Author Bio:I live and write in the Indianapolis area. After earning a PhD in Computer Science in 2002 and teaching and researching for seven years, I’ve returned to the childhood dream of becoming an author. I better do it now because I won’t get a third life. Behind me, I have a ton of academic experience and have written about twenty extremely boring papers on query languages and such, for example this one in the ACM Transactions on Databases. (That’s a mouthful.) Now, I write in the mystery/thriller/suspense genres and sometimes science fiction. I know for some people databases would be the more beloved of the options, but for me, I finally realized that my heart wasn’t in it. So I took up a second life, as a self-published fiction author. Online, I do the Writer Cy cartoon series about the (mis)adventures of researching, writing, and self-publishing in today’s shifting climate. I also love to design and create my own covers using GIMP.
MY THOUGHTS -
Well this was a fun read! I have always loved "shape shifter" books, but not the dark scary ones. I like the light fun ones, and that's what this was! It was fun, suspenseful, and creative!
The character development was very well put together. I loved PJ. I liked how the story took shape, how it started out with something small and the mystery grew into something much more serious as the book went on.
I am very much a cat person. I would love to turn into a cat at night! This reminded me of Cat Woman (the comic) and movie with Halle Berry. Only in that she was a super hero and here - PJ is not a super hero, she is just a normal person who happens to be a reporter turning into a cat looking to catch a story. She was very real to me in the book. She seemed like someone I could be friends with.
I liked the ending and how it left room for a sequel???? Maybe? I know I would like one. I want to find out what happens to the niece! Well I guess you will have to read the book to know what I mean!
This is my second book by this author and I am already a fan! I know I will be reading all her future books. Cy Wyss makes reading Mysteries fun!
