5-Star Review

Just received this fabulous review of Katz’ Cat by Canadian author, Anne Shillolo:


I liked this book so much that I did not want it to end! Katz’s Cat has it all. Sweet humor, lovable characters, talented pets, and a cast of memorable characters. Is there really a place called Twinkle, Texas? I want to go there!


Main character Jimmy Katz is an honest, open-hearted reporter who decides to leave The Big City for a quieter life in Twinkle. It’s not long before he finds out that even a small town can be hiding big secrets. And Jimmy finds himself at the center of a deadly conflict.


The mystery plot is complex, making the book a real page-turner, as we follow Jimmy, along with his new friends, loquacious parrot, and clever kitten, towards a surprise ending. I hope this is a series and can’t wait for Book 2. If you like books by Jana DeLeon or Lilian Jackson Braun, Katz’s Cat will make your day!

Many authors are also independent publishers. In my case, I’m the author/publisher/box packer/shipper/stand-in-line-at-the-post office gal for two of my books: my hardcover The Puppy Baby Book, and the Hot Chocolate paperback.

When you see my books on Amazon or other sites, I receive the purchase order from the store and I ship the books to those sites, or directly to the buyer.

If you wanted an autograph, you won’t get one this way unless you turn around and send the book to me requesting an autograph — paying shipping three times.


Order directly from me and request an autograph and you will have your signed book! Everyone is happy! I get to keep all the money and you get your autograph!

What a fun story! This is one of those books that made me laugh out loud more than once. I love the characters and the story keeps you on your toes. The setting in the south is fun too. This author is definitely onto something – can’t wait for more from her!
