Tilly's Tale will be featured on Wild About Pets, Radio Show

I'm really excited to hear that Brian (Harry Porter) has been contacted by Susan Frank, the host of the Wild About Pets Radio Show, who was interested in doing a feature on Tilly's Tale, and following discussions with her, Brian has agreed to do an interview with her on her show on 30th April at Noon, CST. He will be talking about Tilly's Tale of course, and also the other dogs in the pack. What makes this so exciting is that the show will go out live, and will interact with the Wild About Pets website which will carry pictures of the book, and Tilly and the other dogs in my little pack of rescued dogs, so people can see what they're hearing about as they listen to the show. After the broadcast the show will be accessible through the Wild About Pets archive on their website so anyone who misses the live broadcast can catch it later.

Tilly is a very special little dog. She was unwanted, unkempt and barely recognizable as a dog when we first found her. Her story is a canine tale of a triumph against the odds. From being a 'scruffy mutt' in a rescue sanctuary she has become a star at agility and search and rescue work and is 'pack leader' to our family of rescued dogs. I hope her story will go some way towards raising awareness of the plight of abandoned, abused and neglected dogs around the world and also the wonderful work performed by those who staff the various rescue centers and dog sanctuaries who care for them and help to find them loving caring homes.

Dancing around the world

This is a piece I did almost a year ago for a dance program. I just came upon it and felt the need to share.

Another new faerie

I have been trying to update my collection of faeries. I will be posting them all on merchandise on my store front at http://www.zazzle.com/mandja+gifts

I will also be featured on a website later this year, so I want to make sure I have some new images available just for that occasion. I will make sure to keep you all updated about the featured artist spot when it gets closer and I have more information.

Give a gift that keeps on giving ... give a book.
