A human spirit banished to the body of a cat.
Cat Sidhe delivers epic fantasy from a cat’s eye view and a journey rife with predators.
Merliss lives with the local cunning man and is not very impressed with the latest apprentice, but she does what she can to train Saerwynn.
On a routine venture to gather herbs, Merliss and Saerwynn encounter a strange creature on the moor. It walks upright. It talks. And it looks like an oversized cat, but as Merliss can attest, it doesn’t smell like a cat.
The creature is a cat sidhe–a witch shifted one too many times into a cat shape. The sidhe is seeking slaves, anyone with opposable thumbs. Bones and blood are also in its sights. It soon has Saerwynn in its power and vanishes with the hapless apprentice through a portal.
Merliss faces a tough decision. Go after the sidhe and Saerwynn through the portal or warn the cunning man about the new menace afoot on the moor?
How long until Saerwynn’s blood is powering the sidhe’s malevolent magic?
But Saerwynn isn’t the only one in danger. The situation on the moor is far more dire than Merliss and her friends could have imagined.
As one reviewer writes, Cat Sidhe is “a big tale set against a small background, with an epic journey.”

What was your inspiration for this book?
My family and I adopted a stray cat off the street. She was starving and tried to enter our house. We nursed the charcoal-gray cat back to health and found her to be incredibly sweet and good-natured. Smokey turned out to be a very old cat. She was missing a couple teeth, had a notch in one ear, and one eye set back farther than the other. Smokey was the inspiration for Merliss.
Why did you decide to produce an audiobook?
I love audiobooks. They're a different market to reach a new group of readers.
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
I chose the reader based on a sample reading of sections of the book. When I heard Jannie Meisberger's voice, I knew she would be the perfect narrator for The Merliss Tales.
