The Story of Mamma Cat—A Sanctuary Tale

The Story of Mamma Cat—A Sanctuary Tale This happened about 18 months ago. Mamma Cat was one of the invisible animals that I wrote about in a post last month. We have a lot of animals on our sanctuary—dogs, potbelly pigs, a horse, wild pigs, and even a wild boar. We rescued one cat, but […]

What issues? You ask. Prejudice against people of color, against different religions, and against people of […]

Why Indie Authors Fail

Why Indie Authors Fail I’m not saying indie authors aren’t making it; in fact, some of them are doing amazingly well. Every day it seems as if another success story is in the news, not to mention that indie authors have staked permanent spots on the bestseller lists. It has taken a few years, but […]

Sanctuary News

Sanctuary News It’s me, Dennis. By now ya’ll should know that if I’m doing the post it’s either because there is something funny to tell, or, sad news. Unfortunately, today it’s sad news. We lost one of our own last week. Her name was Pearl. She arrived at the sanctuary long before I did, so […]

  • This blog will be a little different from many you see. Contrary to the characters in my books, I don’t really kill people, or catch those who do, so the blogs might be about reading, or writing, or animals. These are the things I have great passion for. It might also contain posts about food, or ancestry, or substance abuse. My oldest son is a great cook. My daughter is a genealogist (rootsintheboot.com) and my youngest son is a recovering drug addict. He has been clean for three years, and runs a rehab center (intoactionrecovery.com).

    I hope you enjoy the posts, and please let me know what you think.

    Ciao,
