Millie   Character Post 26

Millie is a black tomcat with short, dense fur and brilliant green
eyes. He's a fay cat, belonging to Leilani "LeeLee" Grene during the 1980s. LeeLee acquired her cat from Brendan Miller, the leprechaun miller at Crock o' Gold village Over There. She named the kitten Millie after the miller, and installed him as her much-loved pet in the Over Here B&B on the outskirts of Patterdale.
Millie grew into a confident, handsome and large tom with the characteristic roman nose of his kind. He has a liking for sleeping on LeeLee's bed, but LeeLee's husband Mal prefers not to share, therefore, Millie has made the staircase his favoured haunt. He enjoys squatting there, purring darkly, and waiting for guests and residents alike to pass by. 
Millie is not a vicious cat, and if approached properly he enjoys a good scratch behind the ears. Because he is so dark, he has only to close his eyes to effectively vanish into the shadows at night. He is LeeLee's cat but he makes it his business to be on good terms with Mal and with LeeLee's brothers, especially Kris, who has a magnetic attraction for animals. He is not a stealth cat, and so has no other forms, but he is still a force to be reckoned with.
Millie appears in The Kissing Ring and the upcoming Calico Calypso

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books. As of February 18th 2018 I STILL haven't run out of books, but many of those still to come are MIA by which I mean I don't have copies and remember little about them. There are more new books to come, and I'll certainly showcase those, but in between times, I'm profiling some of my characters, just for a change. Thank you so much to everyone who's come along on this journey so far!
