Praise for A Familiar Tail

"A special brew of magic, murder, mayhem...and one extraordinary cat."—National Bestselling Author Laurie Cass

“Anna is so genuinely likable, the dialogue so cleverly written, and the plot so compelling, that readers will enthusiastically follow her adventures and eagerly await their next chance to enter her world. Continual twists guarantee that readers will be as surprised by the truth as Anna, and the wit and confident writing by the author will cement her place on the list of must-read paranormal mystery series.”—Kings River Life Magazine
