Fifth Life of the Catwoman

Fifth Life of the Catwoman Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Catwoman is on her fifth life. She has survived witch hunts, ignorance, and poverty. And now, she seeks refuge amidst the company of fifty cats on her own private oasis, a mirage. But when a stranger named Angelo enters her isolated world, Kat is forced to face her fear. Sweetly and subtly, he courts and coaxes her back into the real world, convincing her to become a teacher of history. And Kat, ready to embrace this new struggle, falls hopelessly in love with life, with teaching, and with Angelo.

But when tragedy strikes and the prejudice that sparked the witch hunts of her past resurfaces, what will become of the woman who is "too well-liked by cats?"

About the Author

While majoring in education and minoring in music at the University of New Mexico, Kathleen Dexter worked as a ghostwriter and producer for a children's storytelling program on KUNM (Albuquerque), an affiliate of NPR. This eventually led her to found her own company, Zephyr Tapes and Books, which specializes in stories from the southwest. She worked for fifteen years in the ?movie industry circus? on various film projects while completing her master's degree in psychology. She began writing fiction when one of her professors commented that ?the real students of human nature aren't psychologists ? they're novelists.?
