Craft Shows

Purple Cat Press participates in several craft and vendor shows throughout the year in Southwestern Ontario.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we’re not going to be at any shows until further notice. Please follow Purple Cat Press on social media or check back here from time to time. Want to purchase a book right now? Order online!


Our online store is open for business!

Interested in an Author Visit?

Please ask about arranging an author visit to your school or library (in southwestern Ontario). Although our stories are for children ages 4-10, older students enjoy learning about the writing, illustrating and publishing processes – and some still like to have a story read to them!

Visits are free of charge, but we do request that you purchase a copy or two of our books for your library.

About Us

Ellen likes the way Debra draws, and Debra likes the way Ellen writes.

So it’s no wonder these two very good friends got together to tell stories about their favourite animals – cats!
