In every life there is a time to let go of the past, and move forward towards the future. When I first wrote Scruggs and Samantha, How a Shelter Dog and Kitten Saved Cinderella’s Marriage, it started as a series of short stories about my wonderful dog, Scruggs, and the very special black kitten, Samantha. Somehow it grew into a story not only about my animals, but also a love story.
            My Prince Charming, my husband of twenty-five years, and law partner for more than twenty-six are getting up there in age. So too, are my animals. As you see, Scruggs is getting white around the muzzle, and Samantha has grown into a very rotund black Queen of the Universe.
            Sadly, some of the animals in the book have moved on to be with their Maker. Caesar is gone more than three years now, lost to cancer. Tara, my wonderful, intelligent, patient Rottweiler is no more than twelve years-old, making her a very senior citizen. She has had multiple health issues in this last year, and on God knows how much longer she will be with us. I pray every day that she is still happy to spend time here on earth with her human companions.
So, now seems to be the right time to share this book with everyone before Scruggs family is lost. This blog will release the entire book over these coming weeks and days. However, if you wish to purchase the book, you may either contact me directly at, or purchase the book in any of the formats through Amazon. At the end of each blog entry will be a direct link to Amazon for your convenience.
Scruggs and I hope you enjoy our journey through finding love again, while dealing with the day-to-day ups and downs of living.

Therefore, it is with peace and love that I send this book out to all of you.
