A Novel About Pets & People
Due Out in 2022
Raising Artemis is a poignant and uplifting story about the extraordinary soul connection between pets and people, as only a cat could tell it.
Our animals know us better than almost anyone. They see into our souls and connect to our hearts. What if we could see how all pets interconnect to form a group of compassionate and understanding guardians who teach us how to heal, and ultimately how to love? What if we knew what our pets were trying to tell us?
Narrated by the sharp-witted Lucy, a Birman cat who lived with her human for fifteen years before crossing over the Rainbow Bridge, Raising Artemis tells the story of Artemis Elizabeth Nicche, a doctor on the verge of a nervous breakdown trying to cope with the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Artemis’s inability to save lives dredges up memories of her tragic childhood, forcing her to focus on healing herself for the first time. Lucy escorts us through the seminal moments in Artemis’s life, showing us all what animals can teach us about being human.
