"The Dog Who Walked Me"
"The Dog Who Walked Me" is my first non-fiction book. NYC literary
agent, Bob Mecoy, is now in the exciting process of submitting
my story to publishers.
It's about my dog, Gracie, who became my caregiver after my spinal cord injury,
the unexpected devastating effects on my marriage, and my insane cat who actually kept me sane throughout.
Thank you to all of the readers
who responded so strongly with tender emotion and laughter to the 3 columns below. These are the columns from which
the story was born:
Amazing Gracie's Devotion
Someone To Watch Over Me
The Cat With Chutzpah

wrote one lousy sentence of a novel." Instead say, "I started my novel
