About the Author: Pat Frayne is the award-winning author of Topaz the Conjure Cat Books for middle-grade kids who love cats, fairies, and high adventure. This is a series about a unique breed of cat endowed with a paranormal power. However, this power must be taught and practiced to be perfected. Orphaned at a young age and as the last of his kind, Topaz struggles to learn how to summon this power and how to wield it beyond the basics he learned in his early years. It's up to him as a Yellow Conjure Cat to uphold the legacy of his breed, to protect his king, his kingdom, and its inhabitants.
These fast-paced adventure fantasies are for parents and children alike. Although Frayne's books were written wholly for the reader's entertainment, the

My solution is to go for a walk, climb a few hills, breath in the fresh air and listen to the birds. Sometimes it may help to meditate, or simply take a short nap.
One thing I try not to do is stay away from my computer too, too long.(less)

“Favorite Quotations.
I speak my mind because it hurts to bite my tongue.
The worth of a book is measured by what you carry away from it.
It's not over till it's over.
Imagination is everything.
All life is an experiment.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly.”
Pat Frayne, Tales of Topaz the Conjure Cat: Part I Topaz and the Evil Wizard & Part II Topaz and the Plum-Gista Stone

“The mind is not a vessel that needs filling but wood that needs igniting."

Piutarch”
Pat Frayne, Tales of Topaz the Conjure Cat: Part I Topaz and the Evil Wizard & Part II Topaz and the Plum-Gista Stone

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Bernard M. Baruch

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“If you take a book with you on a journey," Mo had said when he put the first one in her box, "an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it... yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”
Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

Pat Frayne Hi Pat, Hi Kris, I'm getting a Kindle for Christmas. So, I'll finally be able to relax and read and review some books. So much to do with marketing, writing, reading and keeping up with friends. It's pretty overwhelming at times. I don't know how you all find time to blog. Have another paperback coming out soon and need to find a less time consuming, more effective way to promote the books.
