Anyone who has ever lived with cats knows how cunning, tender, smart, ferocious, underhanded, ingenious, foolish, and completely adorable they can be. These words describe Sugar Zach to a T. This is the epic story of the love between Sugar Zach–in his seventh life, a keenly intelligent and observant cat–and The Damsel–a writer with a frenetic, dispersive lifestyle and an apparent abhorrence of things feline. Sugar's powers of observation and analysis are unparalleled and after six lives lived among people from all walks of life he has countless stories to tell and a remarkable talent for telling them. His real area of expertise, however, lies in his preternatural ability to domesticate his humans–whatever you do, don't even suggest that we are the ones who domesticate him. Yet he is flummoxed by The Damsel's indifference to his charms. But he is not going to let her coldness stop him: one way or another, he is going to insinuate himself into her life and her art. With wit and a broad repertoire of cultural references, Sugar recounts his days and nights spent with The Damsel in a novel that fits squarely into the illustrious tradition of feline literature à la T.S. Eliot, Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire, Bukowski, and Céline.

Over the span of fi fty fi ve years, beginning at age eight, I have investigated many religions. I have read Islam’s Qur’an cover-tocover, as well as the Catholic apocrypha, in which the book of Susanna touches my heart dearly. I have read the Book of Mormon coverto- cover and it, too, touched my heart. I have been lured by the grace of Hindus and Buddhists to ponder their beliefs. Yet, I do not consider these to be a part of the preserved Word of God. Only the Biblical teachings of Jesus Christ explain to me where my spirit came from. It tells me what I did to fall from God’s grace, why I am on this planet, and why I need pardon greater than I can obtain myself. Jesus Christ has provided the Way and no other book explains it as does the Holy Bible. Th e Bible gives me healthy hope to carry on with gusto. As of the year 2010, I have read the King James Holy Bible cover-to-cover more than twenty fi ve times. Th is ongoing reading, of the preserved Word of God, is the only credential I claim and stand fi rmly upon. Biblical faith is not blind, but anchored securely in observable science. I am a nuts-and-bolts, up to my elbows in grease, kind of gear head. I want to know what makes it tick! Th e “Authorized” Holy Bible is the repair manual for life, for dummies! It explains the mysteries of God’s kingdom in detail to those who read it all very carefully. I have not arrived. My “sojourn” in this “far country” called earth is still in motion. However, we are at the threshold of major global events, as never before seen by man. Th ese events are all foretold in God’s preserved written Word. Hence, my reading of Th e Holy Bible is my only credential, and I have a passion for sharing what I have found! May you be blessed “eternally” as you journey with me the corridors of life that are not limited by time and space. May the Lord add His blessing to the reading of His entire Word. Amen. Rog
