About The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey

Combining a warm, humorous, and conversational style of writing with stunning photos and charming artwork, readers are immediately immersed into the world of Zee, a lovable male Maine Coon cat, and Zoey, a high-spirited female Bengal cat, as they share their amazing relationship and bond that formed between the two of them in The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey. What makes this story so compelling, is that the author narrates the journey of the cats through the personal trials and tribulations of her own life. Readers will easily be able to relate to the many moments the author shares and her spot on accuracy in understanding the many nuances of a cat is so realistic, one might think the author was a cat herself!  You will be certain to smile and laugh on more than one occasion as you share this incredible journey with Zee and Zoey and learn the ultimate message they teach us – to embrace the ordinary in life and dare to make it extraordinary.

Book Excerpt:

“Imagine, if you would, a world of love at first sight, where pigs do fly, where carpets are meant for magical rides, where empty boxes are transformed to magnificent castles and forts and a door becomes the gateway to the unlimited possibility of a charming and enchanted garden filled with endless adventure and intrigue. That, my dear readers, is the looking glass world of Zee and Zoey and this is their journey of a shared life, where everyday, the merest of ordinary becomes the possibility of extraordinary in their minds eye.
Zee is my lovable male Maine Coon cat and Zoey my female wild-child leopard inspired Bengal cat who fell madly, deeply in love. Zee was sharing his home with his two humans – myself and my fiancé, Dan, as well as a dog and two other cats before being introduced to Zoey for the first time, and was, in his opinion, leading a rather boring and mundane life. Zoey came unsuspectingly into his world as a tiny slip of a thing and stole his heart from the very beginning. Her youth and exuberance was contagious and she celebrated everything with gusto and passion. Nothing was ordinary to her and Zee came to follow in her example as they explored life together, completely inseparable, reveling in every extraordinary moment…”
