I've been writing about dogs for nearly 30 years. Take a peek at my newest bookReporting For Duty, True Stories of Wounded Veterans and Their Service Dogs.
Freelance Writing and Photography--Specializing in Animals
I'm madly in love with horses. Guilty as charged! I find great energy in the presence of these amazing, magical, soulful animals. Photographing the freedom they symbolize is a challenge that never tires me.
For nearly 30 years, I have been photographing and writing about dogs--their history, origin, and the purpose for which they were originally bred. I've covered nutrition, exercise, training, genetics, breed-specific diseases, and cutting-edge veterinary research. Plus, I'm endlessly curious about why we love dogs and why they love us unconditionally in return. Why are we eternally devoted to dogs? Why do we grieve so deeply when it's time to say good-bye? Do dogs grieve? (A few of the thoughts rattling around in my brain at any given moment.) It's also why I love photography--capturing a nano-second in time that otherwise would have gone unnoticed or simply been a memory in the heart.
Have you ever met a bad*** barn cat you didn't love? Not me! I love sheep and chickens and flowers, too, and most anything to do with mother nature. Take a peek at some of these fun photos.
Dogs are my life and passion! My goal is capturing the unique energy and personality within each dog--the soul inside the endless contrasts of breed, size, personality, and scruffy coats.
