Arthur Zarr’s Amazing Art Car – Book Excerpt
Neighbors offered to help decorate Arthur’s car, too. One man gave him the fake pink flamingo from his yard. A girl no longer needed her swim goggles. A boy offered his toy helicopter. Another child gave up his plastic iguana. Arthur attached each object to his car. … “We sure like your car, Mr. Zarr!” his new friends shouted and waved as he drove by.
Cathey Graham Nickell is an author, mother, and wife living in Houston, Texas. She is best known as the seeing-eye-person for her little blind dog named Cricket. Cathey launched her first children’s picture book, Arthur Zarr’s Amazing Art Car, in November 2015. She doesn’t drive an art car herself, but she has a habit of covering the back of her SUV with bumper stickers! Cathey also snaps pictures of art cars—which are plentiful in Houston—when she sees them. Her all
-time favorite car was the bright-yellow Volkswagen Beetle that her grandmother drove in the 1970s.
Cathey draws from her experience as a former newspaper reporter and public relations professional. After taking a few years off to raise four children, Cathey started freelance writing again in 2012 when a non-profit organization called the Institute for Spirituality and Health hired her to research and write its six-decade history. Uniting Faith, Medicine and Healthcare: A 60-Year History of the Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center was published in 2015. The book is used as a marketing and communications tool, and all financial proceeds benefit the Institute (not Cathey). Cathey graduated from Baylor University with a BA in Journalism in 1985. She earned a Master of Arts from Louisiana State University-Shreveport in 2013. Find her online where she blogs about her writing and publishing adventures.
