Welcome to My Story

Human Footprint beside paw print in sand

How a little wiener dog named Ellie came into my life, saved me and inspired me to write her silly little stories that will make a difference in this world.

Thank you for visiting my author page.  Sorry it is a little sparse on content right now, I will be getting it up to speed very soon.

I really look forward to sharing all the backstories of how I was inspired by a little wiener dog to become an author, establish a publishing company and introduce Ellie the Wienerdog to the world.

My hope is that all people, young and old, will be entertained and inspired, not only by the amazing books, but also in how they came to be.
