Fur Children

puppybou0001_1.JPGAnimals are a very special part of my life – and I affectionately refer to my pets as my “fur children.” I have had many pets through the years – dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, and rats. When I volunteered my time at a therapeutic horseback riding program for children and adults with disability, the horses also became an extended part of my animal family as well. This page is designed to link readers to sub-pages about my pets – including stories, photos and thoughts. I hope you will enjoy them!

    Hi Caribousmom,

    Sorry for approaching you in this way, but I can’t seem to find a contact form or email address.

    As you obviously care about environmental and conservation issues (your Fur Children and a link to an environmental blog), I’m hoping I might interest you in reviewing my novel as, even though it’s a thriller, ‘What if…?’ has a strong philosophical element that explores these very areas. Here’s the nutshell version of what it’s about:

    During the U.S. Presidential election, a disillusioned journalist and a charismatic healer embark on a crusade to bring equality and prosperity to the world. This thrusts them into a life or death struggle with corporate America, organized crime, and even the White House which all fear losing their power.

    “Deftly and intriguingly written, ‘What if…?’ is a thriller that fans of other novels such as ‘The DaVinci Code’ will relish. Highly recommended to thriller fans everywhere and should enjoy a spot on every fiction thrillers shelf.”
    Midwest Book Review, Oregon, WI USA

    I look forward to hearing from you shortly,
