Volume 1 - Origins (2018) - Available in Print and EPUB
The Jinimaru are a race of humanoid-like felines on an evolutionary par with Humans. They are still primitive in appearance, but their cognitive abilities and guile are far more advanced than what we may see on the surface. One such ability is the telling of tales, many which are based on fact within their culture. In ORIGINS we explore an actual event within the Jinimaru history, that is not one of those simple fairy tales they might tell their cubs. Delving back millions of years to their alien ancestors, the Feles, leading to the ultimate destruction of the civilisation. Who were the Feles, and what evil brought about their doom? And who brought it upon themselves to bring the Feles back as Jinimaru?
Volume 2 - Koru and Koura (2018) - Available in Print and EPUB
In KORU & KOURA we explore a tale spun around the mythos of Gods and Demons; the siblings of life and death, Koru and Koura. A forest is being destroyed for urban settlements on a small island in China, stirring an ancient Jinimaru deity into vengeance, whilst it is up to a young cub to stop him. Can Koru save the islanders from Koura's poisonous hatred?
Volume 3 - N'iota, The Creature of Ambition (TBC)
N'IOTA is a slave-turned-pirate Jinimaru, who seeks to create a better life for his people; to free them from slavers, and bring justice against a corrupt Naval Officer that robbed him of his voice. His ambition to save his people and spread his message, that a Jinimaru can do anything if he or she puts their mind to it, drives N’iota to desperate measures to see his vision become a reality. Can N’iota end the enslavement of Jinimaru, or will he simply make things worse?

Volume 4 - James, The Mad Cat (TBC)
JAMES is a thief of the old American West who enjoys nothing more than harassing and tormenting the local law and citizens of Coyote Creek. He has a habit of stealing items for others without wanting any pay, for the grief he causes former Marshall Jensen is rewarding enough to this crazed feline. These strange mannerisms, along with his lack of respect for personal safety, earned him the title of "Mad Cat". Will Jensen ever bring him to justice?
