Molly, The Dog With Diabetes

Molly, the Dog With Diabetes, is a true story about a dachshund mix dog, and her journey with diabetes.

Molly is my next door neighbor's dog, and I see her most mornings when I walk in to work. I didn't know she was diabetic until my neighbor mentioned it.

My neighbor is a former educator, and she thought Molly's story would make a great book. I agree!

I contacted agents, and one was interested, but had glaucoma surgery. She referred me to other agents....all thought it was too niche.

They're wrong. At its heart, Molly's story is not only a dog story--and who doesn't love a dog story?--but the story of living a happy and healthy life with diabetes.

Does anyone NOT know someone with diabetes? I have several friends with diabetes. Sadly, a good friend of mine passed from complications of the illness at 40. My father had adult onset diabetes in his senior years. This book is needed.

With your help, I'm going to bring this much-needed book into the hands of children and dog lovers everywhere.
