranges — so I […]

  • Sometimes it feels like I’ve traveled extensively, but other times I feel like a stick in the mud. I came across neat little site that displays my travels graphically. Douwe Osinga’s site has a neat little app that creates maps showing the places a person has visited in: The world The United States India Canada Brazil Here […]

    I, Effing Feline, am smarter than humans. You’ve probably noticed that about me. Today is the 90th birthday of an aunt of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert. She and her husband recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary . . . sort of like Kathy in the short story Thimbleriggers. Mr V insists that’s pure coincidence, since he wrote the […]

  • I, Effing Feline, have gotten e-mails about my favorite music. Well, actually I haven’t … but I should have. Don’t you people out there have the good sense to be guided by my tastes? My pet human, Ed Hoornaert, recently signed a contract for a third book in his Repelling the Invasion series. If you missed […]

  • I, Effing Feline, am bereft. Ed, my pet human, has abandoned me to see his son’s dog, Sadie, in some place called Toronto. I suppose he’s visiting with his sons, too — but it’s the dog that bothers me. I’ve been telling cat jokes, but today I’m switching to jokes that make fun of !&*$*# […]

But to show I’m a bigger cat than he is, I’ll present a snippet from his sci fi romance, Escapee. Despite his unfeeling […]

    I, Effing Feline, was listening to Mrs V’s music, and it got me thinking. It was from The Sound of Music, and this is the line that got me thinking. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens these are a few of my favorite things. The song’s unimportant, but what is important are my favorite […]

    I, Effing Feline, just learned that I have sisters. Sisters! I feel like I’ve slept leapt onto the pages of one of my pet human’s books. Talk about a plot twist. I know this because Google says cats have more than one kitten in a litter — but clearly, no other males could stand comparison with […]

    I, Effing Feline, figured out last week that I must have sisters. I’ve started searching for them. Imagine how awed they’ll be when they learn that I, the world’s most literary cat, am their brother! But I’m having trouble finding them. Can you believe that Google is utterly useless when it comes to searching for cats […]
