Raven and Theo

Book Two, Story One

These two cat brothers, both solid black with piercing yellow eyes, were brought to my new farm as young kittens as a gift from a friend from her farm. Two black kittens and one gray-and-white kitten were in that litter. The entire “family” was gifted to me for my new barn and farm. New to any kind of cats, I didn’t know if they would stay or run away, but they stayed and are still at my farm. I named them Raven, Cleo and Angel, but when I had them spayed and neutered and learned that Cleo was a boy cat, I renamed him Theo, for a “cool cat” African-American man whom I knew from a job I had in the corporate world in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His name is Theo Braddy. He knows this barn cat is named for him! So, Raven and Theo and Angel still live happily at my farm, roaming the woods and napping in sunbeams on bales of hay…just like all the cats at Green Apple Acres!

What Our Readers Say…

Lauren Vowler
2nd Grade Teacher North Side Elementary, Harrisburg, PA
Cynthia came to North Side Elementary for an author’s visit assembly for students at our elementary school. Each classroom had prepared for her visit by reading Adventures at Green Apple Acres. The stories were engaging and fun. Each story taught a life lesson to which students could easily relate. The children were very excited for the presentation and Cynthia didn’t let them down. She was wonderful. She showed the kids pictures of the real animals that the characters in her stories were based on. She talked about the writing process and inspired our young authors to keep up their hard work.
