The Book Tart Quickie with Misa Buckley

Tin CatBy a happy accident the last few days on The Book Tart have featured sci-fi and fantasy genre books. Nope *shakes head* Not on purpose. I’m not that sneaky. lol

Today is Misa Buckley’s turn on my virtual couch. I just read her new sci-fi romance short story Tin Cat and loved it! It was a fast and fun read that made me laugh and sigh. Click HERE for my review.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Misa better. I sure did. 😀

Me: Misa! Thank you hon for stopping by The Book Tart! Happy Book Birthday to you, happy book birthday to you… *stops singing* did you have cake? A new book is a good reason for cake!  Tin Cat came out March 4th. I have mini red velvet cupcakes for us. 🙂

Can you tell us a bit about your new release, Tin Cat?


Misa: TIN CAT is a story about a woman who rescues a stray cat, falls in love with a cybernetic bounty hunter from the future and manages to save the world as we know it. That she happens to do this from a wheelchair is sort of a minor point.

I didn’t intend to write a Message, and I don’t think TIN CAT is, unless the fact that being disabled doesn’t make you incapable is a Message (I suppose it is, in a way). But it’s about more than that. It’s fun and geeky and not preachy, I swear.


Me: lol I loved all the geekiness and I liked that Amber’s story is not about her chair but about her.  😉

What are you working on now? Have you thought about more stories relating to the world from Tin Cat? *big eyes* I’d read more. 😀


Misa: Aww, that’s nice. But no. Not that I ever say never, but there’s certainly nothing planned. Instead I’m working on my first full-length novel, a future-Earth Cyberpunk about a soldier fighting to discover the truth about the corporation that created him.


Me:*squee!* Yay! That sounds like fun!


All right- I’m going to keep this short and sweet so you can go write me some more stories. ;D

Let’s play

Misa Buckley (Author)
Format: eBook


A year after the accident that put her in a wheelchair, Amber Gerald has more or less gotten used to living with her impairment. It doesn’t make a difference to running a comic book store anyway, and the customers have been the best support group she could have wished for.When she rescues an abandoned cat, Amber has no idea that she’s interfering in the mad scheme of a time travelling bank robber. Or that the man that walks into her store dressed like Blade is about to become her bodyguard.

Between being an unwitting owner of an android cat and falling for a cybernetic bounty hunter, Amber finds her life a whole new level of weird as science fiction becomes a very real factual threat.


 I am Not Junco - Range by J. A. Huss

Misa BuckleyMore Misa

Misa Buckley grew up watching Doctor Who and Star Trek and reading fantasies from Anne McCaffrey and David Eddings. So when she started writing NaNoWriMo in 2007, it was sci fi that she wrote. She found writing a much-needed haven from the crazy of raising five children and a Land Rover-obsessed husband.

It took her a few years to take the step from writing to submitting, but her first published novella, IRONHAVEN, was published in July 2011 by Decadent Publishing. Now contracted with Champagne Books as well as self-publishing, she can be found on Twitter (@MisaBuckley) or at her website (
