About the Author
More About the Author
"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 has just released "All The Peace I Might Find, or Not - One Woman's Dog Addiction Gone So Terribly Right." This is a continuation of her dog addiction and life as it unfolds through the human-animal experience - all written with lyrical grace, emotional stamina and a humorous edge.

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 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.
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.Read more ›
