My Crazy Family

Posted on February 10, 2018 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (4)

On April 10, 2018, my story, "It's All About the Dogs" will appear in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul Book: My Crazy Family. It's a humorous story about my dad's love for dogs. In fact, I attribute my dad's longevity (88 years old) to having a man's best friend. He loves walking with his dog every morning and it's not only good for his heart, but his soul. Those who really don't understand the canine-human connection, might think my dad is overly "zealous"of his four-footed friends, but those of us who know him best (his family and friends) realize he's not crazy; he's just a dog lover.

As an author, it's always fun to walk into a bookstore and see your work, especially when it comes to Chicken Soup for the Soul. I'm a regular contributor to the series and it's always exciting to read one of my stories or have someone tell you that they read your story and it made a difference in their lives. That's all the appreciation that an author ever needs.

I'm grateful to have a story in the new Chicken Soup book "Miracles and More." My story is titled "CPR 101." It's the only time I ever had to use CPR after all my years in the medical field, but it left a lasting impression on me. The book will be available on and bookstores near you, including Barnes & Noble. 

If you'd like to write for Chicken Soup, I've written an ebook that explains the process and how to write a winning story. My Kindle book is "Secrets to Writing a Winning Chicken Soup Story" on 


Book Signing in Lititz, PA

One of the greatest times as an author is connecting with your readers. Recently I had the opportunity to do that in Lititz Springs Park in Lititz, Pennsylvania for a book signing for my story "Our Two Maries" in the newest Chicken Soup for the Soul Book: The Dog Really Did That? Our fur babies are sometimes part therapist and part friend, but always a welcome a sight at the end of a long day. They listen to our problems and plop their heads in our lap and sometimes they come to our aid -- physically, emotionally, and mentally as was the case in my story. 

A big thank you to all who came out and shared your dog stories with me. It was a fun evening. 

Until next time...
