"This is an interesting book, focusing on the ideas of need versus want, what is self-fulfillment and exploring our motivations.....I suspect it is one of those books that you can turn to again and again and find different things, dependent upon your mood." - Kindle Book Review
"Bittersweet and seemingly simple, this story embodies the ambivalence the author feels about an average, middle-class existence - possibly mundane, yes, but reassuring in its certainties and not without its own joys." - ilovebooks.com
"HAEE is a beautifully illustrated and thought-provoking modern-day allegory suitable for older children and grown-ups alike." - 5 star by IndieReader
“The book should resonate with those of us in mundane humdrum middling lives.” – Judge 83, 2nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards
Middling Industries offer its most acclaimed series “Haee and the other middlings”, taking a meaningful jab at the middle class of the 21st century. Created by R.S. Vern, one of today’s most serious social bloggers, this series provides a delightful read at what it means to be functioning, breathing and living as we are today.
The story is about a middling cat, Haee, who leads a comfortable and sheltered life since young. Curious and fearless, he decides to venture out one day.
As he dives into his adventures, Haee meets two other middlings, Tom and Jane. He begins a new life in a very much-contained world that is oddly structured. At first, he has trouble living with the rules set by Jane. But he gets used to the system very soon.
Armed with curiosity and a thirst to seek out the extraordinary, Haee becomes known as the non-attached cat – one who rejects the discipline of the home and yet desires some form of security.

About the author
Often described as an oddly conflicted soul, R.S. Vern is constantly torn between the challenges of saving the world and the reality of making a living. She calls herself a middling – urbanised, bored, and most of the time confused.
R.S. Vern enjoys coffee exchanges on concepts of being an acceptable human being. Instead of writing as herself, she feels it is less brutal seeing life through the eyes of a cat.
Haee is a real cat living in her home. At the time this book was written, Haee was 8 years old.
R.S. Vern holds a Bachelor of Arts from National University of Singapore and a Masters of Arts from Oklahoma City University. She currently resides on a very small, urban and competitive island populated by middlings.
