US War Dog Association

Ronie Uncategorized Leave a Comment

In 2018 when Brian and I moved up here to New Jersey, we had the daunting task of finding a new vet for our dogs, but that gets a bit tricky because of VVolt’s training. Then one of my friends from the MWD community informed me there was an organization that will cover retired MWD’s medications and bills. To my stunning delight, the United States War Dog Association was right here in New Jersey, and one of their hospitals is within an hour’s drive from us! I couldn’t believe it. So, I applied and got VVolt N629 (ret) covered. There nearly 100 dogs covered by this program. And ya know what, friends? That’s not a cheap thing. Okay, friends. I …

Ronie Uncategorized 9 Comments

So. Ever have one of those books (series) that it’s the HEART of your HEART?! The one story that if you never published anything EVER again, you’d be perfectly content? Well, that is what The Droseran Saga is to me. And I’m thrilled-over-the-moon-squealing-Snoopy-dancing excited to announce–IT’S OFFICIAL!!! I have signed a 3-book contract with Enclave Publishing (A Gilead Imprint) for my science fiction (space opera) series, The Droseran Saga. Fall 2019 will bring the release of Brand of Light (Book 1).

Happy July 4th!!

  I share this version of our national anthem (below) every 4th. Typically, I don’t like covers of our national anthem, but this one . . . well, it just RAWKS! To me, Madison Rising NAILED the spirit of the anthem and our country with this driving rendition. As a writer of military fiction, I think it mirrors the rawness of the fight for independence and freedom. Their addition of “It’s our future to save…” seems especially relevant today. Do you have a favorite version?
