Meet the Author

Lilian Jackson Braun
Lilian Jackson Braun is the author of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling Cat Who... novels as well as several short story collections.

Biography

The history of Lilian Jackson Braun is perhaps as exciting and mysterious as her novels. Between 1966 and 1968, she published three novels to critical acclaim: The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern and The Cat Who Turned On and Off. In 1966, The New York Times labeled Braun, "the new detective of the year." Then, for reasons unknown, the rising mystery author disappeared from the publishing scene.

It wasn't until 1986 that the Berkley Publishing Group reintroduced Braun to the public with the publication of an original paperback, The Cat Who Saw Red. Within two years, Berkeley released four new novels in paperback and reprinted the three mysteries from the sixties. G.P. Putnam's Sons has since published seventeen Cat Who... novels, among them The Cat Who Went Up The Creek, The Cat Who Smelled a Rat, The Cat Who Robbed The Bank, The Cat Who Saw Stars, The Cat Who Tailed a Thief, The Cat Who Blew the Whistle, The Cat Who Said Cheese, The Cat Who Came to Breakfast, The Cat Who Went Into The Closet, The Cat Who Wasn't There, The Cat Who Moved The Mountain, The Cat Who Knew a Cardinal, The Cat Who Lived High, The Cat who Talked to Ghosts, The Cat Who Went Underground, The Cat Who Sniffed Glue, The Cat Who Saw Stars, and The Cat Who Sang For the Birds.

Even though Braun claims that her cats have never done anything extraordinary, her fictional cats, Koko and Yum Yum, solve crimes and delight fans in book after book. Braun says the reason for her success is that "people are simply tired of all the blood. I write what is called the classic mystery." She says that while "not all mystery fans like cats, all cat-fanciers seem to like mysteries. That makes for a large audience, since 26% of all American households own 53.9 million cats between them."

Braun was the "Good Living" editor of The Detroit Free Press for 29 years.

    Highly Recommended

    The Cat Who books are entertaining and totally absorbing. I have the entire collection.



    (Incidently I have not yet been charged for the Cat Who books that I recently ordered. Please look into the situation. Thank you very much.)

    The Cat Who...

    I just read the first three in this series and I'm hooked. The cats are purrfect and wonderfully drawn. Qwill is delightful. And the mysteries are fun, engaging and always a bit of a surprise. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants fun, fast, light reading.

    Perfect For Catlovers

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I plan on reading more. As an owner of two cats, I can relate to the antics of Koko and Yum-Yum. The bonus is the mystery. The author has a way of bringing you into the tale so effortlessly, that you are in the thick of things before you know it.
