If You Need to Write It, Someone Needs to Read It

We all love our dogs and there are thousands of books celebrating the joys of our dogs. But the honest reality is that they live very short lives. When I went through the intense and ultimately fatal illness of my first dog, I felt all alone. I often wrote through my feelings. And after a few years, the thought of writing a book to help others through a very difficult period in their lives emerged.

I really believe that if you need to write something, there is someone out there who needs to read it. I often process life best via reading stories. There is something about the intimacy of read words that creates a level of acceptance about what we are dealing with in our own internal struggles. To see someone else in the world, experiencing what we think and feel brings a comfort and perspective that can be the catalyst to change.
