Author Margaret Routcliffe, in her novel, “They Called Me The Cat” (published by Trafford Publishing), narrates the emotional and compelling story of one woman’s struggle to claim her birthright.

Stephanie McConnell was sent to live with her aunt and uncle when her twin siblings came down with a rare disease from Africa. While there Stephanie learned to be a championship equestrian rider and, through making enemies, discovered the seeds of her birthright – control of a palatial mansion and estate.

An excerpt from “They Called Me The Cat”:

“They told me that when I was born on that cold, wet Friday the thirteenth, that I was special, although I never quite understood why. They said that anyone who was born on Friday the thirteenth was lucky. However, on the night that I was born there was the brightest full moon that they had ever seen, especially in March.

From day one, I fought for what was rightfully mine. The dynasty that was mine from the day I was born, and there wasn’t anyone who would do me out of it. They say the strong shall survive and the meek shall inherit the earth, but I was determined to prove I could accomplish both, and proceeded to do just that.”

Soon Stephanie is taken from this luxurious lifestyle and sent back to her family. She becomes a model for her boyfriend, Tom, and becomes known as The Cat in both the modeling and photographic worlds. After being assaulted she changes careers again, becoming an attorney. In all of these things, Stephanie – The Cat – uses her skills to survive, just as if she had nine lives.
