A Christmas Tail


Animal and Holiday Fiction

Date Published: November 16, 2023

Publisher: Acorn Publishing



It’s Christmas Eve in western Kansas and a snowstorm is gaining strength as Bear Bailey, a devoted Great Pyrenees, tries to comfort his beloved owner Mary. She’s in hot water with the local business villain, and Bear’s earlier altercation with this miser only seemed to make things worse. When Mary blurts out that she wishes for a different life, Bear blames himself for her despair and runs away.

Meanwhile Jiff, a Labrador patiently waiting for his own human to meet him at the Rainbow Bridge, sees Bear shivering alone in the blizzard. Knowing Bear won’t survive the night without intervention, Jiff agrees to act as Bear’s guardian angel on Earth. He is determined to show the Great Pyrenees what the lives of the humans around him would have been like without his presence over the years.

A holiday “tail” for those who love the season but feel the deep loss of loved ones (both furry and human), It’s a Wonderful Dog shines a light on the power of love and community, and reminds us that miracles do exist.


What is the hardest part of writing your books?


I think learning to tune out the outside world and being more devoted to the story I’m writing than what might be going on in my mind as I’m thinking about what my day has ahead. I have found though, that writing without distraction is like a muscle. The more I practice writing, the easier it gets to dwell in the story without distraction.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?


My husband always teases me that my Ipod music is two generations ahead of my age. I love old standards and big band music – I’m so sentimental about my grandparents and music I remember hearing them listen to when I was a young girl. I also love Broadway musicals and especially movie scores and soundtracks. Now that I’m thinking about it, I think it allows me to imagine stories as I’m listening. 



Do you have critique partners or beta readers?


I have the loveliest beta readers. They’re honest, yet very kind and gentle about their suggestions. It makes it much easier to keep writing.



What book are you reading now?


I’m just starting a new one. For my birthday, a sweet friend gifted me a beautiful book, “A Velocity of Being – Letters to a Young Reader”. It’s a collection of letters addressed “to a young reader” written by all sorts of people from different backgrounds that speak to the power of reading. My friend couldn’t stop tearing up as she was explaining it to me, it touched her heart so much.







How did you start your writing career?


It’s a Wonderful Dog – A Christmas Tail is starting my writing career. It’s been a dream come true for me to come this far with professional writing and one that I hope opens a door to a whole lifetime as an author.



Tell us about your next release.


There is a character within the book who was so supportive to the main character, Mary Bailey that my editor pointed out and I agreed, she needed her own book.  I’m almost done with her story. She’s really touching my heart because her background is trickier than Mary’s and she still has a helping spirit with others. She’s very noble even though she tries to hide it. There is a family in this book who will be the focus of the third book before the fourth finishes the series up.


Thank you so much for your interest in “It’s a Wonderful Dog – A Christmas Tail.” I appreciate the generosity and time you put into the above questions. If you need clarification or anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Wishing you the most wonderful holiday season!


Kind regards,
