Spotlight for Jewel Kats

WOI Banner Jewel Kats

About the Book:

A reality-series comic strip based on Award-winning Author Jewel Kats’ life. Jewel at 33 is a Princess in her own right. She’s a fun-loving, demanding Diva who loves to shop as much she loves to write. Jewel is the apple of everyone’s eye–be it her doting family, her doctor for her never-ending bowel issues, her pushy book editor and especially her frugal husband’s soft spot. So, what’s Jewel ‘s weakness? Her pet dogs: Snowie and Dolly. Particularly, naughty Snowie who is known to pee wherever he fancies–including Dolly’s face!

For Jewel, her physical disability doesn’t dampen her spirits. Rather, it enhances them. She gets to use an unusual fashion accessory (Imagine: A hot pink elbow crutch.) She gets out of doing housework. She gets carried up-and-down stairs like a Princess a la command. Jewel may be horribly messy, terrible with numbers and a workaholic, but nobody can imagine life without her. Not that she would let them, anyway! She has a big mouth, remember?

The book is a quick, fun read.
