It was finally my Super Kitty who inspired me to write and publish a picture book. She'd been battling cancer for nearly a year and died just before I got the book published. It's a bitter sweet publication, but I know my Super Kitty can still teach everyone what it means to be strong. She lost a limb but never let it slow her down. She went through chemo treatments like they were just a normal part of her day. The more she got sick, the more she coped. She was never thrown off-course at what life tossed her. Instead, she exhibited a resilience and adaptability that most people could look up to.
Riding the wave of publication, I also published Nautical Awakening. It was finally time! I'd been sitting on this novel for quite some time, trying to find just the right home for it, but, if anything, this past year has taught me that you don't know how much time you have left, so do what you have to do now. No more putting my writing off! It's time now. Because all the time we have for certain is now. Let's get to it!
