Thanks to my publisher, Penguin, I am fortunate enough to be part of the Read Humane event along with five other mass market paperback authors. All of us write stories involving animals and we take great pride in that. We believe they indeed live up to the “Read Humane” initiative. Animals are treated with dignity and respect between the covers of our books.
