Interview With Luna

Luna

 

(Harry walks on the stage with a cocky stride. The audience notices something different about him, something in the coolness of his expression. Usually, his fur is wild, like a lion, but today it is brushed until it is silky. He walks up to the microphone with even more confidence than usual)

Harry: “Hi there, folks! I have one more interview to do, and out of the four, it’s the best one. Let me present the lovely Luna.”

(A beautiful petite tabby Bengal prances onto the stage. She is feminine, but has a mischievous twinkle in her eye)

Luna: (in a soft voice that was barely audible) “Hello, Harry. Nice to see you.”

(Harry impishly grins, tongue-tied. He seems to be far away)

(Luna nudges him under the table, causing him to come out of his dreamlike state)

Harry: (clears his throat) “Yes, I’m glad that you made it. So, tell us, what are your plans, now that The Jamaican Mission is through?”

Luna: “Well, I’ve been thinking about that. I suppose I’ll just laze around until the next mission, assuming you’ll allow me to tag along on your adventure.”

Harry: (winks at Luna) “You know I will.”

(Luna blushes)

Harry: “What was your favorite part of the mission?”

Luna: (without hesitation) “Why, meeting you, of course!”

Harry: (smiles openly) “Thank you, Luna. Because we don’t want to tell too much of the story, I need to cut your interview short. The folks at home will just have to read the book to see what happens.”

Luna: (bows her head gracefully) “Thanks for having me on, Harry. (she winks and lowers her voice to a whisper) I’ll see you later.”

(This time, it is Harry’s turn to blush as Luna turns to stroll off the stage.)

Harry: (regains his composure) “Thanks to all the people at home. Don’t forget, in celebration of Harry’s second book coming out, Amazon is having a sale on The Legend of the Pink Diamond. The Jamaican Mission is on for pre-order, as well. Until next time, be safe and happy reading.”

 

Harry the Wonder Cat: The Jamaican Mission

Those of you who have heard about Harry’s new book know that it is set in Jamaica. In The Jamaican Mission, which is coming April 21st, Harry goes on vacation with his two roommates and solves a mysterious murder that happened a century ago.

Since he has to leave his gang behind at Harrot Reef, he finds a new gang that is led by a spunky little cat called Luna. Like the gang at home, this beach gang has several members in it, but when Harry calls for volunteers, only Luna and two brothers, Bobby and Sox, step forward.

Later Bobby brings in Savanna, the neighborhood dog. Now those of you who read Harry’s first book, The Legend of the Pink Diamond, know he has no use for dogs. However, Savanna proved herself invaluable and Harry had to rethink his opinion.

Will Harry and the Beach Gang solve the murder that happened so long ago? You’ll have to read the book to see.

Harry was based on my first cat, Monkeyface, but his physical attributes were from my imagination. The other cats and the dog are real and chosen from my Facebook community page, Kitty Tales.

While writing this book, I found myself laughing in some parts and crying in others. I visited Jamaica years ago, and I reminisced as I researched the beautiful island. I hope you enjoy reading The Jamaican Mission as much as I enjoyed writing it.
