Hello! I'm the cartoonist behind 'Breaking Cat News!' I enjoy illustrating, cartooning, baking, antique shops, old-timey detective shows, and anything with avocados. Wife, mother, cat lover. One day I hope to be a little old lady who rides around town on her bicycle solving mysteries.

    This is firm proof that I benefited greatly from an editor when BCN rolled around, lol!

    The ones I had were not, but dang, that sounds like a solidly good third version!

    It is indeed a real recipe! I bake mine from my Opa’s recipe, it calls for apples, flour, sugar, walnuts and comes out a bit like a bread. Last year our dear friend Stephen brought over a proper Swiss Apple Cake his friend made and it put mine to shame (sorry Opa!) Incredibly delicate, light, with thin slices of Apple over the top and the addition of a sprinkle of powdered sugar…

    And now I am not quite sure what Swiss Apple Cake is truly supposed to be or taste like—but I’ve never met one I didn’t like!

    My Opa was an incredible storyteller, and he decided to tell me the Monkey’s Paw in the growing dim of a thunderstorm late one afternoon. I still remember sitting on the floor of the living room, just able to see him on the couch, as his voice grew quiet and then booming and quiet again. When the son returned with a KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK (My Opa’s fist discreetly knocking on the wall) I about jumped out of my skin! He told us many stories growing up, but ‘The Monkey’s Paw’, ‘Rumpelstiltskin’, and a Chinese fairy tale about a beautiful maiden and her carp friend (much like Cinderella and the fairy godmother) were repeated favorites. He also told me the entirety of Jane Eyre over several visits when I was 9-10. Later when I read the book, I realized he had spoken many passages word for word from memory. He was a terrific grandfather, I was very lucky to have him.

    Officially, I feel like I should clarify: I write dialogue conversationally, and to reflect who is speaking. I don’t have every character speak in perfect grammar. It would sound stiff if I did. I don’t believe Morbis would make the effort. He would be an entirely different sort of character if he thought before he spoke or followed proper speech rules (or knew them to begin with). Salem might! But not Morbis. I don’t think much into grammatical or proper speech rules when writing for Morbis, Offal, or Ivan.

    (If anyone out there reads Breaking Cat News, Elvis and Sophie are intentionally written with proper speech in mind. Lupin, for example, is not, he is sometimes written with new personal idioms or slang thrown in.)

    I make plenty of actual mistakes too! I think Swan Eaters has already had a couple of spelling errors embarrassingly (apologies!) but I wanted to clarify this, as it will come up again and again in dialogue throughout all of my writing. Some characters will not speak as well as others. I feel like it’d be weird if they did. I apologize if it can feel like nails on a chalkboard to some folks (I get where it could!) and I hope they’ll understand where and why I give certain characters more thought when it comes to proper speech than others.

    It is meant to be several reviewing sites, but it most closely focused on Yelp and FB business reviews. :)
