About the Author
Since 2003, when The Doggy Diva Show aired its first broadcast, Susan Marie and her canine co-hosts – the doggy divas themselves – have been committed to sharing important health and lifestyle information for pets and pet parents, with help from pet professionals, authors, and national industry experts including Bob Barker, Dean Koontz, Julia Cameron, Alison Eastwood, and America’s Veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker. The show was inspired by and continues to honor its original mascot, “Sophia the Doggy Diva,” who captured the hearts of listeners, becoming “the voice of the voiceless” for homeless animals everywhere. Since 2007, Susan and her divas have penned the bi-monthly editorial column “Diva Delights,” which promotes animal adoption, fostering, and “paying it forward.” The parent of three foster/rescue dogs, Susan is a passionate advocate for animal rescue and is committed to promoting adoption, fostering spaying/neutering, and the importance of donating time and money to local animal shelters and rescues. Susan is inspired by her aunt, an award-winning children’s book author and animal advocate. Susan is a member of the Florida Writers Association and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
