With the recent release of the first book in my Clockwork Calico series, I thought it fitting to post about the cats who inspired main character Cali.
This is Pie. She’s the main inspiration for Cali. She was the first cat I ever had after moving away from my parents’ home to attend college. I was delighted when my landlord told me I was allowed to have a cat. Living alone for the first time was quite a change for me, since I grew up in a household with several children. So inviting Pie into my life was a welcome relief. She provided companionship at a time when I needed it most.
