The Cat, The Lady and The Liar--I asked for a little help. I needed a name for a very special cat, one who was pampered and spoiled and full of herself. You picked the name Isis and Isis she is! Long black hair, green eyes and on arrival in the story, she is wearing a diamond collar. Fitting for a goddess, don't you think?
That name helped me picture her and develop her character--because as any cat lover knows, each cat has their own unique character. I hope in the coming weeks, you will send me feedback about what you think of Isis. I like to believe that my cat characters parallel humans with similar traits. Isis feels entitled and I'm sure you know a few folks exactly like her.
There are more "borrowed" names in my series. My real life sister's name is Candace Carson. My daughter's name is Jillian. My son's name is Shawn. My husband's name is Mike. If I'm going to leave something of myself behind, they belong there with me. Now, I believe in the book I am currently writing, I must name a cat Agatha Christie, after my own sick baby. I don't know if she will be with me when the The Cat, The Wife and The Weapon (working title) comes out next year. But she will be in my heart forever.
Leann might be too shy to say it, but the rest of the Chicks aren't, and we want you to know that The Cat, The Lady and the Liar comes out on Tuesday (April 5th) in print and as an ebook. It's available on Amazon, from Barnes & Noble, and from regular independent and mystery bookstores.
