Author Biography

Bio – R.F. Kristy (Author of the Inca Cat Series)
The intelligence and allure of cats has always enchanted me. Writing the Inca Cat Series arose out of the blue. I had never dreamed of writing stories for children. My specialty, due to my work with the United Nations concentrated on reports of a technical nature. A world much removed from the milieu of children’s books. I never read romantic novels, science fiction nor fantasy stories. Detective stories on the other hand have me hooked. I am rather nostalgic and like a more ordered world. From watching and interacting with both my cats, Inca and Cara, the Inca Cat Series was born. Loving a good mystery, when I started writing about the cat adventures, the ideas started flowing. The idea for the Inca Cat Series came to me, rather from living and observation- and the details in a strange way, from reading rather than from living or observation. The “Christmas Cats” followed and the third “Cats in Provence” is currently bubbling. I don't think we choose our genre, I think that a genre chooses us or should I say, Inca and Cara made the choice inevitable.
R.F. Kristi holds a doctorate in economic development and has worked for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Education, Science & Cultural Organization (UNESCO). She has traveled and lived in many countries around the globe. She is fluent in English and French.

The Cats Who Crossed Over From Paris: Inca Cat Series Book 1 by R.F. Kristi is the adorable story of Inca the Siberian cat and her furry family. The family consists of her brother, Fromage, who loves cheese, and her sister, Cara. They move to London as their human, Missy, who owns a cheese shop in Paris, is moving to the new place. In London they meet Monk, a blue Russian cat, and Terrance, a golden retriever, who are both living in their neighbor’s house. They also meet Solo, the detective who lives in the same compound. Their stay in London becomes exciting when Monk tries to help Polo, the Pekingese, whose owner, Senora, has her diamond necklace stolen. Senora is already stressed as her husband, Raoul, has been lost on Mount Everest. Will Inca and her furry family, along with Monk and Polo, be able to find the missing diamond necklace valued at one million pounds?

It is a fun read and purrfect for all cat and animal lovers. All the characters in the storybook are well sketched, relatable, and memorable. The illustrations are bright and lively and breathe life and movement into the scenes and characters. The detailed and descriptive narration makes the scenes and the characters vivid and real. The book is an excellent bedtime story book and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The furry family of Inca is charming and lovable, and kids will love reading their adventures.
