This unique hardcover "fill in the blanks" baby book gives dog lovers the same opportunity to chart their puppies growth and progress, as parents of infants do with their baby books.

Now, as your puppy grows, you can document:
  •  Where the puppy was born
  •  The birth parents names and breeds
  •  Who the puppy resembles
  •  Where the puppy was adopted from
  •  The first meal
  •  The puppy's playmates
  •  When potty training took place
  •  Obedience school classes
  •  Favorite things to do
  •  What vitamins the puppy takes
  •  Medical records
  •  Medical emergencies and blunders
  •  And much more

There is a keepsake pocket for the first rabies tag after it expires, a page where you can place your puppy's paw prints, a pocket to keep the adoption papers, a placeholder for an adoption announcement card, a first aid kit list, and picture placeholders throughout the book. You will be able to write what you did with your puppy on special days throughout the calendar year from New Years day to Hanukkah and Christmas -- 23 occasions in all.

What advice would you give budding writers?

 Writing is very personal. You have to be brave to delve into the land of fantasy or nonfiction, scope out your book and write it. Even if you don’t have any writing experience whatsoever. You build a bridge to get to the other side, regardless if you have building skills or not. The desire has to be there—burning through your brain.

 The most important advice I can give is to backpedal away from anyone who tries to clip your wings. Those people who cruelly make snide remarks about your writing efforts. People you thought were your friends, but when they discover you have delved into a new hobby or pastime, they make fun of you.

 Those are not your friends. If they happen to be your husband/wife/father/ mother/lover/partner/boyfriend/girlfriend/sibling – you get my drift – divorce may be involved, depending on how much this new passion means to you.

I’ve had people ask me why I continue to write when I don’t make a lot of money off my efforts. I cock my head like a dog and ask them: What else would I do? This is what I do. I create worlds, characters, situations. I could NOT stop writing because there’s so much flinging around in my head it would take me eons to write everything I long to write.

Align yourself with people who support you. People who cherish you and think what you are doing is awesome. Find a critique group, or an online group that will help you through the process. Once you finish your first book you will most likely be thirsting to write another, then another.

Take online and in-person classes. Educate yourself. No money? Take your butt to the library and ask a librarian where you can find books about writing. Be specific so you find exactly what you need.

When you finish your book, find an editor in your book genre. If you’re writing fantasy, you do not want to hire an editor who edits poetry. Don’t hire your high school or college English teacher! You need a book editor! There’s a vast difference, so look into the different types of editors and where to find them. They are a click away.

To date she has 12 published novels that consists of three series (cozy mystery, YA science fiction/fantasy, and adult shape-shifter), a dystopian, and a sci-fi romance adventure. The Last Dog, a dystopian novel set in 2086 is closely related to the Covid/Corona pandemic!

Her former day job as an award-winning technical writer (34 years) played a major role in her fiction writing – she is detailed oriented, the organizational queen of the known universe, and never misses a deadline.
