Today’s featured author is Ruth Ann Hanley. She and her Cockapoo, Pepper, will be appearing at this year’s 65th Annual Christmas Gift & Hobby Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. She will be signing books on Friday, November 7th, from 3:30 PM – 9:00 PM, and Saturday, November 8th, from 3:30 PM – 9:00 PM.
Ruth has lived in Indiana most of her adult life with no intention of leaving. She is an animal lover, photo-journalist, writer (fiction and non-fiction in local and national publications) and retired attorney.
No Pulling Back is Ruth’s first novel, and much research went into understanding her dog protagonist. She invites readers to enter the mind-set of this huge, muscular and intelligent beast from the first century. Please share his brave journey from the applause of the bloodthirsty crowd in the Roman amphitheater to the joy of unflinching love. Can we learn from a dog how to love completely and unreservedly? Read and see.
If you are an animal lover, you will love her story showing the healing touch of a chocolate lab. To read that story and to learn more about Ruth Ann Hanley and her work, check out her website: http://www.hanleyra.com
