About Sunny -
Award-Winning Author

The country book mobile always ran out of dog, cat, and horse stories by mid-summer. Young Sunny’s voracious reading devoured every book the poor librarian could find. When there were no more stories, Sunny began to write them. Childish passion for animals, reading, writing, and learning, matured into a mesmerizing adult story-teller.

Dovetailing her expertise and passion for education through story-telling, Sunny’s prolific and didactic weaving of multi-layered tales with powerful themes create messages all readers can benefit from. She fuels her skills as an empathetic behaviorist, descriptive writer, and spell-binding speaker. She also shares her vast experiences to help humans understand the relationships between people and animals-- to save more animal lives.

Sunny lives with rescued dogs, cats and parakeets. Their yard is a Certified Backyard Habitat for birds, squirrels, rabbits, pollinators, and anyone else with fur or feathers who wanders in.
