So sorry for the delay-by-a-day folks, but technical issues plague us all sometimes… Today’s post is an excerpt from a delightful author I have had the pleasure to “meet” online. Teehee – I love that I get to “meet” people regularly now, from the privacy of my own home. Sometimes the online world fascinates me… (Of course sometimes it freaks me right out, but that’s a conversation for another day.) Today, let’s focus on the good stuff – the excerpt from Lea Ryan! Be sure to check back next week for another guest post from Lea on writing – and for the chance to win your very own copy of Lair of the White Wyrm!

By Lea Ryan
Sometimes when you run from your problems, they follow you.

If you’re not up on the whole Kiwi-the-Cat thing, check out Alynn’s review for a good synopsis of the Kiwi-universe. In a very tiny nutshell, Kiwi is the pet of two children (Amy and James) – when she’s in this world. In HER world, Cat City, she is a bit of a detective and the two children (known as Ames and Jimster there) are rather like her pets – they help her solve mysteries. In this, book two of the Kiwi series, the mystery is to figure out what happened to all of the Cat City magic.
