Publisher Comments:

Budgeron is struggling mightily to write the great ferret novel, a story so rich, so finely wrought, it will set the world of ferret literature on its tail. By day, he writes adventure stories for kits' magazines. By night, he lights the Lamp of Wisdom and calls forth Count Urbain de Rothskit, hero of the massive volume, "Where Ferrets Walk." After a near-perfect first sentence, Budgeron sighs in his tiny attic writing room and waits for the second to come.

Downstairs, a page-turner romance tumbles effortlessly from the keyboard of Budgeron's mate, Danielle. A pawdicurist who decides to write for fun, Danielle never expected her first page would explode with Veronique Sibhoan Ferret, a willful, naughty, mesmerizing animal who would one day bewitch millions of readers.

Budgeron and Danielle are aspiring writer ferrets following their calling through the quiet rooms where stories are born, past the mailbox and rejection slips and finally into the white hot world of big-time book publishing. In the end, each finds success writing for the one heart they must truly please: their own.

"Writer Ferrets: Chasing the Muse" is a tale about the search for what really matters in life; the struggle to free our inner voice; the pursuit of a dream against significant odds and the need to love and be loved by a like-minded spirit.

Grace Maris, May 30, 2009 (view all comments by Grace Maris)
Writer Ferrets Chasing the Muse by Richard Bach -- This is an absolutely wonderful story about a ferret who wants to write the 'GREAT NOVEL' and what he finds out about himself and his own true self. A part of The Ferret Chronicles, the book can stand by itself as its own story and fits intrinsically into the 5 story series which is contained in the one book - Curious Lives. (This story set is my favourite of all that Richard Bach has written.)
