Brightlingsea author publishes new collection of stories
1:00pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
A Brightlingsea writer has released a collection of stories based around the life of a Japanese bob-cat.
Jan Williams, author of Essex Folktales, has written a collection of stories called ‘An Amazing Storytelling Cat.’
The stories feature the life of Kiyoko, a Japanese Bob-cat who tells astonishing tales from all over the world. Far away in Japan, five lost casts listen to Kiyoko’s wondrous stories about fairies, ghosts, and monsters.
Illustrations for the stories have been done by the artists Simon Peecock from Brightlingsea and Charmaine McKissock from Wivenhoe.
Jan, who owns an elderly rescue tabby called Mrs Pushin, said: “There is nothing I love more than of the special friendship that develops from sitting and sharing short stories together, especially with a cat purring on your knee.”
An Amazing storytelling cat is available online for £7.99.
