I am an author and campaigner against puppy farming and founder of the charity Schnauzerfest which pays for veterinary treatment for dogs saved from puppy farms and other terrible backgrounds. All royalties from my books are donated to the charity.
I live with my husband in south-west France, having travelled regularly between the UK and France for 2 decades. Wherever we are, our dogs are too: Renae, Cerise, Albert Claude and Angel miniature schnauzers, 4 very different characters.
Cerise, Angel and Albert Claude are survivors of the brutal puppy breeding industry. Our first ex-breeding dog, Susie-Belle was, and remains the inspiration for my books and writing; she died in November 2015 after being with us for four years. We sadly lost her sister Twinkle, subject of Saving One More in July 2019.
In addition to my books and blog, I also regularly contribute to other publications to continue spreading the word about puppy farming.
