  • 10/12/17--21:51: Indescribable! #mfrwauthor
  • Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 41, the writing prompt is: My Blogging Inspiration This topic leaves me scratching my head, uncertain what is meant. But hey, it’s not a school essay assignment, so I’m just going to write about any darned thing that happens to inspire me to blog. […]

  • 10/14/17--21:26: Effing Feline is a pig
  • I, Effing Feline, have the house to myself for the day. You see, Mr V’s off lollygagging at a writer’s conference. I’m left with one of those feeders that dispense as much cat food as I can eat. I consider it a challenge. Can I finish the entire container of food before he returns? Watch me […]

    Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 41, the writing prompt is: My First Love Scientists have found that some prairie voles are genetically programmed to be monogamous. They’ve even located the gene that controls this. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have found that natural selection drives some […]

    I, Effing Feline, haven’t managed to track down any of my sisters yet (click here for the background), but I’ve discovered some cats who surely must be related to me. Today I’ll show you the first of my famous relatives. Joan of Arcat is one of the most famous European cats. She’s considered a heroine […]

    Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop. For  week 46, the writing prompt is: Let Me Brag for a Minute This is a dangerous topic! My ego is, shall we say, well developed, and I’m somewhat prone to tooting my own horn. Of course, that’s only natural for an oboist, right? Whose […]

    I, Effing Feline, think October is the best month. Why? Because Halloween gives you humans a chance to do what you should be doing every month — pretend you’re something else. Like , oh, perhaps — a cat? Today I’m moving on to the sequel of The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, Escapee is book 2 of […]

    I, Effing Feline, have a word for you. Just one little tiny word. To see what it is, though, you’ll have to read on. I’ve selected another snippet from Escapee, book 2 of the Repelling the Invasion series. (Minus the African Queen subtitle, you’ll notice!) Enemies from the Proxima star system have invaded the isolated […]

Guardian Angel saw Priam “Duke” Dukelsky find the […]

    I, Effing Feline, wished you a Happy Halloween last week, even though that was too early — but it’s not my fault. Twiggles the dog is to blame. She tried on her costume and wanted a picture, and that confused me. It’s all her fault! I’ve selected another snippet from Escapee, book 2 of the […]

  • 11/03/18--21:12: Effing Feline Meows his Mind
  • I, Effing Feline, have a free rein with this week’s post! Mr Valentine (i.e. my pet human, Ed) won’t be looking over my shoulder. He’s spending much of the weekend at the local Comic Con, speaking on panels and selling books — although maybe I should make that ‘book,’ singular. Snort. Yay, I got away […]

    I, Effing Feline, would like to be serious for once, so no laughing or sniggering. Today, November 11, is the anniversary of the end of World War One. That war had a huge impact on the family of my pet human, Ed Hoornaert. A hundred years ago, the family lived outside of Roeselaere, near Ypres and […]

  • 11/12/18--10:05: Headers Up!
  • The header image of this blog has proved to be a a maintenance nightmare. You see, it shows the covers of all my books. Actually, that’s not true. It doesn’t show my computer programming books, nor the contemporary romances I wrote for Silhouette Books. But it does show my science fiction and sci fi romance books, […]

    After missing a couple weeks, I’m back with a hook from Escapee, a re-release of an award-winning science fiction romance. Catt Sayer and Hector Dukelsky are fleeing an enemy invasion, in an airship. They have company — an ugly creature called a skoot, which was described earlier like this: “Except for sparse fur, its head […]

    I, Effing Feline, object to the way cats are objectified in advertisement! They’re treated not as individual cats, but as mere things. It’s not a new disgrace, either, as these pictures show. Puss in Boots, a heroic folk figure, is here reduced to a mere caricature to sell shoe polish! If that doesn’t convince your […]

    I, Effing Feline, showed my intellectual prowess last week by announcing the birth of a new movement certain to sweep the nation and redefine the Internet — felinism. However, there seems to be some uncertainty about how this new ism is pronounced.

    I, Effing Feline, am going to present evidence of cat’s undeniable superiority in order to encourage you to join the Felinism Movement. Did you know that cats directly inspired some of the most enduring literature in history? Here’s proof that we inspired The Hardy Boys series: Romance, too. It defies belief that one of the […]

    I, Effing Feline, am getting ready for Christmas. The most important preparation is convincing the world of the crucial role cats have played this holiday season. After all, felines invented good cheer by their use of catnip. Here is my Exhibit A: In Mr. Valentine’s recently released sci fi romance novel, Escapee, enemies have invaded the […]
