Bio: As a lonely black cat cast aside into the lonely and cruel night, Osiris was rescued from a busy
The truth, Osiris. Are you the boss of Bev Walton-Porter?
Of course! I’m a cat! I’m Lord and Master of ALL I survey! Silly human. *tsk tsk*! You know, she thinks differently, but what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her. I’ve got her wrapped around my furry little paw, and she loves it! *maniacal meow*
What type of books does your human mom write?
She has a split writing personality, really. The woman can’t decide if she wants to stick with nonfiction or fiction. Most of the time she plays it safe (or so I think) with nonfiction (Sun Signs for Writers and The Complete Writer: A Guide To Tapping Your Full Potential), but every now and then she lets her fiction goddess out to play. I like her best when she writes those hot love scenes in her romance books (Mending Fences and Hidden Fire). She writes those under a pen name (and her birth name) Star Ferris. She gets these mischievous, naughty looks on her face when she writes those “heaving bosom”-type of books!
How long does she work each day on a book and ignores you?
Is there a number THAT big? Just kidding. Seriously, she’s pretty chill about that type of thing. She usually lets me sit on the desk next to her while she’s typing away. When she’s puzzling over something or simply musing (daydreaming/brainstorming), she reaches over the scratches me behind the ears (LOVE IT!) or gives me a kitty back/shoulder massage (LOVE IT EVEN MORE!)
What do you do for amusement while Bev pounds at the computer all day? It must be bad for your self esteem to be ignored like that.
I terrorize the oldest cat, Kiki, who’s turning 18 on March 16th. When I get finished with that, I chase
I like to stare at my mom while she writes to make her feel guilty. What do you do to annoy Bev? Give my pet readers some evil ideas.
Sometimes, when I get incredibly impatient, I nudge my way in front of her – nose first – and plop down between her and the keyboard. That’s my way of saying, “Hey, can I get some attention here?” after she’s ignored me for far too long. This move generally gives her the vapors and causes her to grouse quite a bit. After all, I’m a 17-lb cat, so when I plop down between her and the computer keyboard, I usually get half of my hefty, sexy cat body on part of her keyboard, which sometimes accidentally erases her carefully crafted words, sentences and paragraphs or adds to them with assorted nonsensical characters and marks. This, of course, makes my Lady Author very cross, and she usually scootches my behind off the desk and keyboard with a cacophony of curse words and bothering sighs. I take it all in stride because I know I “let” her push me off, but I WILL be back again. Oh yes I will *insert nefarious, shifty-eyed glance at audience*
Again, I own her. OH YES I DO! =^-^=
(psychotic laugh) HA, HA, HA, HA, HA.....! Keep up the good work, Osiris!
