In a dangerous and uncertain world, can a group of individuals find the courage of faith to risk and seek after something higher? A story of community, family, friends and enemies, "Catsmas" is an anthropomorphic tale (human traits given to animal characters) of love and hate, good versus evil, leaders and followers, youth and maturity, jealousy and grace, deception and truth, nobility and selfishness. "Catsmas" also asks the question, "what happens if the prodigal son doesn't come home?" Whether appreciated simply as a good story or for a deeper allegorical meaning, "Catsmas" will be enjoyed at different levels by readers of all ages. Kevin Rice is an author, parent, lawyer and is active in his community. A native Southern Californian, his writings have appeared in "The Orange County Register" and other publications around the country. In writing "Catsmas" Kevin drew upon his experience as a writer and illustrator of stories for his children and his diverse background in politics, the practice of law, and coaching youth athletics. He holds a B.A. Degree in Political Science from California State University Fullerton, and a J.D. from Western State University, and together with his wife Laura and their four children he lives near the city of Orange, California. When he's not writing or coaching, Kevin enjoys attending to his urban hobby farm.
