Author Biography

R.S. Vern is the creator of the book trilogy: Haee and the other middlings.

She is often described as an oddly conflicted soul. Constantly torn between the challenges of saving the world and the reality of making a living, she calls herself a middling – urbanised, bored, and most of the time confused.

R.S. Vern enjoys coffee exchanges on concepts of being an acceptable human being. Instead of writing as herself, she feels that it is less brutal to see life through the eyes of a cat.

She currently resides on a very small, urban and competitive island populated by middlings. Haee is a real cat living in her home. At the time this book was written, Haee was 8 years old.

This book is about a middling cat with a crooked tail. What is middling? The book states that middlings commonly have a comfortable standard of living, considerable economic security, moderate work plus life autonomy and often rely on their own expertise to sustain themselves. They place great emphasis on independence and value innovation, respect the non-conformist and have great concerns for the environment. They appear established and well-rounded but often have insecurities locked within. Middlings live among others but essentially feel apart from it all. They often ask themselves this: “Are we not as happy as those who are much better off in this world?” After this statement I was hooked! Then seeing that first cat just blew me away! I love all the artwork! Haee gets restless with his life and decides to go looking for adventure and through his adventure he gets lost in a black hole but he meets a new family. He stays with the new family for years observing what they do and how they live their lives. He then again gets restless and decides to go on a new adventure with a street cat. This is where book two starts.

This book was very cute. I loved the wonderful drawings. The only drawing I had an issue with was the one on smoking. The drawings are really what make this book so cute. I can't wait to get a hold of the rest of them and I think I am a middling as well!
