Award-Winning children's author Pat Frayne, grandmother, and retired R.N., is the creator of Topaz the Conjure Cat Books for middle-grade kids. This fast-paced adventure series is for those who love cats, magic, and tales of high adventure.

Orphaned at a young age, and the last surviving cat of his kind, Topaz had no choice but to teach himself how to master this great ability.
