Interview with Anne Scott, author of The Feline Cup

Anne Scott’s latest book, The Feline Cup, has just been released on Amazon. This whimisical,satirical collection of stories uses cats to highlight a few of the absurdities surrounding us and take a paw-swipe at some of our most hallowed icons. It’s intended as entertaining light reading and hits the mark purrfectly. I was lucky enough to interview Anne recently and this is what she said:

Q: How did you come up with the title of your book?
A: There are so many sporting codes playing for this cup or that cup world wide.
I just imaged the players as cats playing football for ‘ The Feline Cup.’

Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?
A: Watching people’s obsession with sporting codes involving grown men exhausting themselves chasing small balls with not a lot of results. Cats like to play with small balls, perhaps of paper or a tennis ball etc, so I imagined the players as cats

Q: What genre does your book come under?
A: Fiction/Satire

Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A: Take a humorous journey and see yourself though the eyes of Cat Vale’s cats; join them on Feline Park as they compete for The Feline Cup or follow the spoof of Chief Inspector Claws as he tries to solve the murder of Miss Bella, a sexy pussy with pleasing paws; or perhaps go with the thieves as they rob Rodents-to-Go.

Q: Will your book be self-published, published by an independent or represented by an agency?
A: The last two.

Q: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A: 2/3 months.

Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: These are funny, whimsical tales for those of us who sometimes want a little light distraction.

Q: What other authors could you compare yourself with?
A: The Feline Cup is unique.
