This idea for this book came to me at the beginning of the year, whilst reading the stories Trademe members were writing about their cats on the community message board.
Trademe is a very popular auction site in New Zealand, along the lines of ebay but more rustic! The community message boards are a colourful plethora of people, and the stories these lovely people told about their beloved cats inspired me to collate this book.
I live in Auckland, New Zealand - and have travelled to many places. Because we live so close to the Pacific Islands, we have more opportunities than most to experience the wonder, colour and culture of these beautiful isles. Samoa is a true favourite for us - and my first book is about our wedding there in August 2007. Greg and I live near the beach in Takapuna, with our two gorgeous cats.
