AMAZING AUTHORS

FEATURED AUTHOR: LOUIS SPIRITO
Author of GIMME SHELTER: A Damaged Pit Bull, An Angry Man and How They Saved Each Other

To this day I don't know why, but I kept a diary of Tanner's first year with us. It was my wife's idea to turn it into a book. I resisted until I realized that in telling how an abused rescue dog helped me finally come to terms with my chronic anger, I'd be doing two important things: I’d be shining a light on a serious problem - anger - that plagues so many people, and I’d be pleading the case for a host of unjustly maligned pit bulls and other “vicious” dogs sitting on death row in shelters across the country.

 

FEATURED AUTHOR: PATRICK BETTENDORF
AUTHOR OF RUBY’S ROAD

When Ruby's Tale was finished and released, neither Ruby's life, nor her career, were finished. She wasn't about to retire. Her adventures and involvement in the community and around the country increased at a breathtaking pace. Then there were the letters from readers. Not only were they from all over the USA, but from around the world. At last count, Ruby has readers in 16 countries. The letters had nice things to say about "Ruby's Tale," but what touched me most was how people opened up and shared stories, or somehow related to the book. I read about their dogs, their families, and difficulties and joys. A common complaint I did have was that the book was too short and folks just wanted it to go on. Now with Ruby's Road, her journey continues.

 

FEATURED AUTHOR: MARIE-CLAUDE ROY & CAROLE VILLENEUVE
AUTHOR OF: CANINE ANGELS

When two people decide to write a book about dogs, obviously it’s because they love them unconditionally. I, (Carole Villeneuve), adore dogs. My late father, André, passed on to me his love for these charming animals. For as long as I can remember, my home has included a dog – each one always treated with love and respect, and each a full member of the family.

 

FEATURED AUTHOR: JENNIFER SKIFF
AUTHOR OF: THE DIVINITY OF DOGS: True stories of
miracles inspired by man’s best friend

It wasn’t until I edited my first book, God Stories, and received thousands of stories about people’s connection with the Divine, that I realized my personal experience with dogs was shared with countless others. People wrote and told me about the private moments that changed their life. Their stories were profound and amazing – the type that warm your heart and make you cry out loud. They catapulted me into other people’s trials, leaving me with a sense of appreciation for all I have. I decided these were stories that needed to be told, to document the divinity of dogs and to give us a library of inspiring life lessons.

 

FEATURED AUTHOR: KEN FOSTER
AUTHOR OF:I’m A GOOD DOG: Pit Bulls, America’s
Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet

When my memoir The Dogs Who Found Me came out, so many people were moved to buy it because there was a pit bull on the cover--and that was their dog. They had never seen a dog like theirs on a book cover before. After hearing from all of these wonderful pit bull owners, I wanted to do a book that looked at the history and image of the pit bull. But no one would publish it. It didn't matter that The Dogs Who Found Me had sold so well with a pit bull on the cover. I even had one publisher tell me that members of their staff had threatened to quit if they published it.

 

FEATURED AUTHOR: MICHELLE SATHE
Author of PIT STOPS and PIT STOPS 2

It was her freckled pink nose and sweet kisses that got me. I was a reporter covering a story on The Brittany Foundation, a no-kill dog rescue in Agua Dulce, California, when I met Loren. She sprang from her kennel, hugged my legs, and gave me the first of what would be many smooches.
