Katrina Manningabout this book: Set in Menomonee Falls, WI, "Marmalade's Exciting Tail" is a modern story of Claire Young, a web developer who recently broke up with her ex-fiance. Planning for a fresh start, she starts packing to move to another city for an intriguing job offer when her cat escapes and runs away. Claire cannot imagine losing her furry best friend, so she does the first thing that comes to mind—she asks her ex-fiance Kirk, to assist her in the heart-wrenching search. What happens next is a series of flashbacks, questions and a surprise ending that will leave you wondering the meaning of it all.
The book is special to me because I've lived in many cities throughout my life. There are some parallels within the story to my own experiences, such as understanding the stress that comes along with a move, owning a cat and yes, I have experienced a breakup. That is mostly where the similarities end though. Nonetheless, I wanted to put something out there that would give every reader hope.
I made adorable Marmalade the center of my book because I knew that I wanted to make a book that most anyone could read. Being a cat owner and cat lover myself, it seemed a natural fit. My cat is the inspiration after all.
It was my paternal grandmother who first planted the book writing seed. When I was in high school, she had told me several times that I could write a good book. Now that I have been writing for over seven years, it was just a matter of finding a story I felt comfortable telling. What boosted my confidence even more was participating in Nanowrimo. After that, I eventually set a goal and met my objective. Now, I'm working on the second book in the series!
