Writing the “Great American Novel” has always been a dream, but it seemed that life would get in the way! Wrote short stories when I was a child and then started writing poetry when I graduated from college.
One of the things that I really enjoyed about teaching was watching the expression on children’s faces when they were thoroughly enjoying a story. Big smiles, and totally involved. By this time, I had two cats in the family. Even though the idea of a novel was still in the back of my mind, I decided to write about the younger cat named Sammy. He was a feral cat for about 5 months before we finally trapped him. It took several years and a LOT of patience to get him to the point that he would trust us. It paid off. He will always have that streak of not trusting completely. However, he is now very lovable and funny. I just have to laugh at him sometimes with the crazy things he does. So, I took some of these crazy things, combined it with my imagination, and you have Sam, the Superkitty.
There are three separate stories in the book written in prose form. Two of those stories are also written in poetry form. This book has been read to elementary classes and is kid approved!
“Sam, The Superkitty” is Marion Lovato’s first published book.
It is the tale of a brave cat named Sammy who is able to overcome obstacles and secure confidence in himself, and in others, by crusading as his alter ego, Sam, The Superkitty.
In the face of the many perils that go bump in the night, Sam, The Superkitty, proves himself a courageous force to be reckoned with. But, he must never let his family know that he is truly a superhero.
I am a member of Cambridge Who’s Who. They are the ones who published my book. In the future, I think I would like to try self-publishing.
I am also interested in photography and have run a business as a free-lance photographer
