Children's Cat Books by Julia Jarman
About Julia Jarman
British author Julia Jarman lives in a small village about an hour north of London, England, where she enjoys visits from her five grandchildren, who love her books and her roast dinners. As a child, she loved finding a secret place to hide from her older siblings and read. She wanted to be like Jo March in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women books. With that dream in mind, she studied English and Drama at Manchester University and became a teacher. But she put her plans on hold when she married and had children...until one day when her daughter, Josie, encouraged her to write a story she'd just told. And a new children's author was born.
Julia puts all her cats into her books so she can remember them when they're gone one day. Says she of her "The Time-Travelling Cat" series, "Ka has the wandering nature of Mr Grey, the super-intelligence of Mrs Gingerbits and the affectionate nature of Ms Mitten." The Mr Grey she refers to is also known as Oscar, and is the cat pictured here with her.
"[Oscar's] real life exploits led me to write the Time Travelling Cat stories. I call the cat in my stories Ka. She's a female cat and you can read about her Egyptian adventures with her friend Topher in The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess. Their second journey takes them to Elizabethan England, their third to Roman Britain, their fourth to the time of the Aztecs and the fifth to Anglo-Saxon England when it was terrorised by Vikings, the sixth to Victorian times."
