"All cats dream, and many remember, some as philosophers, dreaming of a better world, some as adventurers exploring their own. Some cats are poets, immersed in perpetual wonder, with visions of plump mice and round moons. Some are warriors, some are high priests, but whether they are ruled by their hearts, their senses or their minds, whether they sleep on soft pillows or hunker in alleyways, all cats dream."
So begins a story woven from the pelts of wild-born, told by an old tom, Red, to three rescued kittens. His Abyssinian mother, dumped in an alley where her pedigree couldn't protect her, was rescued by a clan of ferals who bring her to their home believing she is the 'Discarded Queen' of an ancient prophecy. In their world, homelessness is a crime and death the only punishment. What wouldn't their kings and prophets not do to alleviate the suffering? Can Rosie end mankind's genocide of the wild born? Can the wisdom cats and pod leaders of the Green defeat the evil rising in their midst? Discover for yourself the answers to this heart-warming, magical world of Felidae and friends.

Rosie yearns for her human, and sets off to find her, but she and her troupe are relentlessly pursued by the maimed, vengeful Grimfang, leader of the ghostdogs of the Green. Grimfang finds an ally in Grip, a disillusioned, abandoned guard dog, and Fleazor, a monstrous sewer rat with a secret agenda. In the Green, the shaman Ghost battles for the clan's survival, while Rosie's son, Bigpaw, grows into his destiny as leader of all the clans, forging an alliance with Roak, a young raven prince.
The battle to save the Green is not over. The sorcerer Foxclaw reveals his most deadly plan to destroy the kin, aided by Char, an amitious dragon-queen of a cat, and her ruthless two-legged, Angus McCheney. Danger is everywhere as the kin struggle to rise against the evil oppressing them. It's their last attempt to manifest the Prophecy and bring about the All-Peace it promises before they are destroyed.
The trilogy of fantasy novels: My Name Is Red - A Cat's Tale is for young adult and adult reading. It carries a message on many levels: as an exciting animal fantasy, a celebration of the sanctity of life, and (despite the fantasy) an honest depiction of the plight of homeless and abandoned animals. My husband and I have been doing rescue work for almost a decade and it is our sincerest desire to raise consciousness in our readers about the necessity of neutering pets and the cruelty of abandonment. We're not preachers, being guilty ourselves of all the above before we realized the consequences of our actions. We're here to share what we've learned.
