From Babe, Watership Down and Animal Farm to Aristacats, Lady and the Tramp and Charlottes Webb animals have been popular in both books and films. My guest today has produced a book and created a character that I’m sure will join that group of much loved literary heroes.
Author Jacque Heebner is a Los Angeles socialite, designer, animal rights activist and former Daily News journalist who has taken her love of cats and I might add dogs, and shaped it into long awaited celebrity-endorsed murder mystery novel… “First Person Cat”.
Set in the surreal world of Beverly Hills power, money and celebrity, the book is written from the point of view of Tiffany, a humanesque diva-feline brought up on caviar, Perrier, mansions and an acute appreciation of diamonds.
Tiffany or “Tiff to her close friends, a regal Tortoise-shell Persian, is a witnesses to the murder of her owner-mother, a Cher-like rock star with two hot daughters, at her home in Beverly Hills. Tiffany seems to smell the murderer’s thoughts and hear human words. By what creative methods can she expose the person who murdered her human mother and reveal this to investigators?”
You’ll need to read the book for that answer…
During the show Jacque not only shared the origins of the book and how it developed into the success it is today, but also many enjoyable stories and anecdotes mixed into what was a really enjoyable and much too short thirty minute show.
Jacque proved a delightful and entertaining a guest as her book “First Person Cat” is to read. So sit back and listen to today’s “A Book and a Chat with Jacque Heebner”
