“Harry here and for the next couple of weeks, I’m going to introduce you to the four most important characters in The Jamaican Mission. Today, we have Bobby and Sox. These brothers are tuxes who are almost identical except for the goatee that Sox sports. Let’s get to know a little bit about them.”

Harry: “Hi, boys, and welcome to my blog.”

Bobby and Sox: (in unison) “Hello, Harry!” 

(Sox looks around with eyes wide with amazement.)

Harry: “Now that The Jamaican Mission is complete, and you are about to become famous, how do you feel?”

Bobby: (steps in front of Sox and clears his throat) “I don’t know about Sox, but I’m excited. [puffs out his chest] I want the world to see just how much more helpful to the mission I was than Sox.”

(Bobby smirks at Sox, and Sox sticks his tongue out at him. Bobby looks proudly at Harry. Harry’s look told him that perhaps he had gone too far.)

Harry: (clearing his throat ) “Yes, well…” (Harry’s demeanor softened when he looked at Sox) “How about you, Sox? How do you feel?”

Sox: (looking forlorn) “I’m sad that the mission is over.”

Harry: (moved to Sox’s side and laid a comforting paw on his shoulder) “There will be others, I’m sure. After all, a cat’s work is never done.” (Harry dropped his paw and steps back behind the microphone)

“So, tell us, Bobby…what was your favorite part of the mission?”

Bobby: “My favorite part was when you chose me.”

Harry:  (nods his head) “How about you, Sox?”

Sox: (pouting) “He took my answer.”

(Bobby rolls his eyes)

Harry: (chuckles) “That’s okay. You both can have the same answer, Sox.”

(Harry clears his throat again) “So, boys, what’s next?”

Sox: (This time it was Sox who puffs out his chest) “As you know, Luna put me in charge of the Beach Gang. I have big shoes to fill. After all, Luna was a great leader.”

Bobby: “Yeah, and I get to be Sox’s co-leader.”

Harry: “Well, it sounds like you guys have it all mapped out. Good luck, and thank you for joining us today.” 

(Bobby and Sox both raised their paws to Harry as a salute and trotted off the stage)

Harry: (turns back toward the microphone) “And thank you, folks, at home for coming. I hope that you have enjoyed Bobby and Sox. Next time, I’ll have Savanna, the dog.

Until then, I want to remind you that my first book, The Legend of the Pink Diamond, is on sale on Amazon, where you can also pre-order The Jamaican Mission. So long, everybody.”

Harry the Wonder Cat: The Jamaican Mission

Those of you who have heard about Harry’s new book know that it is set in Jamaica. In The Jamaican Mission, which is coming April 21st, Harry goes on vacation with his two roommates and solves a mysterious murder that happened a century ago.

Since he has to leave his gang behind at Harrot Reef, he finds a new gang that is led by a spunky little cat called Luna. Like the gang at home, this beach gang has several members in it, but when Harry calls for volunteers, only Luna and two brothers, Bobby and Sox, step forward.

Later Bobby brings in Savanna, the neighborhood dog. Now those of you who read Harry’s first book, The Legend of the Pink Diamond, know he has no use for dogs. However, Savanna proved herself invaluable and Harry had to rethink his opinion.

Will Harry and the Beach Gang solve the murder that happened so long ago? You’ll have to read the book to see.

Harry was based on my first cat, Monkeyface, but his physical attributes were from my imagination. The other cats and the dog are real and chosen from my Facebook community page, Kitty Tales.

While writing this book, I found myself laughing in some parts and crying in others. I visited Jamaica years ago, and I reminisced as I researched the beautiful island. I hope you enjoy reading The Jamaican Mission as much as I enjoyed writing it.
