If you enjoy reading tales outside the realm of humanity's egocentric view point-check out these books!
In The Furlites of Aroriel books, the alien families are people, but not Homo Sapiens or even hominid, but a furry saurian species. Though not human, they love, fear, work, play, and strive to find answers about the universe around them. The best description for these books is, "alien family saga", which in itself is a weird little category all its own.

The Furlites of Aroriel: On Matissia Wings (Book I) and  The Furlites of Aroriel:Earth-bred, Matissia-born (Book II) 

follow Clan Darius as they crew the first interstellar ship on its maiden voyage. They crash land on a warm world populated by a species that calls itself human, but it is not the human species the proud Clan brings home with them, but a new species that causes strife and unrest such as not been seen in octuaries.

CURSE OF KORIS , a Furlites of Aroriel novel, follows the story of Kutius, Murkuria's nemesis, through his childhood into adulthood, as he endures events and heartbreak that shape his life, until he decides to break the curse of his ancestor.

I've gotten into WARRIORS by Erin Hunter and have even delved into writing fan fiction in this venue, which I do purely for fun! The name of the tale is called NEW BLOOD-Born of Smoke & Fire which is posted on the Warriors fan fiction board,  http://wcrpforums.com/thread/293/blood-born-smoke-fire-complete

News! In the works! For my Khan: A Maine Coon fans! The sequel to KHAN: A MAINE COON, (working title is MAINE COON KAI & OTHER CAT TALES) Kai deserves his story told for the unique and loving cat he is. At 12 years old, he developed kidney disease, and passed away on January 26, 2015. I realized his tale needs telling as much as Khan's did. His tale will be with a few other cat tales including Phantom's early kitten days, and the amazing reunion of half sister Maine Coon girls, Abby and JaJa!
