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.

Jaw hurts from the surgery. It did not help that last night, I thought I was removing a piece of chicken stuck in between my teeth and it turned out to be one of my stitches. Hoping tomorrow will be … Continue reading
I’m having oral surgery in about an hour. I have an unnatural fear of dentists to begin with, due to my childhood dentist being my great-uncle who though that I didn’t need to bother with Novocaine for the little cavities. … Continue reading
