Steve Akley is a self-published author of several books, including a series of children's books about Leo the Coffee Drinking Cat.

In the first book, Leo is extremely curious about coffee and dreams about going to Starbuck's. So, his 3 year old owner, Cat, makes it her mission to get him there even though her parents don't allow it.

The second book in the series, "Leo the Coffee Drinking Cat Moves to Hawaii" highlights Leo's and Cat's experiences and adventures in moving to a new place and settling in. Cleverly, Leo and Cat (and Mommy and Daddy) move to Kona on the Big Island, as that is where Hawaii's coffee is produced.

With Hawaii as the backdrop, Steve Akley is interested in incorporating local companies and points of interest. Steve and his family are also active supporters of animal charities and as a way of giving back to the book's adopted community, Steve will be generously sharing the proceeds of his books with Love A Cat Charity!

From Amazon's Editorial Review:

"Leo, along with author Steve Akley, are proud supporters of Love A Cat Charity. This 501(c)(3) organization does important work caring for and adopting feral cats in Hawaii (Leo's new home). A portion of the sale of this book as well as any of Steve's other works are contributed to their mission. To learn more about their efforts for these animals in need, check out their website:"
