peanutsI am in a quandary. Since I’ve had so much fun publishing my Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, I would like to step back in time and publish one of my yet-to-be-discovered books. I have 2 in mind, but can’t decide between them. I hope you can help.

sunflower & catCAT SUMMER is one of a science-fantasy fiction tetralogy where cats save the world. Twice!
Lise has a special destiny: to help a clowder of sentient cats save the world from an evil older than history, itself. It is a terrible battle but Lise and her comrades prevail, putting an end to war, poverty, ignorance and want. The world is a better place.
               Or is it?
               A century later, it’s become clear that something has been lost. The new civilization produces no artists, no musicians, no scientists, no philosophers. Instead of peace, inertia has taken hold. Lise, now at the end of her life, must join her cat-friends once more to restore the Spark of the Human Spirit, but the goal cannot be reached without hard sacrifice.


il_340x270_239028427PLACID RIVER RUNS DEEP is another mystery. No cats though.

When Ember MacKay learns she has a life-threatening illness, she runs away to the old family cabin on the bucolic Placid River, but instead of solace, she finds mayhem, murder, and a revenge plot that spans the generations.
               Grayson Tanner hasn’t seen Ember since they were kids but he knows about hepatitis C, the chronic disease responsible for thousands of deaths each year. He is sympathetic to Ember’s plight, but when three members of the close-knit Placid River community are murdered, the pair put personal concerns aside to collaborate on finding a motive. Their discovery is so unthinkable they pass it off as pure fancy until Gray realizes Ember may be next to die.


Please comment and I promise to answer. I would appreciate your thoughts. Commenters will be entered into a contest to win whichever book gets published.

I am the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane. Words to live by: Spay and neuter; Live long and prosper; Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Hard choice. They both sound really good. But I think the cat one sounds more interesting and different. I’d really like to check it out.

    Hi, Mollie,
    I vote for the second one, as I’m not that attracted to science fiction. Nice paintings next to your choices, by the way. Joyce
