Author Bio!

Author’s introductions to their books can be interesting and, while I have an intimate relationship with my history, I thought perhaps some of you would be interested in my books intros … courtesy amazon.com

On “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” – I was looking to adopt my first dog but, while I was thinking about a large, even temperament, self assured, sociable and huggy kind of dog… Ray was looking to adopt me. His plan was clearly more successful than mine because he moved in during March 2013.

He was not socialized; had no house training; was afraid of anything that moved; lunged and barked without warning; did not like to be touched, and had an attitude. He did, however, meet my criteria in size! Being a German Shepherd/Rottweiler X at 75 lbs, he was most certainly a large dog! Ray was my first dog, and “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” covers the emotional roller coaster of our first 18 months together!

On “Just Thinking” – It is a collection of simple (I get confused easily!) verses about life in general. It is my sincere hope that readers will be able to relate to the manner in which I wrote them. If a piece was emotional to me, I would hope that it could also be emotional to them. If I have incorporated situations or circumstances which I found thought-provoking, it is hoped that they would also be encouraged to pause and ponder.

On “The Odessa Chronicles”. It is pure fun fiction, with a lot of life messages, and is recommended for children ages 4 to 104! Just imagine a Barn Owl with an attitude (Odessa), who accidentally meets a Jackalope (Jaxon), who accidentally meets a cat (Dewey) whose life is eating and sleeping. The three of them are all looking for a home … and they find one, in a barn at an old disused farm.

Now imagine a human (Joshua) who is retiring and looking forward to a life of peace and tranquility on a little farm. You can guess which farm he purchases, and his life will never be the same.

So … whether it be a true doggy story, life poetry, or some fun fiction, each is available in eBook, paperback and hard cover formats, and can be purchased at all the usual on-line book retailers. “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” and “Just Thinking” are both “non-profit” ventures.

Perhaps one may be a very appropriate birthday gift, or some other occasion gift, or a simple “Thank You” to a friend! 🙂

  1. I love how all 3 books have come out of new experiences of yours. The first time of owning a dog for you, your first experience with writing poetry and the first time you write fiction, look what happens!
    So what’s the next thing you are going to do for the first time? 😉
