About Carole Nelson Douglas
A former award-winning journalist, Carole moved to Texas and began writing fiction full-time in 1984. She has now written almost 60 novels and won countless awards for her writing.
The series we carry here (at least all titles in it that are currently available) is about Midnight Louie, a witty 20-pound black tomcat who lived in "the classiest hotel in Vegas" as its unofficial house detective in his original series. Later, Louie becomes the companion of Temple Barr, PR specialist, and her group of friends. The author envisions a series of 27 books in the Midnight Louie series, and says some threads of the story will only be resolved with the last of them. Louie even has his own newsletter, Midnight Louie's Scratching Post-Intelligencer, which began publication in 1995.
Louie was based on a real-life cat who lived at a motel and dined on the fish in its reflecting pond. Rescued from angry owners by a sympathetic woman, the cat captured Carole's attention when she interviewed his rescuer for a news story.
Douglas has since loved and lived with many cats, one of whom she named Midnight Louie Jr. The real Louie was an adopted shelter cat who went blind at age 8. Douglas and her husband also live with three other cats. Audrey is a former feral who adores Louie, but has never been touched by the humans in the household. Amberleigh is a tortie rescued from a neighbor's roof. Topaz is a shaded-golden who joined the household in 2009. They also have a chow-mix dog named Xanadu.
