Courtni Payne, who survived a tumultuous childhood by finding solace in books, has completed her new book “Cheshire Grim": an epic adventure in which strong, smart, sensible, and sassy women are combating chaotic evil at its worst.

Payne writes, "The bloodcurdling scream filled the alleyway, pricking each fur-covered pointy ear of every hunter therein. The leader of those hunters cast her sharp green eyes—able to see as well at night as during noon—onto the hysterically screaming middle-aged woman. In addition to just the faintest flick of her blood-soaked head, she sent mental instructions to her fellow hunters; and in a blink of an eye—a human eye, that is—all five feline forms vanished. She removed herself as well from the horrified woman’s sight yet kept her uncanny green eyes locked on the young woman that stood stunned alongside the screamer. This girl was special."

Published by Page Publishing, Courtni Payne's riveting work is about how Bast is a mother goddess, and yet generations before her reputation was domesticated, as were the wildcats from which she took her image, she was a warrior goddess embodying all the ferocity, tenacity, strength, and killer instinct of those same cats.

Anubis is the son of Bast, and guider of souls to the Underworld. In his impetuous youth and boredom, the young god creates a plague that has been battled against for five thousand years.

Samantha Cheshire is a freak and outcast. Her sun-yellow eyes have brought years of harassment from her peers in public school. Only now, Samantha has been discovered on the cusp of her becoming, discovered by those who can, and do, accept her as a sister.

Readers who wish to experience this epic work can purchase “Cheshire Grim” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
