Mighty the cat wants to enter the VIP kitty competition and lets nothing get in the way; he doesn’t let barf,
a cute kitten, and even his feline brother, Brennon, stop him. Mighty and Brennon brainstorm some not so award winning ideas for the contest, but finally decide to perform a feat which scares even brave cats. During the performance, an accident occurs and makes Mighty think fast on his paws. The felines’ valiant actions are recognized as heroic, and the feline brothers are presented with an odd award which Mighty secretly thinks is worse than getting coal for Christmas.
Mighty and Brennon practice what they think of as ‘exemplary behavior’ but still end up in cat behavior school. While at school, Mighty begins to hear strange buzzing sounds coming from the outdoors. These sounds are ominous to Mighty, and he later learns that they come from a machine called Vacuum Man which was first seen at the VIP kitty competition. The machine destroys almost anything on its path, and no one knows how to stop it. No one can figure out who Vacuum Man is. Mighty meets a certain Mr. Know-It-All cat at the behavior school who reveals the shocking news that Vacuum Man is headed towards Jupiter. This new insight leads Mighty to believe that Vacuum Man will destabilize the largest vacuum cleaner in the solar system: Jupiter.
With some luck, Mighty and Brennon get the chance to fly to outer space with the dynamic Space Out Society (SOS). Mighty learns about teamwork, red swirls, and trust as he faces his greatest fears on the barren landscape with courage. Mighty and Brennon don’t see aliens on Jupiter, but they feel the red sparks of victory. In order to save Earth and the solar system from destruction, the feline duo must face one of the greatest fears that cats and dogs face: the fear of vacuum cleaners and loud buzzing noises. Will Mighty and Brennon harness their might to save the solar system or will they trip over their tails?
Penny Carlile was born in Marshall, Texas, and grew up, not coincidentally, on Rusk Street. She and her husband now divide their time between Marshall and Naples, Florida. Carlile earned her bachelor of arts in English and speech from Baylor University in 1973. She taught junior high school before she co-founded a direct sales company with her husband. It was during her time as president of the company that she wrote her first book, Points from Penny, a collection of inspirational messages for the company's sales force. The Girl on Rusk Street is fiction, but many of the events in the book are straight out of Carlile's own childhood.
When Lucille Harris, a beautiful young widow, moves into the vacant house on Rusk Street in Marshall, Texas, the lives of ten-year-old Bobbi Rogers and her two best friends are turned upside down. Neighbors begin to gossip when Lucille accepts a teaching position at all-black Bishop College and married neighbor Jim Tressell starts helping her with her garden. Bobbi takes piano lessons from Lucille, and they become friends. She also likes Jim because he's nice to Lucille. When Lucille is murdered, all eyes turn to Jim who has no alibi. Only two people believe he's innocent--his brilliant but inexperienced lawyer Rufus Cornelius and Bobbi. Set against the backdrop of the 1960 presidential election and the early days of the civil rights movement, The Girl on Rusk Street is a look back at what is sometimes called a "simpler time"--and it serves as a reminder that simpler times were often anything but simple.
HerAs the wife and mother of professional rodeo bullfighters, I’ve made a few trips around the proverbial arena – mainly on my knees in prayer. As a photographer and journalist, I’ve enjoyed chronicling cowboy life, with credits in Prorodeo Sports News, Western Horseman, American Cowboy, and Horse and Rider. My years as a crime-beat reporter netted several journalistic awards and interlaced with inspirational articles I wrote for Power for Living, Standard, The Quiet Hour, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and other national publications. Today when I’m not working on my next cowboy romance, I teach creative writing at the community college and speak at conferences, retreats, and workshops.
If you’d like a signed copy of one of my books, drop me a note through my contact page and I’ll send you a signed bookplate and bookmark. Until then, relax with a good happy-ending romance, complete with all the struggles and setbacks everyday people face on an everyday basis. Be inspired by characters who approach their challenges with a special focus on the Lord and His help, realizing He is the hub around which life turns. Visit Davalynn Spencer's website.
