Little Willow is the story of the relationship between Amy, a nine-year-old girl, and Little Willow, a tiny, grey cat.
Little Willow helps Amy to heal her feelings from living in an environment with parents who argue a lot and in the future might divorce.
Little Willow offers Amy potential solutions to empower herself to find a way to be happy despite her home life. In the end, Amy can see her situation in an entirely new and enlightened way concluding that she’s okay precisely as she is despite her parents’ troubles.
Little Willow’s motive is to connect with and therefore inspire children to do something different in their own lives should they be facing unpleasant family experiences. The intent is to show children a way to share and handle feelings so that they do not emotionally disconnect in their interactions with parents, siblings, extended family, peers, neighbors, teachers. Besides, Little Willow defines and establishes boundaries for the reader about what children can do for themselves when their parents are not happy.
Little Willow shares with the reader that just because parents have arguments it does not mean that they are the unlovable ones or the ones damaged in some way. Little Willow also shares that although divorce can change circumstances in a child’s life, it doesn’t alter whom the child is inside. It gives children hope in situations where they almost certainly feel hopeless.
Little Willow affirms the unconditional love of animals both real and stuffed and shows children that they are never alone. Little Willow provides valuable information to children that can also be utilized in many different situations that could arise in a child’s growing up years.

P.S. Who is Little Willow?
Little Willow is my beautiful 16-year old, six and a half pound grey cat, whom I adore. She is one of my best friends and of course had to have her own children’s book to comfort children who do not live in a supportive and enriching home environment and suffer the feelings that come with living under these circumstances.
As a child of divorce, I understand the feelings that children go through. I was fortunate to have always had pets to talk to when times got tough for me – I remember my childhood best-dog-friend, Sandy, dearly. Little Willow is an expression of me at that time. It shares that sometimes we only have to look as far as the small lump of fur at the end of the bed or the couch to know we are loved unconditionally; to get that hug that maybe our parent’s can give to us right now. Even as I write tonight, my Little Willow, or Baby Willow as she is affectionately called, sits beside me – always there for me in her quiet, comforting ways; I am humbled.
Below is the elusive Willow. She’s tough to photograph. She has an innate knack for turning her head or closing her eyes just as you go to take a picture of her! Even in this photo she’s readying herself to run!
