I was so excited that Jane Henderson chose to do a feature story on Midnight in the October 18, 2018 Entertainment section of the Post Dispatch. The title of the story, “Wentzville Cat named Midnight inspires author’s new picture book can be read here.
Another surprise happened when Midnight the One-Eyed Cat received these honors:
- Chanticleer Little Peeps Early Reader First Place award
- Montaigne Medal Finalist (Eric Hoffer Foundation)
- Foreword Indies Finalist, picture books
Happy Book Birthday to Midnight! September 4 was the official LIVE date for Midnight, the One-Eyed Cat to meet the world! Midnight is available at local bookstores and on Amazon now!
Having only one eye can be devastating, but, Midnight, the One-Eyed Cat, learns to build confidence, regain her spirit, and become the best she can be with the help of her most unlikely friend, Starlight, the Three-legged Rat, and his bird buddies.
Pat Wahler and I signed a contract with Amphorae Publishing Group for our picture book for 4-6 year olds in August 2015 for Midnight, the One-Eyed Cat. Spring of 2017, Janelle Dimmett, of Whimsical Illustrations, signed on as our illustrator for the picture book!
The final cover is above! I just love it.

This story of courage is based loosely on my sweet 18 year old cat, Midnight whose resemblance to the illustrations is uncanny!
