Tell us about your new/latest release: I think a little background is needed.
I enrolled in an online class for writing. Being blind, I had a girlfriend help me. It wasn't until she told me it was for Romance, did I realize I was in the wrong classroom, but since she went to the trouble of enrolling me...writing is writing regardless the genre, right?
I was dating this woman from Ohio. One night, she allowed me to Braille her face. She had long bangs down to her eyebrows and a particularly pointed nose, and she told me she was once a glitter critter. Note: those people who sprinkle glitter all over their bodies and go to Barry Manalow concerts. Coupled with my vivid imagination, my character, Sophie Kate was born.
I believe it is the author's responsibility to educate as well as entertain. So my story is about a blind social worker who helps those who are less fortunate than himself. a lot of the scenes depicted in the book are from real experiences.
Sophie Kate brings Neil Bonnet into her world, the Land of the Glitter Critters. It is in this world that Neil recovers his vision, just in time to get
himself beat up.
Caterpillar, Kentucky is plagued by a gang of bank robbing bikers who are terrorizing the population. Sophie Kate needs a hero and someone
to save her and her people from certain extinction.
This story is like a French stone soup, it has a little of everything in it, sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. Then we add a little romance, humor, a little
Kung fu fighting, and a happy-ever-after.
I tried to convey a sense of freedom for our hero. From out his darkness into a world where he can see, but also, to run like the wind. A great
way to escape, huh?
Genre: romantic fantasy, paranormal
Blurb: The Cataroon and her human companion walked until they reached a ridge overlooking a vast prairie. The bright moonlight colored the panorama view for as far as Neil could see. He felt an utter stillness where the horizon left off and the vast multitudes of stars with its infinity picked up. The scene before them made his problems seem insignificant. A breeze caressed his face and ruffled his clothing like a lover in a moment of passion. He tilted his head towards the heavens. Neil spread his arms out as if giving himself up as a willing supplicant to his mistress’s whims. He opened his eyes to bear witness so vast a host of stars that he gasped with the feeling of insignificance.
Neil Bonnet never imagine such a sight and began to feel overwhelm with what he saw. He lowered his arms and turned to Sophie Kate. He caught her studying him with the tilt of her head.
“Never in my life have I ever experienced such beauty. It’s very humbling. No one could have ever articulated and still move me as I am moved tonight,” he spoke to himself as much as to her. She remained silent. “I lost my sight at an early age and what I did not know; I did not miss.” he said as he threw out his arms to indicate everything before him. “I suppose I have you to thank for all this, but words fail me.”
He inhaled and blew out his emotions. He turned back to face the Cataroon. “So, are you going to scratch me or what?” he asked with some curiosity.
She slowly stood and walked over to stand in front of him. She placed her paws on his broad shoulders. She leaned closer and had to stand on the tips of her toes to kiss him. She grabbed hold of his shirt to deepen the kiss before taking his bottom lip. She did not pull back after biting him, but suckled. The sensation sent electrical charges all the way down to his crotch and it continued to the bottom of his soul. She drew back while licking her lips.
“You must remove your clothing,” Sophie Kate ordered.
The longer Neil remained in this world; the more confident he became. He did not hesitate to strip off his clothing. Neil kept his eyes on Sophie Kate to watch her reaction as he took off his pants. Never before had he performed a strip tease, much less in the wide-open space. Her gaze stared down and he grew hard. This wild boldness changed as a queer feeling swept over Neil’s body and it frightened him a little. Was he being too trustful of this strange animal-like creature, even if she was a sexy lover? Then another strange sensation began coming out of his tailbone. He turned to look, but his ass would follow him around. The faster he turned to look, the faster his ass followed.
“Stop chasing your tail, you look silly.”
He looked up with raised eyebrows and saw her crooked smile.
He stopped and reached out with his hand and pulled up a furry tail. He studied her while stroking his tail. He saw her half-hooded eyes hunger for him. He had never before felt the lust of a woman checking him out as he metamorphosed from human to Cataroon. He felt sexy and proud as she admired his physical endowments.
Neil’s chest hair began thickening and spreading all over. The hair on his head grew into a mane, while the fur changed him into a lion-like Cataroon. Suddenly, an urge to stretch took possession of his focus. He allowed the Cataroon to mesh with his humanity. His body stretched along the ground with his front paws and claws extended. What a marvelous sensation. He extended his hind legs and rolled around in the prairie grass. Lazily, he sat back up and licked his chops. Neil, the Cataroon, narrowed his yellowed eyes with understanding. He felt or rather sensed the beast that was Cataroon. The beast felt a compulsion, or rather a need to mate. It was a strong urging. It overran his humanity, pushing it aside and allowing the animal’s instinctive nature to rule. It felt natural. He smiled with confidence and chittered.
“I feel like licking something,” his voice deepened into a growl as he climbed to all fours. His tail swished back and forth seemingly to fan his newly found passions.
The starry constellations twirled with the passage of time and Sophie Kate grew impatient. She stood on all fours.
“Now, we run. Come on,” Sophie Kate ordered and started across the prairie, but paused to look over her shoulder.
Neil stood captivated with his newly acquired senses and she knew she was being ignored. She knew what he was feeling. She had to be patient, but was a virtue she lacked.
The lion-like Cataroon’s ears flattened and his awareness focused at a rustling at the forest’s edge. The keenness of his hearing startled the human, for the rustling was at least a hundred yards away. His eyesight caught movement in the shadows, while he sniffed the air and detected a strange scent. His body instinctively lowered itself to the ground as his tail swished through the air in anticipation of a hunt. This is incredible. The part of the Cataroon that was still human felt more aware of his surroundings than he ever had since regaining his eyesight. He had quickly forgotten Sophie Kate.
However, there was a lesson about female Cataroons that he was going to learn. They were not patient creatures and they hated being ignored.
Sophie Kate knew he was lost to the animal. She picked up a dirt clod and hurled it towards him. It landed squarely between the eyes.
“Come on, big boy. Catch me if you can,” she challenged.
Neil stood up on all fours and shook off the dirt.
“I’ll get you for that!” the Cataroon growled.
“You got to catch me first,” she teased and took off once again.
This time he was in fast pursuit.
