And the winner is....

No, I’m not referring to The Oscars. Now that I’ve created all this space, I was curious to see what wondrous idea would step up and present itself to me, eager to become part of my life.

Would it be a dog? A person - preferably a landscaper with deck repair connections? A new product to offer to the animal lovers who enjoy our books?

I’m excited to say that the winner is…a new book! Over the years, many people have suggested I write something about the wonderful animals who wait in shelters for someone to rescue them. All of my critters have been rescued – many from shelters, one from a shipyard and another from running on the train tracks.

Then there are my four magical kitties. Jake found them in the yard 9 years ago, when they were 3 weeks old. Sometimes it’s hard to believe the furballs have been with me that long. Other times I can’t imagine there was EVER a time the kitties weren’t in my life, keeping me inspired and entertained.

So there it is - a new book about shelter animals is going through the birthing process.

Will keep you updated…

A beautiful idea! I know that I can't imagine life without my lovely Luddy, a mixed-breed dog, adopted first by a county animal shelter worker who rescued him on the day he was due to be put down, all because he got lost and his seven days were up. His story is a long one but he's with my family now. He's a three walks-a-day dog who can't go anywhere without someone stopping us to say, "Oh! What a beautiful dog. What kind of a dog is he?" And what a beautiful soul he has, as well.
I'm sure your book will save countless lives as it inspires others to rescue from shelters. What a great way to make a difference! I look forward to more updates and I hope you enjoy the process.
