About the Author
Jackie Bouchard (jackiebouchard.com), an award winning and USA TODAY bestselling author, writes
Fido-friendly fiction. She used to be trapped in the hamster wheel of
corporate America, but she was lucky enough to escape and now fully
understands the term "struggling writer." Jackie loves: reading,
writing, and, yes, even 'rithmetic (seriously, algebra rocks);
professional cycling; margaritas; blogging (she never thought she'd say
that, but she does); dogs in general, and her crazy rescue pup
specifically; and her hubby. (Not in that order.) Jackie dislikes: rude
people and writing about herself in the third person. After living in
Southern California, then Bermuda, then Canada, then the East coast,
Jackie and her husband settled in San Diego. American Jackie, her
Canadian hubby, and her Mexican rescue mutt form their own happy little
United Nations. Jackie's novels include "What The Dog Ate" and "Rescue
Me, Maybe." Connect with her on Facebook
