About Us

Kids Books written by Murray Preece and Illustrated by Pat K. Evans

In 2005 Pat asked the wordsmith Murray to write a story about her cat Outback, who longed to own a Corvette.  Murray weaved a tale of magical fun, with a message.  With Pat's whimsical, colourful illustrations, Outback the Cat Books was born.  From there, more enchanting stories ensued from Pat's crazy ideas and Murray's clever prose.

Every story has a valuable lesson and of course, a happy ending!

Available in print and Kindle format at Amazon.com
