I'm an author and campaigner against the puppy trade, which is often called puppy farming. I live some of the time in England with my husband, Michel and other times we can be found in south-west France. Wherever we are, our dogs are too: Renae, Twinkle and Cerise, three miniature schnauzers, three very different characters. Cerise and Twinkle are both survivors of the brutal puppy breeding industry. Our first rescued 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.
Like other breeding dogs, ours lived an existence many humans won’t bear to think about given a chance. But their terrible past lies behind them these days and they’ve gone from having no home at all beyond a patch of concrete in a barn, to having two comfortable homes: one in England, a second in France. Life cannot get any better for these dogs and they have more than earned that pleasure.
I share our lives together in my writing and books with the aim of inspiring others to rescue dogs like them, and to join the campaign to end the cruel puppy industry.
In addition to my books and blog, I also regularly contribute to other publications to continue spreading the word about the puppy trade.
