So what’s it about?
When a classified piece of alien technology lands in Se Ri’s possession, she finds her world turned upside down…
In 2004, 100 miles off the Pacific Coast, two US Navy Airmen spotted a strange oval object hovering and accelerating like nothing they had seen before.
This unidentified flying object, recorded on infrared and thermal cameras, was later classified as the Tic Tac UFO and buried in secrecy by the Pentagon.
In the present, Se Ri Park, a former Ladies Professional Golf Association legend, has just returned from Canada after an explosive encounter with those who threatened to kill off her family. Hoping to seek some calm in her life, she decides to take the route of philanthropy. Yet, as fate would have it, things were not going to be in her favor.
In a last-minute revelation, she receives an inheritance from her mentor, which also includes an alien craft technology that resembles a breath mint: the Tic Tac UFO.
And this puts her into the international limelight, with the USA, Canada, China, and North Korea all wanting a piece of this unique alien tech that now lies in Se Ri’s hands.
What follows is a tale of manipulation, geopolitical tensions, and the adventures of an unlikely group – led by Se Ri – racing against time to stop international powers from escalating.
This intense, sci-fi political thriller brings Se Ri face-to-face with unexpected and unprecedented twists. High on the heels of Walking the Dog, this fourth entry in Se Ri Park’s adventures will put international as well as personal relations to the test.
Can Se Ri use the Tic Tac craft to leverage what she wants? Will she uncover the political machinations behind it? Or will this piece of alien technology prove to be her undoing?
Join in on this page-turning story of human compassion and conviction against unlikely odds…

5 Fun Facts: for behind the books (406 words)
- Fortune Cats is a series of fiction by Canadian author Dave Hutchinson.
- The theme of book 1, Fortune Cats with Nine Irons is love.
- Book 2, Fortunes Cats with Full Tummies has a theme of survival.
- Book 3, Fortune Cats Walking the Dog has a theme of revenge.
- The latest installment is Book 4. Fortune Cats Intercession has a theme of compassion. No, the protagonist is not softening over the series, she just realises that not all bridges need to be burned.
- The series protagonist is Se Ri Park. Book 1 starts out on her first afternoon as a retired member of the Ladies Professional Golf Association. Se Ri’s passion and intensity for the game evaporated the moment she qualified for the LPGA Hall of Fame. In her late twenties, not married, no children, no boyfriend and an open calendar, the protagonist steps away from her life of plush green fairways. She then in the first person…Narrates a fresh beginning.
- Se Ri Park character development is the greatest story never written. At least my greatest story never written. I had been outlining a sport centric manuscript told from a male perspective, when a new character was needed for background verisimilitude. I made quick work of sketching out a female Korean golf instructor, then attempted to move on. I was incapable of moving on until she climbed the ladder to the top rung. Yes, I had to start the outline all over, Se Ri just would not have it any other way!
- Se Ri lives on Jupiter Island in Florida USA. She and her twin sister were born in South Korea as was their mother. Her grandmother and great grandmothers though were born in the north portion of Korea, now known as the DPRK. With each story installment the DPRK connection gets deeper. The northern heritage and the DPRK political connections are always influencing the direction of each story.
- The Fortune Cats Intercession story was peeled from the headlines as the expression goes. In 2017 the NY Times had an article that described a US Navy encounter with an unidentified flying object. The subject matter was fascinating and I found myself asking, where did that object come from? The fictional Intercession story is my explanation. From the extreme time delay in awarding a contract to its unexpected success, it was my intent to always have one foot grounded in our present-day reality.

Based on the despair that Se Ri witnessed firsthand in the world sanctioned country, she decided to commit herself to improving the security of that country’s food supply lines. Her wealth and indomitable spirit would be tested, as her choice was to leverage the Tic Tac inheritance to achieve her goal.
Se Ri’s attempt to trade limited access of secret USA built technology for DPRK denuclearization; enrages the American political system, concerns both the Roman Catholic Church and The Southern Baptist Convention and causes the Chinese leadership to abandon any pretense of having a moral compass.
