Author Stephanie Itle-Clark visited a Pennsylvania School for Read Across America on March 1st, and told us this: “The Read Across America Day event at Big Spring School District’s Mount Rock Elementary in Newville, PA was fantastic. I saw six grades of students (a little over 300 students) ranging from kindergarten to Grade Five during three different readings. The students were fun and engaged, especially when they found out that the real-life Tiffany who inspired the story had come from a puppy mill not far from the school. The older students participates in a reading as well as an interview panel. They asked about the theme of the book, the inspiration, and the writing, illustrating, and publishing process.”

 

Author Laura Eckroat is a schoolteacher who really gets into the spirit of the author visit. She tells us: “I so love doing author visits; they always remind me why I’m doing this writing thing. I bring books and sign them after the event. The kids love them, and they’re truly rewarding and FUN!!”

And here are some bonus pics of kids loving their books . . .

Ouzo the Greek

Super grateful for all the love, proper makes me smile. The local press asked for a photo of me and Mama with my book so they can also share the love. We attempted this, me and Mama snuggled up with said book in hand. Trouble was Mr Moussaka was not impressed with being left out so he refused to get out of shot, result, every photo we got included Mr Moussaka licking my personal area. Not quite the desired photo we were trying to achieve. (You can skip the rest and just scroll down, i.e. watch the video, it’s important to me … ta muchly x)

Press

However, this is what I really want to share. We are all equal yet it’s a tough old rock we all cohabit on.

Thank you to those that have bought my book but being the humble sort of chap that I am all profits…

Ouzo the Greek:
A Year in the Life of a Greek Rescue Dog

by Lisa Edwards

After being hit by a car and left for dead on the streets of Greece, I was rescued by my heroine and first love, Ermioni. With broken bones and open wounds so severe my flesh was beginning to rot, the only option was to amputate my leg.

Ermioni nursed me back to health and I lived for a time at the Diasozo Animal Rescue shelter. However, I was becoming depressed, as the healthier dogs were pushing me out of the way when there was food to be had.

My guardian angel continued to look out for me and share my story on social media all around the world, until one day I found my very own Mama and Papa, in little old England.

And this is where my story begins.

About the Author

Lisa Edwards lives in a quiet village in West Sussex, England. With their children grown, Lisa and her husband Michael decided the time had come to search for a new family dog. Having rescued pets in the past, there was no hesitation in deciding to ‘adopt’ rather than ‘shop’. Enter Ouzo the Greek, who joined Mrs. D, aka That Darned Cat, and more recently Mr. Moussaka. These three misfit second-hand pets completely changed Lisa’s life.

Lisa spent over a decade working as an Executive Assistant in secondary education, but gave it all up to start a new career, where she is now employed at an animal rescue organisation. She hopes to make a difference to those still looking for their forever home, as well as write about animals and animal causes on a freelance basis.

As for Ouzo, well Lisa and Michael didn’t just rescue a dog, they inadvertently stumbled across their best friend.
