A Passion for Animals Leads to a New Book Series
Elaine Marlier, a gifted and talented author from Colorado, has a passion to help animals. She is the author of a series of books about animal adoptions: Without a Home: Inspiring and Heartfelt Tales of Animal Adoptions. One book is devoted to dogs, one to cats and the third to small animals.
The books were a joy to write, according to the author. “They are a great read for all ages, from kids to seniors, but our main target would have to be the younger generation,”
The Without a Home series are unique and wonderfully illustrated collections of short stories about animals in need of a second chance at life. Each story is told not only from the animal's perspective, but in their own words. The animals take the reader on a journey, of life before the shelter, their stay at the shelter, and then life after being given that second chance in life. At the end of each story, the perspective flips to the human point of view after adopting the animal. Each of the stories brings back to mind some of life's most important lessons.
“By encouraging adoption, and helping people see animals for what they are, we are making an impact and a difference for those animals. We also use the books to raise money for rescues and shelters to help them in their efforts to care for the animals. In the past two years we have raised over $12,000 and with what we have raised so far this year, we are over $15,000.”
The stories promote and encourage adoption by allowing the reader to view these animals as living, breathing souls and they educate the reader about the importance of adoption and the need for shelters everywhere to take in these animals and find new homes for them.
Elaine has also written a fourth book, Christmas Angels, about a homeless man who finds his true path in life because of a dog named Angel. This story reinforces the fact that angels surround us every day, and come in all shapes and sizes. It also gives a new insight to those people who most of us pass by on the street, not giving a second thought to because of their ragged clothes.
Elaine has a full time job in the pet industry, and owns three adopted dogs (Gracie, Helen and Isaac) and two adopted cats (Jake and Jordan). When she is not busy writing books, she spends as much time as she can fund raising for homeless animals.
