Goodreads asked Leigh A. Arrathoon:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Leigh A. Arrathoon I'm currently working on a book I love because it's about my favorite cat and is set in medieval France, ca. 1150. I have my Ph.D. in medieval literature, so I'm really enjoying doing the research for the book, which is about a little girl, who is sent as an oblate to a nearby abbey. When she grows up, she becomes the lady of a manor. That is the part I'm working on now. Through it all, her cat, who really captures the spirit of my Désirée, is there to bring her human love and joy. In the process, the cat also helps her to become a successful writer. In reality, my cat does this by sitting on my computer or the book I'm reading.
