More About the Author

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Elizabeth Allen emigrated to California in the early 90's. Writing her first novel at thirty six and putting it on the shelf until ten years later, proved to be necessary medicine. "Shedding Ailish" is still looking for a home, which she believes will happen in due time. Today a large portion of her writing is fueled by her love of animals and assisting animal caregivers with end of life care and support. "Love Crosses Over", a collection of short stories and poetry about messages from people and animals who have crossed over, has been mending the hearts of those in need of healing, followed just four months later by "Manifesting Mongrel - The Summer of our Content", a story of loss, healing and the medicinal properties of an animal's love to help heal the human wound. She speaks on the subject of grief and loss, animal hospice and more in her San Diego community at weekly and monthly events, while continuing to hold the hand of the grieving animal caregiver.

Elizabeth's book, a frank exercise in self-discovery, has a quirky charm.
I enjoyed reading it because of the author's unique interpretation of love, loss and learning to live again.
In particular, Elizabeth shows how having a spiritual dimension to our lives can actually make us happier.
She writes frankly about the death of her parents; their impact on her life; her love for them and how grief has had a positive impact on her life.
Her beloved pets, both alive and dead, are an integral part of her life and there is no doubt that each and every one of them have left their paw prints across her heart.

I've never read a book quite like this - with all the charm and wit you'd expect from an Irish storyteller, and yet laced with haunting poetry. Elizabeth has discovered new ways to describe loss - but also new ways to find hope. From family and friends to pets ... she takes us on her personal journeys full of heart and surprise.

This is the book I needed four years ago! It would have helped me so much to get through the pain I felt when my cat, Taz, died of intestinal lymphoma. To read the words the author writes about the loss of people and pets in her life...all written with heartfelt emotion...brings back the memories of what I was going through then.

I really felt alone in my grief because I didn't know anyone who really understood how I was feeling. Elizabeth Allen validates what we tend to forget: there should never be a time limit on how long you grieve. Although people around you may soon think there is something wrong with you. (It was just a cat. Move on.)

She tells each story with so much honesty that you feel like you are there experiencing what she is going through. The stories (and poems) will make you cry. I know I cried and would sometimes have to put the book down and come back to it. But, that's just me. I have such a soft heart for animals. But, there's also humor thrown in and you get to know that side of the author too. I laughed at some of her "ism's". I love her Irish expressions. I read them and thought, "She's saying the same thing we say, but it sounds better when she says it."

I will keep this book nearby and pick it up and read parts of it when I need to. It comforts me. One passage she wrote that really hit home with me was when she wrote about losing her white cat, "Fiona". She wrote, "A year of battling cancer with her fades in comparison to twenty-four hours of missing her." That, in a nutshell, is what I felt when Taz died. It wasn't a year, only three months, but I've thought many times that I would rather re-live those three months taking care of him before he died, than face the hours and days afterward.

I thank her for writing this book.

Format: Paperback
When my German Shepherd, Ringo (my soul mate) was diagnosed with liver/spleen cancer at the young age of 7, I sought help where ever I could get my hands on it. Through several Holistic healers/vets, I found "Love Crosses Over". I did not read it until a few days after I had to put Ringo to sleep. I describe my pain as "getting punched in the heart" for it truly hurt me physically and right to the core of my soul. Reading the book was the first step I took toward healing. I immediately was immersed in her world, which was now mine (again, as I'd lost my mother 13 years ago). Her words came straight from the heart. I could feel her energy and love as I read. The fact that she has also suffered from loss (several times over) made her book all that more honest and deep. She too has felt what I am feeling right now. Like me, she loves intensely. When you love at such a high intensity though, you also grieve just as intensely. I was swept away by her life's story in Ireland. Like me, she was not born and raised in the U.S. I was born and raised in Colombia, South America. Being away from family is not an easy thing. It's amazing that two complete strangers from across several oceans can actually be so much alike.

Elizabeth helped me look at death from another perspective. One I am not familiar with. That all death really is, is that we cross over to the other side, but we are always here, there, every where and ever so present. Our spirits live on. And so I feel and see my Ringo everywhere around me.

I am also blessed to have met Elizabeth as a result of my loss. I am blessed to have met a true true angel.

Whether you've lost a parent, sibling, close relative and like me, a fur baby, you will not be able to put this book down. I devoured it at a time in need.

Ms Allen's book is a pleasant conversation and a memorable one at that. I believe that I heard her enunciating the entire book. There is no belying her Irish heritage as her lilt of language is truly wonderful. Saying, here is a story of mine own! I felt as though she were sitting next to me expressing emotion into my reading. What I understood was a group of stories about love and remembrance that were sensitive to me, written by someone who appreciates lives. My spiritual readings are generally classics. However, I came out of this reading realizing that, here, personal sharing is at it's best.
