A Happy Meewww Year to everyone from me, Roxie. Mom has decided to take a break from the blogosphere this week. She’s made an early New Year’s resolution to get the first draft of her mystery completed and is trying to avoid distractions. I’ve decided to help by getting rid of her main distraction. I … More Roxie’s Resolution
During the first week in December, Charley and I went on another adventure with our friends Jack and Jean. We took a pleasant train ride from our local Kingston Station to Penn Station in New York and became part of the masses that flock to the Big Apple every year at this time.

I’m a late bloomer. Very late! At age 65, I wrote a story featuring a tabby kitten named ZuZu, born in a barn at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I liked it so much I wrote more stories set in the Berkshires and added in lots of farm animals and an … More Claremary P. Sweeney, RI’s Late-Blooming Author
Hi! Roxie here with the latest update on me and my world. Things are much more organized around the house now that the kitchen is painted and everything has been put back in place.

Meow! It’s Roxie here. Dad and Mom are out on another date night and I’m stuck here babysitting for ZuZu, aka “Mommy’s Widdle Snookums Puss”.

I feel I owe you a sincere apology for my rude and unacceptable behavior. (Mom wrote these first sentences to get me started. ) I’m still not quite sure what I … More The Other Cat – Apology to a Dinner Guest

It’s for my Mom’s newest blog posts. About me! “Wait a minute! You get out of here, ZuZu! I’m the oldest and I’m in … More International Cat Day!!!!!!!!!
For those of you who read my last blog post, “The Other Cat” you are familiar with Roxie. She is the one who does not have a book series.

They are a loyal audience. So, today I’m writing just for them. Often, people who know … More The Other Cat
