First book: "The Kneading;" a photo and written essay on men and cats; due Thanksgiving 2013!!
For the record, my company is actually HappyPlatypus, with a dynamic and rather sexy "s" there at the end of "HappyPlatypu." But Blurb ran out of spaces and/or esses. And so in this universe, I'm a HappyPlatypu, which I assure you, is not nearly so fecal as it sounds.
This particular platypu is an eccentric former sensitive-ponytail goth boy, now aged past the ponytail but clinging to the sensitivity and the good taste in music. I've spent most of my professional life in communications, both as a writer and photographer, and after hours I've devoted my time to rescuing cats and dogs and the occasional wayward human. Along the way I've been chased up a tree naked by a bear (long, long story), been humiliated on national television and discovered that it's hard to impress a potential date by getting bitten by an alligator.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
|My next book, called "Man-o'-Paws" will come out before Christmas 2013. It will be a book of humorous and poignant essays about coping with job loss, weight gain, living with M.S., surviving rape, breaking out in rescue animals and losing one's glasses, cell phone and pants.|
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
If you love fantasy, read Jim Butcher. Not only is he from the KC metro, but he's amazing.|
If you love rescue folk, humor and mystery, read David Rosenfelt. His Andy Rosenfelt legal series is light-hearted but fun but intricate.
If you love monsters, horror and guns, read the Monster Hunters International series by Larry Correia. It's amazing.
If you love mysteries and police procedurals, you can't go wrong with Michael Connelly.
If you love classic fantasy, Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time."
