Friday, January 17, 2020


Well, I met my goal of having a quiet holiday season. It was nice to mostly hang out at home with my doggie herd.

Now my thoughts have turned to the year ahead with the stars and planets aligning (according to astrologers) for a positive, bargain-filled year ahead. 

OK, bargain-filled is my idea of a good year. I love a bargain and want to share with you that the digital versions of my books are all 99 cents. Print books are also available at modest prices. You can check out my books here

These books include I Want to Have the Heart of a Dog, an intriguingly different look at one woman's recovery from several lifetimes of abuse–guided by dogs whose hearts contain the simple and miraculous knowledge of the Universe.

Most of the time, I duck my head while the holidays whiz past. 

Recently I thought, What if I actually take the time to enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas and the upcoming New Year? What would that look like? How would that feel?


So how do I get there? Check out my ideas at the Rogue's Angels' blog!

ALL TREATS--for you and shelter dogs!

"Ace was my first shelter dog. A Border Collie mix with golden eyes that mesmerized me, and I knew instantly he was smarter than most people. He convinced me some of the best dogs come from the shelter." –from I Want to Have the Heart of a Dog

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month – and I have!
I have certainly taken the message of this month to heart! Not all of my doggies over the years have come from a shelter, but many have. As a writer, most of my books have pets as featured characters. Some are based on dogs who have owned me. Others are composites of dogs I have known.

The book, I Want to Have the Heart of a Dog, is personal. An intriguingly different look at one woman’s recovery from several lifetimes of abuse, betrayal and violent deaths--guided by dogs whose hearts contain the simple and miraculous knowledge of the Universe.
