NOTE: The prints, panels, mini canvases & other gifts will be hand-embellished with touches of 3D acrylic iridescent & sparkle. If you DO NOT prefer hand-embellishing, please let me know.
Original paintings were done with watercolors, gouache and colored pencil, with tiny touches of computer enhancing magic.
Told in "1st & 2nd person" mode, the story celebrates the love a human has for her pet. For this book, she is our storyteller.
As an animal lover, I have now dedicated two of my books to animal rescuers, true heroes, this one being the second. You guys rock.
The cat in this story has been part of the print series for a while now, with and without the correlating verses. Now that the story and all the artwork is completed, the book has just gone into production.
I have written and illustrated a good number of published picture books, some award-winners for art and literature. Rewards to supporters will include some of them.

It all comes from my studio and gallery in Dana Point, California. http://bestfriendsartgallery.com/
Telling a story through written words (especially verse) and images is my favorite way to communicate. It's joyful... and joyful to see others enjoy it, too.
I now have indoor cats only, but in years past, I experienced the sorrow of a cat disappearing... although thankfully, my cat came back. After all those days during which I worried and aged at a furious rate, she just showed up one day. But do you think she told me where she'd been all those long days??? Hence the book's title.
At the end of chapter 4, the story's mood shifts...
When one day the cat goes missing, the saddened storyteller experiences anxiety regarding one possibility and imagines where her cat could be...
This is just one of the scenes of our storyteller's wonderment... but you saw a lot of them in the video.
As chapter 6 steers us back to Earth and reality, our storyteller waits and wonders...
and wonders and hopes...
And for what happens next in "A Cat Never Tells", here in KickStarter, there is no spoiler alert because in this case, it's the author that never tells... the ending, that is. This author only hopes that you will enjoy, and of course, the story that leads up to it.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and and if you've made it this far, I hope you will consider backing this project. I look forward to getting the gift book "A Cat Never Tells" as well as any requested rewards into your hands.
All best wishes, purrs & nose kisses!

Risks and challenges
Work for the book is completed and is now in production. I have much experience with this kind of project, beginning with the picture books I wrote and illustrated with publishers. More recently I published two books myself, designing them both my way, flap to flap, and was very pleased with the result.
As for added reward items, there's been a lot of practice there, too, in constantly making them for my gallery and shows. So unless funds aren't met here in KickStarter, I am confident that the project will be a success and rewards fulfilled to satisfaction.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
