Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie

My photo
I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

Our Christmas Card to You

For those of you not on other forms of social media (which can sometimes be unsociable, we know!) we wanted to be sure not to leave anyone out of our holiday wishes.

Here's our card. Lots of love to all!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and All Celebrations in Between!

Hi, everybody!

A very special holiday is wished for all who read my bloggie. I'm determined to make the New Year better in every way..more mice for me and you! More catnip, too! And, blessings..we don't want to forget Who's in charge..

From mom Julie: In the spirit of Christmas, I just want to share that it's been hard for us to blog. (I'm adding this paragraph after Tom's signing below). All of the old blogs signed by Tom I looked at just these past few days. Call me a sentimental old fool, but realizing he was gone all over again brought me to tears. Even though he has become the character in my books, it still doesn't fill that emptiness that he left behind. Each one of us does whatever it takes to cope with our loves, our losses and what life throws at us day to day. My offering to you is my creativity and stories that feature his clerical, feline lusciousness :) . I hope you enjoy..especially since they're so inexpensive..Tom would never want to be referred to as "cheap." Enjoy..okay, Tom, back to you: 

Tom here: If you have a Kindle or might get one for Christmas, here are a couple of options for you..books I came out with this past year. Easy, fun reads and I'm in them almost on every page!!

Mom Julie put them on holiday special for 99 cents until after Christmas. Feather was first for the bargain price, so I think that ends Christmas Day..but Dog Tags runs a little longer.

Be good, good friends. Hope Santa brings you lots of treats and all good things for your human family. Know you are loved.
