Every once in a while I do guest and/or interview blogs elsewhere. On the theory that not everyone here is there (and the other way around), I tend to post such things at Wordplay, too. Hope it gives you grins!
(This particular interview first posted at Writers & Other Animals.)
Tell us a little about your background…
Oh, it’s complicated. Start with one animal lover, determined to become a vet. Life happens. End up in Environmental Education, and then in a stunningly remote area of the Appalachian mountains. Hand-built log cabin, a hundred acres…dogs, wood stove, and endless tromps in the woods together. Enough people to generate lost and dumped dogs, not enough to have a shelter, so UPS would drop dogs off at our place for rescue. And with the vet hours away, I found myself dealing with mange, broken bones, snakebite, varmint damage…even gunshot.
