The following excerpts are from Vic DiGenti’s website www.windrusher.com. This cat loving author will be at the Festival of Reading.
“Evanne, my wife, and I have done our part to help the overpopulation problem by rescuing unwanted and abandoned cats. "They've taken to knocking on our door at dusk," I once wrote in one of my columns, "with only a few pitiful belongings and a crudely printed note pinned to their furry pajamas begging us to take them in."
“I may have exaggerated a bit, but in a few short years we went from a fairly sane, pet-free existence, to a household of loveable furballs and our world was never the same.”
“Today, we share our home with seven cats ranging from sweet and shy Sasha to playful Sergio, from weird and wacky Gus to Alpha Cat Duke. Then there's Sofi who likes to sit on my lap as I write and critique my work.”
Windrusher and the Trail of Fire
Separated from his caretakers and relocated to a rural cat rescue agency called Precious Friends Cat Sanctuary, Windrusher learns his destiny is linked to a mythical cat from legendary times. Can this dream-link protect him and the other cats standing in the way of a ruthless developer? Windrusher soon finds there is no sanctuary as he must battle conniving humans, a raging wildfire, and save two hundred other lives before he can save his own.
“DiGenti invites the reader into a rich and secret feline world, an experience that will change and enhance all you know, or thought you knew, about cats." ~Shirley Rousseau Murphy, author of Cat Pay the Devil
