What is your latest release and what genre is it? Black Cat in the Shadows – poetry ; movie short script
Quick description: The cafe of the Black Cat, the famous Le Chat Noir of fin de siecle Paris, was the gathering place of bohemians, royalty and everyone in between – aristocrat to street walker. As well, the Black Cat was noted for its entertainment, innovation, and absinthe. It is the author’s hope that some of that essence of the Black Cat can be found within these pages.
