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
