About ‘Where the Cats Will Not Follow’
Angst-ridden young man, Ayden, finds himself held captive by his former friend, Phillip. Phillip is convinced Ayden holds the key to finding his missing girlfriend.
This shocking claim forces Ayden to revisit his past—an adolescent world shared with his older brother, Everett. It is a world filled with wondrous and often horrific experiences, where truth is uncertain and dreams and imagination blur with reality.
Yet digging up the past doesn’t come without its consequences. And soon, Ayden finds himself thrust straight into the path of old demons.
Where the Cats Will Not Follow is a surreal coming-of-age psychological horror novel.
Beyond the surrealism and nightmarish qualities, I see Where the Cats Will Not Follow as an exploration of unhealthy relationships. At its core, it’s a coming-of-age story filled with manipulation (who is manipulating who?), angst, and gut-wrenching self-discovery. I wanted to capture the emotions of someone resisting the transition into adulthood so vehemently, so keen on staying in the past and attempting to relive it, that he is practically kicking and screaming against growing up.
