The omnipresent cat has been on the desks and laps of renowned writers from Hemingway and Poe to Joyce Carol Oates and Neil Gaiman.Many people know about Ernest Hemingway and his fondness for felines. The focus of this collection will be on contemporary novelists and how their felines fuel the creative process.

Join us as we create a new book exploring the connection between dozens of famous novelists of our time and what they have to say about their feline Muse.

Each spread of A Cat on my Keyboard will feature a photo and short paragraph by the author about working with their cat. Get more info on the project or send a paragraph and picture of you and your feline muse to: freelancefreeman at 

A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Alley Cat Allies to help safeguard the lives of thousands of homeless cats trying to survive in the back alleys of major cities.

Join us for a book that celebrates the feline muse, gives you a professional portrait of you and your cat, and delights your fans while helping cats not fortunate enough to live with a writer.

As Robertson Davies said, “Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures–and cats like authors for the same reasons.”
