The General’s Debut

Hello there. This is The General speaking. I am the leader of the team dedicated to keeping Mortimer’s inventions out of the wrong hands (or paws!). I am a 21-year-old pure-blooded Siamese cat who would look something like this:

Or according to Lydia at BES, something like this:

The General (By Lydia)

I received a question from a loyal fan during Operation “Ask Flash!” last week. Dot wanted to know: “Why are there no girls on the team?”

Well, Dot, there is no real reason for there being no girls on the team besides the fact that the cats who lived nearby and agreed to join my team happened to be boys. I don’t know what Cindy has planned for any additional books. It’s always possible that Flash will talk her into imagining a girl into the story. It seems we will have to wait and see.

Thank you to my fans for the picture and the question. I enjoyed visiting with all of you today.

Patience, Flash, I am almost finished!

You may send any further questions to me by making a comment starting with the words, “Ask The General.” Now, as you can see, Flash is anxious to start his portion of today’s post so I will turn it over to him.


Wow, I thought the old guy would never finish! Doesn’t he know that it’s time for . . .

This week’s theme is lightning bolts! Can’t you just see the cover of my book with “Flash” spelled out in lightning bolts? Me, too!

This one makes me shiver. I could have been killed–death by washing!

Well, that’s it for this week. See you on Friday. (P.S. Only 14 more days till the editor’s deadline!!)

    I don’t know how many I will buy. I want every kid in the world to have a chance to read about you, Flash. Kids love good stories. Two weeks will go by fast I hope.

    Lots of copies for presents and lots of copies for me! I can’t wait until the book is out. I will read it as much as I read Harry Potter. Cindy’s books are amazing! 😉 😉 😉 Keep on writing Cindy. 😉 😉 😉

    • I’ll tell her what you said. That will make her feel good! You can ask her a question about her new book if you want and I’ll let her answer it on “Ask Flash!” day next week.
