Amazon 5* review of the new book-Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer

Can almost hear Chatty Cat telling her story

The next instalment of a lady who adopts a stray cat and how they spend their days together. Again just like the first book written by Suzan this book is filled with everything you should know before taking on a kitten or a fully grown cat. So much information from Suzan and also from Chatty Cat’s point of view. A must read for all ages whether you have a kitten/cat or are thinking of owning one or rather them owning you! Sit back and enjoy the story and the sketches and photographs , you will be thrilled.

It is called Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer.

Chatty Cat~Spring into Summer~draft FRONT cover

The second in the Chatty Cat series follows Chatty through spring and summer in her new home as she gradually learns to relax and enjoy her surroundings. “The sun has warmed up the ground and now the sun is shining on my tummy and making it nice and warm. It’s all quiet in the garden and I fall asleep. I am dreaming…” Life still holds a few surprises for Chatty, with new friends and new experiences. Chatty Cat is a real rescue cat in a real home and her adventures provide a useful guide to caring for your pet. It’s not just a manual – but it will help you look after your cat. It’s not just a story – but you can read it like one. It’s not just a children’s book – but children of all ages will love it, and so will adults. The author has a real knack for getting into Chatty Cat’s head and explaining her behaviour in ways that everyone can recognise.

Available in Paperback and ebook

My book tour of libraries is going really well and I’ve met some fabulous people.

I get asked many questions including the one, why do I write? And I tell them, I usually write because I have something to tell people.

A selection of workbooks for staff who work in social care.

I write these to give staff the knowledge on what they need to do to meet certain government standards.Workbooks

Chatty Cat: The First Six Months

I wrote this book to tell people how my rescue cat is settling in to her new home. I am now writing the second book, Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer.

Beyond My Control: Why the Health and Social Care System Need Not Have Failed My Mother

I wrote this to tell the story of how my late mother was let down by the Safeguarding team in social services, the nursing home where she lived, the hospital where my mother was admitted with two fractures and died three months later from blood poisoning, and the Commission of Social Care Inspection. All four agencies that have a paid duty of care to protect older, vulnerable people from poor practices, harm and abuse.

I also wrote the book to tell people what they could do if they were concerned about the care they or a relative/friend was receiving.

I have received many emails from readers who say that the book gave them the knowledge, strength and guidance to act upon their concerns.
