Cats of the PNW

Cats of the Pacific Northwest

“Thanks to Donley, I’ll have to look at my cats with a raised eyebrow from now on. Cats of the Pacific Northwest is unnerving and has visuals that will creep up your brain stem in the dead of night.”

Shane Hawk – author of Anoka

“This dark, contemporary fairy tale weaves together Hansel and Gretel, The Blair Witch Project, and Get Out, and to create an unsettling, moving, and haunting story.”

Richard Thomas – author of Disintegration, and Breaker (Thriller nominee)

David, an unsure young man, is trying to figure out how to be a “man” in the modern age. Well, at least what his girlfriend, Emma, expects of him.
