The first paragraph. Uuugh. It always comes out sounding stupid.

I will be revitalizing my old writing blog shortly. As you can see I had stopped posting almost two months ago (as paying work picked up and I had less time to devote to blogging), but it does have links to many of my articles so I thought I would share it as a starting point.

Have you ever gotten a bad review on any of your written work? How do you react to a bad review?

Author and Animal Advocate
Introduction

Author, animal advocate, entrepreneur, and closet geek pretty much sums up who I am.

I have always loved animals & planned on turning that love into a career as a veterinarian until I learned that being a vet also meant sometimes having to put animals down.

With this new insight I turned my interests towards rescue and advocacy. Little did I realize that this path would lead to just as much, if not more, heartache and sadness, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

I have always enjoyed writing and educating and soon connected these two interests with my passion for animals becoming not only an author, but a strong, outspoken advocate for those I write about in my articles. I am an award winning poet, content developer and educator who regularly contributes to List My 5Associated Content and Hubpages.

I surround myself with rescues, all of which just seem to ‘find their way to me’. My household currently consists of 3 dogs & 7 cats with an occasional foster thrown in to keep things interesting. I enjoy participating in animal transports and do so as often as I can fit them in to my schedule. Scheduling is sometimes tight, especially in the late spring to early fall seasons when animal events are at their peak.

I participate in many events from awareness to adoption events, doing everything from photography for the event, working booths, writing PR articles, helping with fundraising and so much more. Working these events is definitely a highlight for me.

A former animal rescue manager, shelter volunteer, dog training participant, and dog trainer student, I know a lot about dogs & cats and their behaviors.  More of my writings can be found at DogsDeserveBetter.comtheWMPetConnection and on my own Web site.

My animal related articles can be found all over the web and I currently have two different books under way. I hope to help educate the public on not only the best care for their pets, but also the main theme of my life – that ALL living things deserve respect, care and love.

I devour books, love to learn & explore, organize everything and completely enjoy taking on new projects (like our bathroom rennovation).

I surround myself with animals and nature and enjoy the refreshing, rejuvinating and revitalizing effects both have on me. Animals provide me not only companionship, but entertainment and education every day they allow me in their presence.
