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.

Excellent movie. I think it was almost the best of the bunch. If you were thinking of seeing it, definitely do so. I didn’t find any political statements in the movie, just your typical Dark Knight good and evil themes. … Continue reading
Can. Not. Wait.
Seriously? Really, this is a headline. Kristen Stewart ‘F**king Loves Acting’ Because She Is ‘Really Boring’. It popped up on my Google News feed. To think I used to read–and enjoy–entertainment magazines. My, tastes change. And oh, I will watch … Continue reading
