From the Author:
My love for animals started when I was a young child and stems from a very long line of animal-lovers. My family always had a pet in the home and my grandparents lived on a farm that I visited quite often. As a child, I showed horses and assisted with chores on the farm. I remember helping my parents to nurse wild and stray animals back to health and I was the child who always brought home strays and left food outside, so no animal would go hungry. As a matter of fact, I still do this. I cannot imagine life without the love and compassion of our furry friends.

Why did you write the series and how are the books educational for children? I wrote The Pom Tales Series for a number of reasons. I wanted to express my love for this wonderful little breed, while at the same time help to raise money for canine charities. I also wanted to help children to learn to read (and like to read) through the adventures of the characters. Each story has a message to help build good character, whether it be always telling the truth, learning from one’s mistakes, or respecting police officers. Reading for meaning and learning is emphasized.
