Book Blurb:


“Everything old is new again”, including a romance from a past life.


Nick, a popular and well-liked high school junior, is looking forward to another outstanding year, coasting toward graduation and a stellar football career like his dad. 


This all changes when a new girl, Cat, enrolls in school and says they were once boyfriend and girlfriend—seventy years ago! But worse still, Nick begins remembering WWII and a boy named Jean Claude, who, while enrolled in a military academy in a small French town, was in love with a gypsy girl, Chaton. 


Nick’s perfect life begins to unravel bit by bit. And he’s starting to be attracted to Cat, much to the disbelief and anger of his class-president girlfriend, Emily. In one short moment, Cat has turned his life into a catastrophe. 




“Hi, I’m Nick.” He sat in the vacant desk next to her.


            “I know.”


            He crossed his arms. “How?” Two could play that game.


            She sat looking at him, not responding to his question.


            Finally he broke the silence, hoping this chick wasn’t a drama queen bent on causing problems. “You’re Catherine?”


            “I only answer to Cat—or Chaton,” she said with a wink.


            He studied her features then. She looked a bit like a cat with her black hair, topaz-brown eyes, and long fingernails. He tried not to stare, but she was so different from the other girls at school.


            “So which is it? Cat or Chaton?”


            “They mean the same. Chaton is ‘kitten’ in French.”


            “I don’t know French.”


            She quirked a brow at him. “Are you sure?”


            “Yes, I’m sure.” WhateverOui. Je suis sur. Oh, damn, where had that come from? He clamped his gaping mouth shut.


            “I was once a cat,” she said.


            Nick remained quiet. His thoughts skittering around like a mouse being pursued by a… Whoa! First he was thinking in French, and then she tells him something like that? How was he supposed to respond? He frowned, studied the top of his desk, and said nothing.


            “I have eight more lives to go,” she added.

Author Biography:


Sue writes five-star LitPick novels that keep readers of all ages turning pages long into the night. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, attending author events, or walking her dogs. She has two children and five grandchildren. Snack wise, Sue is a salty-type gal, but wouldn’t say no to an occasional chocolate kiss or two! She isn’t sure she’s a reincarnated author, but if she was, she’d want to be Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, or Emily Brontë. When her novels are run through author comparison sites, she gets Anne Rice through Mark Twain—quite a wide spread which makes for interesting reading (Tom Sawyer was a Vampire?).
