About the author
Roger Mader

“Let the story come to you” is a tip on writing that Roger Mader was once given. This one came to his door in the form of a scrawny little gray and white cat. In wondering where she had come from, Roger wrote his first story for children, Lost Cat, and the new arrival modeled for his illustrations. A former creative director in an international advertising agency, Roger now lives in the Normandy countryside with his French wife, Martine, and Pete, the little cat who adopted them.
