MK Publishing

In 2017, my then 8-year old daughter and I decided to write a book together based on the antics of our new cat, Phoenix. What began as a project ended with an actual publication.  From that point on, we started coming up with ideas of things that matter to us. But, instead of just thinking about them, we developed them. After the book came card games and then apparel. In 2020, we launched MonkeyKitty Publishing inspired by our beloved kitty, Monkey.  While there is no real theme to our creations, we know one thing…they highlight what is important to us, and maybe others will find these creations fun, useful, or even inspiring.

This 40-page award-winning illustrated book shares the story of Fenix and her friends as her curiosity leads her into adventures. Aside from the fun and sweet storyline, this book is unique in that all the illustrations have been created by the 8 year-old co-author!
