Roy Perkins is a father and grandfather currently residing in southern New England with his best friend, a tuxedo cat named Theo. He has published his new book “Created Equal, but Not for Long: Dexter, Son of Marvin”: a compelling dialogue that keeps the pages turning until the shocking conclusion.

The author writes, “This story deals with a retired sewer plant worker who finds a kitten abandoned at the plant. With the aid of the veterinarian and good nursing care, he manages to bring the kitten back into a state of good health. The main characters are Alex Yates and a talking cat named Dexter, who is addicted to Land O’Lakes cheese, has an IQ of 162, and is also a male chauvinist feline. The story reveals how Dexter guides and directs Alex through the trials of using his talents and gifts for the common good. Alex does this by leaping into the bodies of people and actually becoming them. Dexter often has to order Alex to leave a body because he’s becoming completely absorbed into the new personality.

The writing deals with love, despair, heartache, dependence, and independence. The story reveals to the reader that people mistakenly live for tomorrow while forgetting about today. Although at first Dexter is not allowed to violate man’s free will, he inadvertently skirts around the issue by becoming a police officer for the Culpeper Police Department.

In the end, as Dexter believes that his job is done, the story has a shocking ending, which backfires right back at Dexter. This omniscient cat is in for a shock of his own.

Reflective words inferred in the writing: We are all born with talents that are gifts from God. We cannot earn or buy them. They are a gift. We all have different gifts. Some have many. Some have few. In the next life we shall be measured by what we did with our gifts. We don’t get to keep what we have. We’re supposed to give it away.”
