    WALKING WITH PEETY: The Dog Who Saved My Life

    Eric was 150 pounds overweight, sick and on 15 different medications, including daily insulin injections for type-2 diabetes. After a lifetime of failed diet attempts, Eric went to a new doctor, who surprisingly prescribed a shelter dog. And that’s when Eric met Peety: an obese, middle-aged dog who, like Eric, had seen better days. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey together, forming a bond of brotherhood and unconditional love that forever changed their lives. Over the next year, just by going on walks, playing together, and eating a plant based diet, Eric lost 150 pounds, and Peety lost 25. As a result, Eric reversed his diabetes, got off all medications, and became happy and healthy for the first time in his life, eventually reconnecting with and marrying his high school sweetheart.

    Walking with Peety is an inspiring true American comeback story about recovery, redemption, and achieving dreams, made possible by the unconditional love between a man whose life was over and a dog who who inspired him to become the person he always wanted to be. The storyline of this book also includes practical advice, based on modern scientific knowledge about overcoming obesity and chronic disease through healthy nutrition, that you can follow to once again become the happy and healthy person you once were, or the awesome person who you’ve always wanted to be. This book is intended to inspire you to make small changes today that will help you optimize your weight, health, happiness, purpose and life’s meaning tomorrow. Walking with Peety is the perfect read for anyone ready to make a change in their life, and for everyone who knows the joy, love, and hope that a dog can bring.

    Priceless Penny Book Cover

    A 2016 Story Monster Approved Book

    Priceless Penny chronicles one dog’s amazing journey from solo stray to pampered pooch. Penny was abandoned by her previous owners and left to roam the streets of California alone. She was soon taken to a local high kill shelter. Penny’s life was in great danger and her unique looks made her undesirable in the eyes of would-be adopters.

    Penny’s allotted time at the shelter was quickly drawing to a close. She had nowhere to go, no one to love. Then, one day, a woman entered the shelter and discovered Penny. Little did Penny know that she was about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.

    This is an uplifting, true story as told from Penny’s perspective. Children will fall in love with the beautiful illustrations and cheer Penny on in her quest to find a forever home. Priceless Penny is a wonderful book for the emergent reader.

    BORN TO LOVE: Keiki & Lia Thriller, a Lei Crime Kindle World Novella

    Available only on Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/Lei-Crime-Kindle-Novella-Thriller-ebook/dp/B01H2P5IJI/

    Can the past unlock the future and love preserve a life?

    A puppy’s job is to learn. Keiki relishes the sights, sounds and smells of her world, but people frustrate and confuse her. Why do humans control all the good stuff?

    Lia Corazon channels her energy and emotions into the dogs she trains in her North Texas kennel. She especially enjoys four-month-old Keiki’s enthusiasm, but the pup’s owner makes her uneasy. There’s something very…wrong about him.

    When a vicious storm, violent flood, and scary creatures menace Keiki, her Rottweiler bravery comes through. But what can a good-dog do when a human enemy threatens? Keiki must use all she’s learned if she’s to save Lia from a killer.

    Q&A WITH THE AUTHOR

    How does your story links to the Lei Crime Series?

    The novella is a prequel to the Lei Crime Series. Set in Texas, the story begins about two years before Blood Orchids, offering readers the backstory of Keiki, the Rottweiler.

    In BORN TO LOVE, readers get a glimpse of what shaped the young Keiki as a puppy, and learn about experiences and special training that helped her eventually become a police dog. She learns that even a good-dog–and her person, Lia–are not infallible, both need love, and together they are stronger than apart.

    Lia and Keiki alternate viewpoint chapters in BORN TO LOVE, but Keiki does NOT talk, not in human terms anyway. Keiki communicates via body language, scent signals, and the occasional vocalization, in the same way that real dogs communicate. She does have thoughts–pure made-up fun speculation!

    What major theme comes across the clearest in your story? Is this a theme found consistently in your other works?

    I’m a certified animal behavior consultant for dogs and cats, so pet themes are the focus of both my nonfiction and fiction books. My September Day thriller series features a strong but damaged female protagonist and her canine service dog. Not only is Shadow a major character (he has his own viewpoint chapters, too), he’s saved her life many times over, and helped her heal emotionally. There are many other dog and cat characters in the series including a trained Maine Coon cat–and sometimes readers win contests to include THEIR pet in the story. Also, love is a major theme–not romance per se, but issues of trust, commitment, loss, betrayal, and the search for love and family. These also figure prominently in BORN TO LOVE.

    Tell us a little about your main character. Why do you think readers will like her?

    I’d already fallen for the adult Keiki in the Lei Crime Series. In BORN TO LOVE, Keiki embodies the typical four-month-old baby-dog attitude, full of wide-eyed wonder, curiosity, and non-stop energy. She’s not yet gained the confidence that comes with experience, though, and is overwhelmed by new or scary situations. Keiki also has to temper her independent nature to accept help–and receive love–from her person, Lia. I’ve fallen in love with them both, and can’t wait to write more Keiki and Lia adventures.

    “MY OLD DOG: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts”

    Author: Laura T. Coffey
    Photographer: Lori Fusaro
    Foreword by: Neko Case
    Afterwords by: Dr. Marty Becker and Mikkel Becker

    Genre: A non-fiction celebration of the happiest dogs on Earth and the people who saved them.

    Book description: “No Dog Should Die Alone” was the attention-grabbing — and heart-stirring — headline of journalist Laura T. Coffey’s TODAY show website story about photographer Lori Fusaro’s work with senior shelter pets. While generally calm, easy, and already house-trained, these animals often represent the highest-risk population at shelters. With gorgeous, joyful photographs and sweet, funny, true tales of “old dogs learning new tricks,” Coffey and Fusaro show that adopting a senior can be even more rewarding than choosing a younger dog. You’ll meet endearing elders like Marnie, the irresistible shih tzu who has posed for selfies with Tina Fey, James Franco, and Betty White; Remy, a soulful nine-year-old dog adopted by elderly nuns; George Clooney’s cocker spaniel, Einstein; Susie, the funny little senior dog who got adopted by “Humans of New York” creator Brandon Stanton; and Bretagne, the last known surviving search dog from Ground Zero. They may be slower moving and a tad less exuberant than puppies, but these pooches prove that adopting a senior brings immeasurable joy, earnest devotion, and unconditional love.
