Thought-provoking drama starring Kevin Bacon as Walter, a convicted paedophile who has served his sentence for his previous crimes and is determined not to relapse. Taking a job in a lumber yard, he starts a relationship with a local woman and, although he lives in fear of his past crimes being discovered, begins to rebuild his life as best he can. When a suspicious policeman starts harrassing him, and when he finds a house across the road from a school, it seems as if his urges are not buried as deep as he had thought.

In a dangerous and uncertain world, can a group of individuals find the courage of faith to risk and seek after something higher? A story of community, family, friends and enemies, "Catsmas" is an anthropomorphic tale (human traits given to animal characters) of love and hate, good versus evil, leaders and followers, youth and maturity, jealousy and grace, deception and truth, nobility and selfishness. "Catsmas" also asks the question, "what happens if the prodigal son doesn't come home?" Whether appreciated simply as a good story or for a deeper allegorical meaning, "Catsmas" will be enjoyed at different levels by readers of all ages. Kevin Rice is an author, parent, lawyer and is active in his community. A native Southern Californian, his writings have appeared in "The Orange County Register" and other publications around the country. In writing "Catsmas" Kevin drew upon his experience as a writer and illustrator of stories for his children and his diverse background in politics, the practice of law, and coaching youth athletics. He holds a B.A. Degree in Political Science from California State University Fullerton, and a J.D. from Western State University, and together with his wife Laura and their four children he lives near the city of Orange, California. When he's not writing or coaching, Kevin enjoys attending to his urban hobby farm.

About the Author

Kevin Rice, author of Innocents Abroad, was born in Birmingham in 1947. He was educated at a school in Birmingham, and on leaving school got a job as a computer operator. In this job he learned how to write programmes for a mainframe, such as you had in the 1960's. He left that job after a year, and had a series of jobs.

In his 20's he became involved with the psychiatric system. He couldn't get a job, because there was no work, and nobody wanted to employ anybody with a past mental illness. This led to him going into hospital long term.

Whilst in hospital, he attended education classes, mostly in science and IT, since his knowledge of computers was now a bit out of date. He also read, and watched TV documentaries, which enabled him to acquire the knowledge necessary to write Innocents abroad. He was in a number of hospitals until 2007, and was then discharged to a half way house, since by now he had almost recovered.

He still lives in the half way house today, and wrote Innocents Abroad in a narrative context, hoping to help put mental illness in a more favourable light, so that in the future, nobody will be refused a job because of a past mental illness like he was in his 20's.
