Stuff you probably didn’t know about my books: Alt’s Name

April 20, 2011

Alt’s name came from a cat I used to have. His name was Alton. I couldn’t resist; I was at the SPCA one day, checking out dogs and cats when this Air Force couple walked up and asked if I was looking for a cat. I said no. They said that they couldn’t bring him on their change of station, so they would be giving him back to the SPCA where they got him. So I took him.

What is unique about Alton is that he had been hit in the head with a hammer by their two-year-old son (he was just playing) and as a result, Alton could often be seen staring off into space. The choice was clear.
