While Boomer Muse contains no cats, don’t be fooled. Cats are my life. They act as my creative muse, bread and butter as a holistic cat behaviorist, an award-winning writer/photographer and speaker. In 2011, I founded the premier online magazine Cat Wisdom 101 where the mandate is to enlighten and entertain cat lovers everywhere.
As a passionate advocate for cats, I founded the Toronto-based Annex Cat Rescue in 1997 and volunteer at New Rochelle Humane Society. I’m active in social media pet advocacy campaigns. In addition to blogging at Cat Wisdom 101, I contribute to Petfinder.com, Pet360.com, Catster.com, Nordic Spotlight.com and The Huffington Post. I’m a professional member of the Cat Writers’ Association and a recipient of the Muse Medallion for photography in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
In terms of books my agent currently is pitching a book on holistic pet loss and grieving. I’m working on another cat-related book but have written a screenplay and novel containing zero cats. As a Canadian ex-pat, I happily live in a rambling, antique farmhouse in leafy Westchester County, N.Y. with a documentarian husband and a fluctuating number of feline muses.
