optin-imgThe perfect gift for animal lovers

Great for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas gift giving.

 

Only $14.99, this enchanting collection of real people’s stories sleeping with their animals –from dogs and cats to bunnies and birds (not to mention livestock, rodents and the wouldn’t believe – a boa constrictor!).

 

Cat Naps And Doggie Snorts is not a joke book! While you will certainly read humorous anecdotes and absurd passages of human and animal interactions, this collection covers the range of emotional interactions. Reviewers have likened it to Chicken Soup for the Soul for its wealth of touching stories.

I’m addressing two fascinating groups this month — The Metropolitan Club on November 9 and the Fisherman’s Wharf Rotary Club on November 15.
The Metropolitan Club www.MetropolitanclubSF.org, almost a century old, occupies a registered historic building near Union Square. It serves women with a variety of athletic facilities, library and dining room. My contact there, Claudia Feurey, has asked me to speak about writing about one’s family or one’s own life story at their monthly luncheon.

A much different group, the Fisherman’s Wharf Rotary Club, www.rotary-fishermanswharf.org, holds a weekly breakfast at the Franciscan restaurant for business people and entrepreneurs. Club president Tresa Eyres whom I knew from Women in Consulting asked me to focus on writing about business and self-publishing.

These should be fun.
