DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.

Life on the big city streetswas good for Jack the Cat, the charismatic leader of First Street and a feline until he accidentally discovered a criminal conspiracy that threatened all the feral cats living in The Five Streets neighborhood.
Jack was left as a small kitten on the edge of The Five Streets and made his bones under the paws of the famous tomcat Big Boy. Taken in by the prior leader of 1st Street, he learned to use his social skills to survive and respect the laws of the streets. Now, his demanding role as a leader takes all Jack's attention and cares to keep life balanced in the Five Streets.
Everything is peachy in Jack's routine of protection and survival on 1st Street until he discovers that the cats' food sources are disappearing everywhere in the Five Streets area. Jack's first mystery investigation will change the lives of all the cats living on the outskirts of the Big City forever. Aided by his friends and fellow street leaders, the knowledgeable lady Gina, her imposing one-eyed protector Churchill, and a housecat acquaintance named Misty Moo-Moo, Jack finds more than he bargained for when he exposes some of the prime suspects in the neighborhood – Thumbs the Cat, a rival street leader, and the Grey, a big city cat with connections.
Change is coming for the cats of the Five Streets, and an unknown threat is looming on the horizon.
The Adventures of Jack the Cat: The Food Thief is the addictive first cat mystery novel in the famous Jack the Cat mystery series for adults and teens. Fans of Jack the Cat and his band of rambunctious street cats will also want to catch up with their favorite black cat in his next book, The Adventures of Jack the Cat: The Sign of Three.
"Each Street has its clever personality type, reminiscent of each Hogwarts House, and it is fun to pick a favorite. Jack's partnerships with other cats in the novel grow as the mystery unfolds. Survival is the mission, and each friendship is vital. Well done! Read it in a comfortable window nook and enjoy!" - Amazon Review
