Ruth J. Hartman spends her days herding cats, and her nights spinning tales that make you smile. She, her husband, and their cats love to spend time curled up in their recliners watching old Cary Grant movies. Well, the cats sit in the people's recliners. Not that the cats couldn't get their own furniture. They just choose to shed on someone else's.

Ruth, a left-handed, cat-herding, farmhouse-dwelling romance writer uses her goofy sense of humor as she writes tales of lovable, klutzy women and the men who adore them. Ruth's husband and best friend, Garry, reads her manuscripts, rolls his eyes at her weird story ideas, and loves her in spite of her penchant for insisting all of her books have at least one cat in them.

Hairballs and Homicide by Ruth J. Hartman
"This was a pleasantly light, somewhat humorous book. It's puurr-fect for cat lovers, with a beautiful murder-mystery and potential romance all tucked away in one spot. And, one could say, the hero is a CAT!!"
