Jenny (Tales from P.A.W.S. 4) – New Release

Jenny

Hey folks, exciting news. After a long break from publishing I have a new release — a new short story from my ongoing series, Tales from P.A.W.S.

In this story we follow Miri Katz’s childhood best friend, Jenny.

Jenny is sitting on the steps of their old building in the Lower East Side drawing (she loves to draw) when she encounters a calico cat.

The cat leads here to the village of Manus Wu where she finds a bird trapped in a silver cage. This saddens Jenny and she longs to release the bird. In fact she longs to release all the birds trapped by the Bird Man.

Will she succeed? Find out in JENNY – just 99 cents in Kindle, Nook, iTunes and Kobo.

Friday Fiction – Meet Moishe Zeikel

Happy Chanukah folks. This Friday I’m sharing a little drabble I wrote for Facebook’s Fiction Writer’s Group’s annual holiday drabble collection. You can pick up the full collection on Amazon for just 99 cents.

First a little about Moshe Zeikel. Moishe was in P.A.W.S., but was never given a name. He is the kindly old man who takes in Max and Celia when they first land in New York. Of course he thinks they are just cats that stowed onto the ship to America. So here is a scene from Max and Celia’s first Chanukah in America.

First Lights

By Debbie Manber Kupfer

Moshe Zeikel sat by the window in his one room apartment on Essex Street and waited for the sun to set. As it descended he took the blue shammas candle from its holder in the center of the menorah, lit it, and recited the prayer.

The two cats sat close by watching. The brown tabby looked over at the grey silky one with the green eyes. He put his paw on hers as they observed the old man light the Chanukah candles. They were home, he thought. Home and safe. It was time for a whole new adventure to begin.

Fiction Friday – Vodka & Watermelons

“Ouch… what…? Stop… let me sleep….”

Something was hitting my nose. Whatever it was I wished it would go away. My head felt as if a gang of marauding imps had forced their way through my ears and now were attempting to pull out my brains piece by agonizing piece. I groggily opened my eyes and tried to focus on the two orange eyes staring back at me.
