Writing about pets and real life inspiration

I’m visiting The Snarkology as part of The Write Pet series. Here’s the beginning of the story…

In my first novel, To Hiss or to Kiss, the heroine communicates with animals telepathically. She has two cats, and one is based on my cat, Sundance. Unfortunately, we lost Sundance a year ago—and just a few weeks before the book released. My husband and I miss him terribly, but he will live on in my book in some of the mannerisms of Chloe’s cat Enoki. The book is dedicated to him. Enoki is a mainstay character in the next two books in my Hidden Lines series. <a href="In my first novel, To Hiss or to Kiss, the heroine communicates with animals telepathically.
