Stories of cat turn into book for first-time author Viola Smallwood of Kendall
Miami Herald | News
Viola Smallwood, 85, hadn’t written much since her school days, but the escapades of her spunky cat Missy were a story to tell.
Now the story of her cat is tucked inside the pages of a children’s book, The Saga of Missy the Cat, making Smallwood, a retired Jackson Memorial nurse, a first-time author.
“I never had any intentions of writing a book,” Smallwood said. “I am an old lady. I just wanted to see if I could actually do it.”
