Everything You Say About Me THAT'S WONDERFUL is TRUE
Catherine Blewett Miller is celebrating National Dog Day by announcing the publication of a book inspired by her dog, Casey. “Everything You Say About Me THAT’S WONDERFUL is True” is an alphabetical series of poems from a dog’s perspective about positive personal qualities we all possess.
“Casey did not understand or respond to negativity,” said Blewett Miller. “As a therapy dog, his positive energy brought joy to hundreds of people. I’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital and thought it could be helpful to patients to be reminded of their strengths at a vulnerable time in their lives.”
Blewett Miller started writing the book 15 years ago but pushed it aside when an artist friend said it would be more work to do the illustrations than to write it.
“He made me feel like my ideas and words were worthless even though he hadn’t read my manuscript. I could’ve used the message of my book back then.
Now her book, that she describes as an A to Z prescription for happiness, is being published by Orange Hat Publishing of Waukesha, with an expected release date of November 1, 2019. “It’s a children’s/everybody book because anyone can relate to its messages,” Blewett Miller said.
Illustrator Amy Kleinhans, a MIAD graduate from Palmyra, added the visuals to her text.
