Ahh, Friday, my second favorite F word… Food is my first favorite people so chill. Ok, yes I do have a foul mouth but hey, it’s better than having Fowl Language, or maybe not since I thought they were absolutely hysterical this week along with […]

I have been asked, why did you decide to write a book? When I was in the 7th grade, I had an English teacher who made writing fun. By 8th grade, I lost that passion because I thought I was a terrible writer (just needed glasses). I hid the secret of wanting to write from everyone I knew. It wasn’t going to be for me. But that secret never left me. I wrote little stories and kept them hidden from others.
It wasn’t until I had been home for a year by myself and had a 5 month old that I realized I needed an outlet. So my blog started. I wrote without anyone seeing it but kept going. It felt great and like I was meant to be a writer. I found my tribe and my writing improved. More people saw my writing and reached out to me telling me I impacted them. That was great motivation for the days I felt like throwing in the towel.
Tara is my giant beast baby. Anyone who knows her can tell you she’s a lap dog in a 100lb body. She’s also very protective. When we would trail, Tara would become a different dog. You could see she was worried and truly wanted to find the missing person. Relief would wash over her when she found her subject. The story of Tara trailing kept popping in my head. It took almost a year for me to put it on paper. Her story is a unique one. Something many people don’t know the dogs can even do.
Tara needs your help though. While we tried to work with publishers, it wasn’t the right path. Tara and I went back to the start and got on the right trail and decided to self-publish. It’s not an easy or cheap process. We want to put Tara’s book in the hands of little ones everywhere. Even a $5 pledge can help print our book.
We want to thank our family and friends for your support. Mr. Hound has been there picking me up when I try to give up. Meemaw and Pappy Hound have helped push this to the next level. Mini has laughed at my silly illustrations and loved hearing the book. I also want to thank our amazing friends from Inland Empire Bloodhounds, without all of you, we never would have trained Tara.
Thank you to everyone who believes in this book.
