Hi, there --
If you thought we were for kids, you were only partly right. Actually, kids have been reading "Pawprints" to their parents, and adults have been reading the book for a while themselves. Sometimes to their dogs. We know. They asked Ina to autograph copies in their pets' names. And now, we're building a special place for adults, including seniors, who care to drop in and spend a little time "a-MUSE-ing" themselves.
So, as promised, Introducing ---
A corner for adults to share their own reminiscences of times spent being made happy by fuzzy, flying or creeping creatures.
Or whatever! As long as it's clean. See the new stories penned by our adult contributors. Many are first-time writers, who thought they never could write, because "It's so hard." They were quite surprised and pleased to see it wasn't as bad as they'd feared. Others are professional writers and editors looking for a structured class to help jump start them on their life histories. Just hit the buttons below to see our growing collection. And keep coming back...more to be posted.
