Yellow-Eyed Cat

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Scribe DiVoran 

Hello, my friends. 

You’ll recall that I am strictly an inside cat. That is because I am a terrific and skillful hunter, and my parents are afraid that I would catch all the birds, squirrels, and rabbits in the back yard and beyond. But one of the things in my DNA is to hunt, so I have to find ways to cope. 

The other reason I’m not allowed outside is that somebody experimented to see whether indoor cats or outdoor cats live longer. Most of the indoor cats lived longer than the outside ones, so I’m not unhappy about that rule. 

We have a garage studio with gaps under the door. Small bugs come in, and I catch them. I can sit for hours in front of a place where I have once caught something. My family approves of my keeping the house clear of such creatures. A couple of days ago, I was trying to get to something I knew was under a throw rug. Mama distracted me and lifted the rug for a second.  Then she knew what was under there, but I didn’t. Mama picked me up, and though I struggled to get back to the rug, I ended up on the screened porch.

Later, I heard her telling Papa that what she’d seen was a black snake the size of a short shoelace with a red ring around its neck. Mama picked him up with her grabber and set him down outside. When she looked later, the baby snake was gone.” Hopefully,” she said, “it wiggled away on its own.” She looked it up on that big machine where she sits and stares at so much of the time, but I can’t remember what the name was. If I keep a close watch on that rug and ruffle it up a lot, I might get to find another one. 

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
