"My Abyssinian cat, Monty, was one of my inspirations for writing this story. Besides being as friendly as any dog, Monty likes to take walks on a leash and go for rides in the car. He will even let you give him a bath... sometimes. Monty is a frequent sight as he goes on his daily strolls around the town of Ave Maria. 

My other inspiration was Ave Maria itself, a new town in Florida that is home to Ave Maria University. It's a place where neighbors know one another and where store owners call customers - and their cats! - by name. I was delighted to work with an artist, Tom Cardamone, whose illustrations convey the beauty of this unique town and the Oratory that stands in its center."
