They now get to travel far away from the little wooded neighborhood they live in, exploring the world and discovering fascinating adventures with their owner and pilot.

About the Author

Captain Dan Quinn, a pilot with a major airline, was packing his suitcase for an overseas trip and crafted a storyline about his own two cats who secretly stowaway in his carryon bag to travel with him. With the help of a friend and neighbor Kristen Connors, the actual story came to life on paper. Dan and Kristen's shared passion for international travel and their appreciation of different cultures and customs was easily combined through adorable tales of cat adventures into their first book, "First-Class Cats". As we continue from the inaugural flight story, readers arrive in Paris, France where the cats discover foreign customs and learn all about the great French city.


Dan is a former military officer who enjoys music and lives in a little wooded neighborhood in Atlanta, GA.  Kristen earned a BA from Wagner College-NY in English Literature and Journalism. She enjoys travel and music and lives in the same little wooded neighborhood. She also has two adorable cats at home.
