The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

I think it’s time for a new virtual menorah. Here are all of mine in one picture. Happy Hanukkah to all of my Jewish readers!
Hamas held its anniversary celebration in Gaza on Sunday. Their “celebration” including burning effigies of religious Jews, parading long-range missiles around, and, oh, yeah, threatening the destruction of Israel. Vowing to destroy Israel, Hamas paraded some 2,000 of its armed … Continue reading
A happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers. Eat lots of turkey (or tofurkey, if that’s your thing), and ignore the scolds who tell you not to indulge on this day of indulgence. Meimei agrees.
