A cross-over book, appealing
to both children and adults, SOLOMON'S TALE is my best book yet.It is a
heart-warming cat story with a twist at the end, and, for the first time, I
have woven an irresistible golden thread of spirituality into a fiction book.
Reincarnation, angels, and how the soul survives death. Big issues, yes, but
this story is simply told by a beautiful cat who can see angels and who has
chosen to reincarnate to help a family go through the traumas of separation and
Solomon, and his mate Jessica were real
cats who belonged to me, and that is why they are so vividly portrayed in this
story. People who have read my books always say 'I couldn't put it down',
or 'I cried at the end'. SOLOMON'S TALE
will make you laugh and cry, and lift your spirits.
