The Night Has Teeth, Kat Kruger

On a blustery winter day recently, I had lunch with my friend and author, Kat Kruger. We met at a really neat little restaurant called Istanbul Cafe  A gigantic mural of the Bosphorus River decorates one wall! Here is the charming Kat holding up her book, The Night Has Teeth, Book One of the Magdeburg Trilogy. I love the cover......can you guess what it is about?

Werewolves! The bitten and the born. It is a young adult novel about the paranormal and is quite good actually! It has already won an award and great reviews are pouring in from all over the world. Takes place in Paris and has loads of interesting twists and turns. Fierce Ink Press is the publisher. Kat is going to be in Toronto on a book tour soon so if you are in the vicinity and would like to meet Kat, here is her schedule  Of course I got her to sign my copy before we ate.
The menu was full of interesting choices  so  it was hard to choose but finally I  decided on the lentil kofte wrap. Thanks to Kat's recomendation. A light vegetarian option.
Mmmm, it was really good and hit the spot. I had never eaten one before. The toasted pita bread was luscious. I wish I had taken a picture of the filling, a red lentil concoction with fresh onions and herbs.
You can find the Istanbul Cafe on Spring Garden Road near Robie Street. On Saturdays they even have belly dancers in. Haha, must check it out.
 Fierce Ink Press is on the lookout for young adult novels so if you are a writer, click on the link and have a poke around their site. They welcome submissions. Here is Kat's website with some more info if you are interested:) Hey Kat it was great to hook up again!
