An inspiration to Cats everywhere

Feline Times

The inspiration for writing the Tales from Cat Town series of children’s books came out of three differences instances.

The 1st Just sitting in Cat Town watching the antics of the Cats whether they were Feral or Domesticated their reactions were fascinating. My imagination ran wild. Tamed by the fact both groups had one thing in
common both groups were Cats.

The 2nd I grew up in the back Streets of Walton Liverpool. Where I spent a considerable amount of time prowling along the back walls of the alleys. (Called Jiggers in Liverpool) …. Yes, you guested it with mostly only Cats to keep me company. So, I would watch them combat different obstacles they would be confronted with…. I would try to copy many cuts and bruises later I had some success…. Which would fuel my interest in later years of Free running.

The 3rd The Cat Town team put a camara trap in different locations in Cat Town. It had a night vision option … So as soon as the images started to come in it was the trigger. Story lines started to fly out of my head. With a combination of the above instances, they just kept coming. The last count 24 stories with many new characters and adventures already penned. I hope you enjoy The Tales rom Cat Town book series. Giving you the inspiration to write your own stories.

Happy Reading and Writing

I was born in 1960 Walton Liverpool (the same hospital ward as Paul McCartney). it was inevitable that I was going to work in music industry... Running my own studio in Bristol for 12 years and also working on production on the Pyramid stage at
Glastonbury Festival from the late 80s to the millennium. But all through this time my passion was writing ….

Writing for music and sports magazines at every opportunity I could get. Getting the chance to write as a hamster called Buster in a local magazine. I enjoyed that so much when the Cat Town idea popped into my head, It was a eureka moment and it had to be done. There is no other animal in the world to write about than cats. I am sure you would agree...

As a totally “crazy cat lover” I was really excited to hear about Norm´s new Tales From Cat Town book series. I love cats and have had them all my life. They intrigue and fascinate me with their incredible abilities and unique behaviour.

I am proud to be owned by 6 cats in my house. They never fail to amaze me with their differing personalities, funny antics and downright cheek at times!

Norm´s books resonate perfectly with me as I observe the relationship of my cats between themselves and also the ´street´ cats they come across when out exploring.

Of all the animals I love to draw , cats are by far my favourite. They are as intriguing to draw as they are to watch and I always find a human element within them.

To be involved in The Tales From Cat Town has been a fabulous experience right from the start as Norm Wilson has a unique ability to get inside a cat’s head, mix up his findings with his own unique perception and slightly surreal imagination, and then dispense it all in literary glory.

The series takes you on a whimsical, intuitive, and extremely entertaining journey.
