Please give a short Author's Bio (please limit to 250 words)
For years my husband has urged me to write books because my passion for reading was almost as great as my passion for him. I told him I did not want to turn my love into a chore. Our youngest son in 2008, faced an end to his marriage. His daughter developed many fears from this upheaval and from this trauma, Mandy The Alpha Dog was born. My son used his cartoon drawings to add to the humor of the story which actually covers quite serious topics - fears, mistreatment, overeating, obesity, biting, forgiveness, and becoming a winner. This book initially was written to help a little girl overcome her fears, but, as friends and relatives read the story and the cartoons, we were urged to take our love of rescuing animals to the public and a publisher was sought. Mandy The Alpha Dog, the first installment in The Chronicles of the K-9 Boys and Girls on Locus Street was published and released on June 20, 2009. 10% of our proceeds are to go to animal rescue leagues.
