Why writing an animal book?
Kristy writes out of the passion she feels for animals.
She believes that a children’s story should be multifaceted: A fun read that would encourage young minds to love reading. It should also serve as a learning tool to introduce vocabulary development, exposure to different cultures and varied subjects; and above all foster the love of animals.
It is hoped that the Inca Cat series will gradually gain a wider reading audience which would allow proceeds of book sales to be donated to animal rescue efforts globally, particularly in developing countries.
Kristi decided to giveaway one of her book ‘Christmas Cats’ in giveaway as a ebook.
