I recently wrote another children’s book. The illustrations are finished and I am in the process of putting the book together to prepare for printing.
I’m excited about this book because of how I ended up writing it. I occasionally do volunteer work for a group in my hometown called Pause 4 All Paws (find them on Facebook, Pause 4 All Paws). They are an animal rescue group and do wonderful and hard, and sometimes heart-breaking, work. This group rescues animals from bad situations or sad situations, finds foster care and/or adoption. They do fundraising events and help people who are looking to adopt or looking to find their pet a new home.
This group is made up of a wonderful group of people, one who is co-founder of the group, Johanna Stock. One day, Johanna and I were having a conversation about my children’s books and I jokingly said I should write a book about a little girl who rescues animals (based on Johanna's daughter). Johanna’s daughter is a fun little girl who loves helping her mama with events and loves the animals.
After our conversation, I sat down with my laptop to work on another book I’m in the process of writing but I couldn’t concentrate. Instead, I brought up a new sheet and began typing. I was so excited about this story!
The book is called Annie to the Rescue. I don’t want to give the story away but it involves a little girl named Annie and two dogs. This book will be dedicated to Johanna, her daughter, and Pause for All Pause. I am an avid animal lover (and called a “foster failure” as my husband and I have adopted two fosters and rescued two others).
I look forward to the printing of this book (look for it this Spring!!) and in the meantime, check out Amazon for my other two books, Hammy’s New Home and If I Were a Duck!
