A Second Book Comes to Fruition

I think it was February 2018 that I intended to make a start on this ‘blog’ and here we are in late June 2019 before a single word has materialised! Currently I’m feeling pretty cheerful about the fact that my second book for children, Smelly Ellie, is now out there on Amazon. Of course, I really hope that young children enjoy it, but I also hope that it makes people think about adopting a Shelter dog rather than buying from a breeder. We, that’s me and husband, Alan, are active volunteers at our local dog refuge here in France and know at first hand that they are all normal, adorable dogs who have had the bad luck to find themselves abandoned.

Our own dog, Ellie, was adopted from a French refuge in 2012 and she was the inspiration for my book. I’m not a trained artist but I had great fun making the illustrations for the book and our middle son, Joe, made a great job of doing a few interesting things with the text here and there. If you read my book let me know what you think. And I love to hear about other dogs that have been adopted from a shelter, if you happen to have one, or two, or three…
