Writers & Other Animals
In 2014, Sheila Boneham birthed a blog called Writers & Other Animals. An author herself, Sheila’s goal was to promote her books and those of other authors whose stories share a common theme: Animals. Rather than post a series of book reviews, she asked authors to send their creative writings, be they fiction, nonfiction, poetry. She would then post the writing along with blurbs about the author and his or her latest book.
Earlier this month I sent Sheila four posts. The first–a short vignette about Galen’s unique rules for playing fetch–was published today. You can read it here. The others will be released in the next several months–I’ll let you know when.
(Readers of my old blog, she’s a dork, may remember the story; I consider it an oldie but goodie.)
