Published by CUSTOM BOOK PUBLICATIONS

Billy's grandmother moves to an Retirement Home for the elderly up in the hills. While cleaning her bush cottage for a tenant, Billy finds a ring among the rubbish.

She slides it on her finger, quickly discovering she can talk and understand birds and animals, especially bossy ones like her grandmother's Siamese cat... Life will never be the same again..

'Come on,' the husky voice said crossly. 'We must hurry.'
I stared at the cat. Did the voice come from the cat? The cat stared back. Grandmother always said Bast was intelligent, but talking cats! Was I going down with heat stroke?
'Bast?'
'Beloved of the Goddess, the ring has accepted you,' the cat hissed.
'The ring,' I repeated like an idiot.
'The ring...' the cat hissed. She stopped lashing her tail and stared at me with her mad crossed blue eyes.
'It gives you the power to understand and be understood by all creatures.'
'Like the Dr Doolittle who could talk to animals?'
'Never heard of him,' the cat hissed.
'So I can understand cat language,' I said.
'All creatures,' the cat hissed.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Margaret Pearce was born when the population of Australia was seven million - now it is some twenty-two million.

At seven when she found a lurid science fiction magazine, her unsupervised reading started. The cover had an almost naked female in a large wine glass and an interesting alien drinking her blood from a tap below. She has since been hooked on science fiction and fantasy.

With a limited education, she completed a commercial course before being launched on an unsuspecting business world as a typist, stenographer and secretary before falling into copywriting. When she married, she added writing and even while raising children, found time to publish. When children grew, she decided to study for a arts degree as a mature age student and become a teacher, but writing continued to dominate her life.

Margaret Pearce has published some sixty books -
