Crime Cats Mystery Club in the Newspaper!

Journalist/photographer Kevin Parks wrote a wonderful article about the Crime Cats Mystery Club winning the OELMA Literacy Leader Award. The article even features a photo of me with my favorite Cat Welfare resident, Sherbet.


My thanks and gratitude to the board, staff, and volunteers at Cat Welfare for all that they do—including making the Mystery Club so fun; to Susan Yutzey for nominating the CCMC; to the OELMA award committee; to the Mystery Club readers who have made such a difference in lives of the homeless cats at Cat Welfare; and to Mr. Parks for his enduring support of my literary and philanthropic efforts!

CCMC Wins Literacy Leader Award!

The Crime Cats Mystery Club, the shelter reading program I put together with Cat Welfare Association, was given the OELMA Literacy Leadership Award Thursday evening for our work pairing young readers and homeless cats to improve reading confidence and nurture empathy.

I’m honored for the recognition and for my good fortune to be working with the amazing board, staff, and volunteers at Cat Welfare.
