Hi Jean, please tell us Five Secrets we may not know about Rescue My Heart or you, but will after today!
1) I spent 5 years volunteering for a local pug rescue. Experiences during that time have paved the way for Rescue My Heart.
2) I’m left-handed, but I bat, golf and cut with a scissors righty.
3) I love to sing, though I can’t carry a tune. Shhhh, don’t tell anybody.
4) The part about Alfred, the pug plucked from the kill shelter at Christmas, in the book really happened to me.
5) I have a grudge against selfish bicycle riders in Central Park. Hack Roberts’ character grew out of that personal peeve of mine. I have seen people carted away in ambulances who were hit by bikes.
One smug veterinarian on a bike runs into one sharp-tongued dog walker, literally. Injury leads to insult. Adversion leads to attraction. Pug rescue brings them together. A funny, sarcastic, heart-warming ride.
