Mama also met Annie Reed at a writing conference. And Kris’ is right when she talks about how good of a writer Annie is!
Annie’s story in the bundle is “The Night Mischief Became a Real Cat”.
Here is a brief blurb:
Mischief never expected to encounter a shadow creature.
Especially not on the night her wings fell off and she became a real cat.
She just wants to find a home where she belongs. Instead, Mischief runs into the biggest shadow creature she’s ever seen. A creature that can transform itself under the light of the full moon into something solid and dangerous and hungry.
Mischief comes from a long line of feline fey. Proud hunters who protect the world from shadow creatures who stalk the unwary. But Mischief’s no longer fey—she’s just a cat.
One very determined cat.
This isn’t Annie’s only cat related story. She has a story called “Life, With Cats” in an anthology called A Quiet Shelter. It’s a charity anthology benefiting Friends of Homeless Animals rescue organization. Annie has a number of other cat stories, but she likes this one because the anthology benefits cats.
Here is a bit more about Annie:
