Jen Heath has a secret: the rat girl has a crush on her college composition professor—a feline giantess. But she’s attracted the attention of a campus playboy and online bully with far darker secrets. Jen, Rory and Professor Thorferra are drawn together in an increasingly high stakes game of cat-and-mouse.
Teacher’s Pet is the first novella-length story involving Arilin, set in the same world as Higher Learning. I’ve “retconned” the setting here to move it from the original, now-defunct shared world universe it started as and into a shared milieu for several of my characters: in addition to Arilin, Riona’s and Saida’s stories take place in the area. (And, of course, there may be more stories with Jen.)
