Thank you for the opportunity to be a guest on your blog Ashley! I live in beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with my husband Doug and our cat Braveheart. Working full-time keeps me busy along with serving in various ministry positions at my church that have included prayer, teaching and serving as an elder. I love animals, music and nature. And I am humbled and amazed to have written two books. Sometimes God has dreams for us that we know nothing about!
What started out as a simple desire to preserve the stories of my extraordinary cat Knickerbocker, turned into something far greater than I would have ever imagined. My first book, He Was Never a Cat: Knick’s Story, My Story, Your Story, became an incredible adventure as I honed my writing skills and formed lasting relationships throughout the writing, publishing and marketing process.

Help Support Education & Literacy
Room to Read is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and enabling global education by establishing libraries and schools, publishing and distributing local language children's books, training teachers and providing long-term educational support for girls to pursue and complete their secondary education.
In the developing world, 42% of girls are not enrolled in school and do not have access to education. Worldwide, nearly 500 million girls and women are illiterate, two-thirds the total illiterate population. We believe that world change starts with educated children. $250 will cover all of the necessary education expenses for one girl for one year. Our goal is to raise $1,250 to give the gift of education and literacy to five beautiful girls. Please join us in supporting their Girls’ Education Program.
