I'm passionate about books, writing, libraries and cats, all central to my first novel, GUARDIAN CATS.

My hope is that my writing will be both entertaining and thought-provoking.

Author of GUARDIAN CATS AND THE LOST BOOKS OF ALEXANDRIA. A blend of magical realism and legendary historical events, Guardian Cats is a book about power, seen through the eyes of cats.

What? You want another poem?
Quickly please. I don't have a lot of time but I need to stay in touch.

Poems take slowing down,
slow deep breathing.
Nothing harder than doing nothing.
How boring it sounds and besides I need to start a load of laundry. 

Just one deep breathe. You can manage that.

Over there...a glimpse of the ocean
behind a glass wall.

Another slow breath. Ancient waves reach toward me

The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
“There," she said. She rocked him back and forth. "There, you foolish, beautiful boy who wants to change the world. There, there. And who could keep from loving you? Who could keep from loving a boy so brave and true?”

When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro
“Perhaps there are those who are able to go about their lives unfettered by such concerns. But for those like us, our fate is to face the world as orphans, chasing through long years the shadows of vanished parents. There is nothing for it but to try and see through our missions to the end, as best we can, for until we do so, we will be permitted no calm.”
Kazuo Ishiguro

“Marco could not have known about the mystical effect of a full moon on cats and books left on their own in the library. Not until he saw the lines breathe, the words unveiled.”
Rahma Krambo, Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria

“Empty space eventually fills up with something. A void, cultivated in the aftermath of misfortune, begins to attract the wrong kind of attention. Marco knew it was time to leave when disagreeable spirits started roaming freely through the house, as if they owned the place.”
Rahma Krambo, Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria

“In the beginning, the taste of power is sweet, savored on the tongue, like fine wine. It whispers promises in your ear and pretends to be your friend. It is easy to become addicted to this feeling.”
Rahma Krambo, Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria
