About the Author
Jim Willis is a writer, artist, and animal advocate. He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has lived much of his adult life in Europe. In 1990, he and his wife, Nicole Valentin, founded and personally funded a multi-species, all-breed rescue, placement, education and advocacy effort, now The Tiergarten Sanctuary Trust. They have adopted and share their lives with over three dozen rescued animals. Jim is a member of the American Sanctuary Association and the African Conservation Foundation, and is a supporter of other efforts for animals and the environment. His dream is to have a sanctuary with habitat-appropriate facilities for rescued wolves and wolf-hybrids, an expanded adoption program for rescued companion animals, and education programs that promote the human-animal bond. His wife would like a new vacuum cleaner. They may be contacted at email@example.com

IF MY HOUSE HOUSE WERE BURNING DOWN & I COULD ONLY TAKE ONE MATERIAL THING OUT WITH ME; IT WOULD BE MY AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF "PIECES OF MY HEART". I LOVE THIS BOOK!
This is the most tender, funny, entertaining, humane, full of love book I have ever read. Everyone can enjoy it , no matter if you are a real animal lover or not. It's so full of life warming love, joy and pain, feelings and reality that it will touch every "piece of your heart". I recommend this reading to everyone, no matter age or gender. I am sure every reader will see, thru the author's eyes, the need for help for the animals "in need".
