IN SOME CULTURES, BLACK CATS ARE GOOD LUCK. In Japan, if you are a single lady, owning a black cat is said to increase your number of suitors. If one crosses your path from left to right in Germany, good things will happen.
So maybe having a black cat as a major character in my clean, small-town romance, A Very Black Cat, will bring me good luck? Yep, it will, I’m sure of it. Felines are great fun and my black cat, Smoky, keeps me company while I write.
