About Me
I have mostly worked with animals. I raised baby animals at the Charles Towne Landing Animal Forest, started my Animal Control career in 1976 and faced many challenges and adventures. I managed animal shelters and boarding kennels, SPCA chapters, and a Regional Representative of the American Donkey and Mule Society and Treasurer of the Lowcountry Dairy Goat Society, staff writer for "The Nashville Graphic" in North Carolina.
Type of Writer
Mainly, I keep it simple and write from experience. I have worked with animals most of my life and my favorite subject.
Writing Style
Having worked for so many police departments, my style is quite to the point and factual, not with flowery descriptions.
I belong to the Lowcountry House Rabbit Society, Greenpeace, PETA, The Humane Society of the United States, World Wildlife Fund, World Conservation and Wildlife Rescue. I write letters and sign petitions for animal rights.
