It all began on a hot June day in Madera, California. My mother and I were driving from Fresno to about 20 miles north, to look at some used slate stepping stones that had been advertised in the newspaper. Mom convinced me to go with her because I was feeling depressed about a recent break-up with a girlfriend. She said it would be good for me to get out of the house for a while. Little did I know just how good it would be!
Recently Joe Ozier of Fresno published his first book, a family and children's book called Shea's Lounge. It is based on the true story of an amazing dog named Shea, or as it says on the book cover, a runaway dog who found a forever home. Joe has written several plays in the past and been involved in theater and film for years. He also owns his own dog training business called Way of a Dog. Details on how to win a copy of Shea's Lounge at the end of this post.
