Happy International Children's Day

Happy #InternationalChildrensBookDay My best seller Finding Mya features the best cat in the world - Herman TattleCat. Not Rabbit - who is trying his best to be the baddest cat in the world. Rab’s book Diary of an AssRabbit is currently in the works. Finding Mya was written for adults to enjoy while reading to their children, and features original artwork by then-eight-year-old Mya Lyn Campbell, a fan of Herman’s who sent me drawings of him that inspired this book. She even did a book signing in her home town! Love that so much.

FINDING MYA by Kimberley Koz (me!) is available on Amazon.

“Eight-year-old Mya has a magical relationship with her grandma’s foster kitten, Herman. They can talk to each other. Not with words. With tickle thoughts!

Then Mya’s vacation ends and Herman is adopted by a lady whose dog treats cats like chew toys. He vows to escape! But how will he find her? Mya says she will leave picture-maps along the road to her house. All he has to do is follow them and they will live Happily Ever After. It’s a great plan. Too bad it goes wrong right from the start.”

This book has been celebrated by adults and children for several years, and one I'm the most proud of. Writing it took years because I had to learn how to write for children, and was sent an angel of a coach by the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators by the name of Carol Iverson who I was so lucky to meet and become friends with.

While writing for kids isn't my norm, writing about the love of cats from the time I was a child comes naturally for me, and discovering a little girl in Minnesota who adored Herman via her mom's Twitter account has been the most rewarding part of being both a cat lover and a writer. So thank you Mya and Momma Deanie so much for your love and support on this project.

And now... my darling Rabbit aka the Original AssRabbit (heavy sigh) is here doing his lamest attempt to help me promote my book. I'm wondering how he will do when it's time to promote his own book, Diary of an AssRabbit - still in the works.
