“hi Rodica Iova are you an auother”

“Yes, I am:)
Did you read some of my books?”

“i think we got one or 2 of your books we got one called Pepper and the open gat and the one with the wagon i loved those books they were so cut i really loved pepper and the open gate”

“Oh, thank you! Yes, Pepper is a darling. Still around here, at one of my friend’s house.”


“Yeap! I wrote another book about her: Pepper and the man with a shack – mysteryyyyy:)”

“oh than i might have to ask my mom to order that one.pepper and the open gate left of at a good part!”

“Haha, I knew my readers would like to read the next book:)”

“I’m glad you are a team there.”

Some say that “Charming Whiskers” is a series not only for children, but for parents as well.
If that’s true or not, we don’t know. What we know is that it’s a 5 star book on Amazon.

Aaaahhh! I Finished NaNoWriMo

It just happened that I finished it, praise God! Waking up at 3, 4 and 5 in the morning, biting my nails, trying to keep up with life while writing like a machine may not be fun all the time. My mainstream fiction novel “Just Saying” is not finished. But I will work on it on my pace, with only one cup of coffee and keeping breathing. Anyway, it was a great experience to be crazy enough and write a novel in a month. When mine will be out there, go and buy it. It was written in blood.   2013-Winner-Square-Button

Charming Whiskers – picture book on Amazon 5 Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious. November 12, 2013

This is by far one of the funniest things I’ve read. Whiskers is a character based on a real cat that Iova knows. Whiskers is a sassy, sarcastic and cute cat, but genuinely believes he is right about everything and that all the services he receives are just not quite up to his expectations. As a result, he responds to each of these “inconveniences” by writing letters of complaints to everyone who falls short of his expectations. Very funny.
