I'm doing my best to make the world a better place for animals. As a pet product advisor and animal lifestyle consultant, I've been a pet industry authority for the past 15 years.

Several years ago, I started a website known as - this site has become one of the industry leaders in the pet industry with millions of visitors every year. In 2008, I brought this knowledge into the business world and am a consultant to corporations seeking out ways to develop the best new products. I work closely with companies to help bring awareness to high-quality, cost-effective and "pet-approved" products and services. I’m also a member of the National Canine Cancer Foundation and am on the product review board for their Seal of Approval and Seal of Excellence.

In my spare time, I love to write. I’m the author of several books, including the popular, Conquering the Food Chain: Living Amongst Animals (Without Becoming One), all of which are available in Barnes & Noble bookstores nationwide, as well as online at Many of my stories have been translated into other languages and are helpful in raising funds for animal rescue associations.

My stories, articles and reviews can be found in such print publications as Cat Fancy, Pacific Yachting, The Arabian Horse Times, Today's AZ Woman, Pets Illustrated, Jackson Parents Magazine, Be Noticed, and online at many popular websites. I’m currently at work on my second novel in the Shepherd Series. Look for “Shepherd’s Moon” to be released in September, 2011 and “Shepherd’s Blood” to be released in October, 2011.
