A horrifying look into what happens when nature is misunderstood and an old crone that harmed no one is now out for revenge.

In 1962 they thought she was dead, all they had to do was burn the old house down with her and those damnable cats in it and everything would be normal again. No more odd antics from the Crazy Cat Lady no more death. But what they didn't realize is there was much more to her relationship with her beloved cats than met the eye. Love, trust, and the bonds of a mother to her children all played a part to the insanity the town people thought raged within the crone's mind.

It's now 2018 and the stories have not ceased. Instead it seems the legend of the 'Crazy Cat Lady' have grown more horrifying than ever before prompting the local children to take a visit. Most have only come within a few feet of the old half burned house. They would stand, staring at the place, watching the creepy cats mill about the area, climbing along porch railings meowing plaintively. But three high school boys decide to take it a bit further one night which begins a horrifying look into what happens when nature is misunderstood and an old crone that harmed no one is now out for revenge.


Q: Dress up or dress down?

A: Down, I want to be comfortable. I hate feeling all itchy and scratchy. I don’t believe in dress clothes. Ew.

Q: Dine in or dine out?

A: Dine in, my daughter and myself love to eat out every now and then but to be honest we love eating at home more and even if we do get food from a restaurant we usually do take out so we can eat in the comfort of our own home.

Q: Coffee or Tea?
A: Tea! I have a cup every night before bed. The chamomile and lavendar help me sleep.

Q: How do you feel about exercise?
A: Ew! What’s that? I hate exercise but I feel I get plenty. I go out and walk every day but anything more detailed is not for me.

Q: Texting, love it or hate it?

A: Hate it! I’d much rather speak to someone in person or on the phone talking than texting. It’s just aggravating!


Q: Which holiday celebrations do you like to incorporate into your stories and why?
A: Halloween! Because I do horror mostly. I haven’t done anything with any other holidays in it yet.

Q: Generally speaking, is your work based on real life experience? If it's not would you want it to be?
A: Not yet, but I do have a direction I’m going to take where I someday write my own life story, but my life is far from over yet so we’re going to wait until we’ve become completely settled because you never know what could happen.

Q: How long does it take you to create a novel?

A: One I’m writing now besides Crazy Cat Lady has taken seven years. I’m hoping to finish it next after this one.

Q: Do you like to read the genre that you write?

A: Yes! It always helps me get new ideas, not taking any from the book I’m reading of course, but it always helps me hone my craft because it gets my imagination churning.


Q: How can we find you? Do you have a web page, FaceBook page or any buy links?
A: Yes, I do. Here are the links.



Chapter Three
At first as the boys entered everything seemed pretty normal. For the house being as old as it was, the floor was quite sturdy and Tommy actually relaxed a little. He still didn’t want to go any further though so he spoke up. “Hey man, Jerry… uh, I think this is far enough, let’s take the picture and get the hell out of here.” Jerry turned around and shined his flashlight right in Tommy’s face. “Fine, wuss puss.” He reached to get his phone out of his pocket and beckoned Tommy over to stand beside him. Jerry held the phone up ‘selfie style’ and snapped the picture. Then they started to head back toward the front door. They had made it only mid way what must have been the living room at one time when they heard an awful den coming from the stairs and before either of them could say anything the cats were upon them.

They ranged in all sizes, some were small, some large and some medium but the claws and teeth were completely uncommon. They tore at the two boys ripping their jackets, t-shirts and pants to shreds. Skin came away in chunks and strips, the cats buried their maws into the large holes they made. Somehow Tommy had struggled to his feet and ran headlong for the door, several cats clinging to him. Jerry’s phone had long been discarded and lay in a puddle of blood on the floor. He’d stopped making noise long ago. There were no screams left as his tongue and part of his jaw had already been eaten away and the cats now had him on his back their claws working through his stomach to get at intestines and tender organs. His larynx had been ripped out and the last effort he made to scream came as a gurgle as he drowned in his own blood.

Tommy saw the car’s headlights and started to crawl toward them but just as soon as he thought Travis had seen him the car turned and sped away. He lay there now on his stomach the cats from the house joined by others outside. They jumped on his back and head, ripping and tearing, chewing flesh as they went. There was no doubt these cats had not been fed in a very long time, or so one would think, but they would be wrong. The last thing Tommy saw… or thought he saw was a hunched old woman standing at the door grinning at him. It seemed she was laughing silently or was it all just a dream? He would never know… would anyone? His vision began to fade; at least the pain was gone. His body had begun the process of shut down and he would make a very fine feast indeed. The cats began to move away and back into the house, some slinking off into the edge of the woods that bordered the house on the opposite side of the field… they moved oddly, their movements jerky and awkward, not like true cats at all. They’d be back… tomorrow night, and the next waiting for more to come.
