Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience full of Jackson Galaxy fans who carry a guitar case full of catnip everywhere they go? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
I don?t know if I?d rather be one of Lissa Warren?s cats or one of the authors she shepherds around when their books are published.
Either way, you can count on receiving some extraordinary care and handling. And probably feeding, too.
I?ve known Lissa for several years in her role as book publicist for Boston-based DeCapo Press. She has connected me with some of Mr. Media?s most popular interviews, including former TV ?Hercules? Kevin Sorbo, singer and former Righteous Brother Bill Medley, and, most recently, Anthrax co-founder Scott Ian.

She is always a pro and always a pleasure.
Like a lot of people we deal with daily in singular roles, it?s often a surprise to learn they have lives outside of the way we know them.
For example, I had no idea that Lissa was such a complete homebody. Or that she has an MFA in creative writing, with a lean toward poetry.
Or that she was a cat person.
I learned that she had written The Good Luck Cat: How a Cat Saved a Family, and a Family Saved a Cat by sheer accident. We became Facebook friends recently, after years of strictly professional interaction, and I suddenly saw all these references to an upcoming book.
Why didn?t you tell me? I asked.
This must be the first time a book publicist didn?t want to impose on someone in the media for publicity. And for herself!
But Lissa Warren has written a warm, touching, family-friendly memoir of the life she and her parents built around a most unusual cat, a Korat named Ting-Pei Warren. There are moments of great humor and great sadness captured forever in these pages.
My number one takeaway? I wish I had known her dad, Jerry Warren. Seems like I missed meeting a fascinating man.
And that Lissa is a peach.
