https://ercloudwalker.wordpress.com nominated my blog for the “Black Cat Blue Sea Award“!
I got quite a chuckle out of this because I’m currently editing Me-YEOW!, which is written from the purrspective of Xander de Hunter, Catamondo’s version of 007… Xander lives aboard a sailboat and Me-YEOW! is dedicated to Spooky Pilch, a venerable house panther, who went over the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year.
The Black Cat Blue Sea Award is for blogs who have inspired and moved a wide audience and there’s humor for a smile or a chuckle.

Cloud Walker’s Questions:
1) What inspired you to start your blog
Originally, I intended it to be an author’s blog, but I quickly realized that my posts were about the information I discovered during research for characters, backgrounds and situations in my novels. At first, the topics were divided between healing herbs for Nimri (Kazza’s trilogy), who is an herbal healer, and cats (Kazza is a magical, alien tiger). Then, as I began the Sea Purrtector Series, the posts began to lean toward pet care and humor – as soon as the election is over, I plan to resume those. For now, I feel the best way to protect US pets is to tell the stories that our biased media seems to be avoiding. That said, I still share ‘Humpday Humor’ (usually about birds) on Wednesday; ‘Saturday Snickers’ on Saturday (cats) and ‘Canine Comedy’ (dogs) on Sunday.
2) What was your dream of life as a teen
As a teen, I wanted to become an architect, but my father was insistent that I go to a faith-based college and Calvin College didn’t offer that type of degree. Thus, I majored in English and became a technical writer, then later an author.
3) Do you have any regrets
No. By the time my husband and I chose to have children, I was able to freelance from home. IMHO, having an at-home parent is extremely important for the future of humanity and I’m not sure if I could have designed buildings from home.
