More About the Author
The stories of her well-received Something's Lost and Must be Found were inspired by the posts published on her popular blog established to promote the venerable National Dog Week Movement.
The author is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and worked as a Human Resources Associate at Home Box Office in New York City. These days she derives inspiration while working near "the 'cric" in Ocean County, NJ where she resides with her husband and Foster-to-Forever dog, Teddy.

An engaging writer, who writes about what she loves and knows well, Lisa ups the anty here in her poetic and symbolic use of language. Centered around the experience of finding oneself at a loss as we live our lives, these six "tails" explore meaning and insight that can be gleaned from sharing the company of our loyal canine friends.
This is a lovely, cozy and light read. Lisa has turned her experience and passion of a life lived around dogs, into sweet comforting pieces.
I look forward to this being the first in a series!
Begin-Kruysman writes in an engaging, easy-to-read style about several special canines who bring joy, love, hope and happiness to those who cross their paths. The stories are each different, but united by a common theme of "something lost". In some cases it may be a human quality, in others it may literally be a physical thing lost but each story varies from the others and each is uniquely entertaining.
The collection of stories was written in honor of National Dog Week, which begins on September 17th. It is worth noting that each story highlights the importance of dogs in our lives and many highlight the importance of animal adoption and rescue.
If you are an animal person who can give a dog a home now is the perfect time to consider getting one if you are able. Do some research on the web, find out which breed would be best matched to your requirements, (e.g., size of the breed, size of your yard, energy level of the dog, type of recreation you like to participate in) and please remember that puppies aren't the only dogs who need homes, a lot of really loving older dogs are seeking their "forever home" too and are just waiting the opportunity to be adopted. For many of these older dogs the proverbial clock is ticking rapidly. Please consider giving them a home.
If you are a dog-lover you will greatly enjoy Lisa Begin-Kruysman's collection of short stories, if you are just a lover of a good short story you will also enjoy these tales. I enjoyed Something's Lost and Must Be Found" and I think you will too.
