". . .The author uses the dog’s power of perception to provide a detailed description of each setting, so the reader feels completely involved with the unfolding narrative. There is a lot of love in this story and a lot of learning for Chance, his humans, and the readers who follow his story. A lovely story from beginning to end. The reader will laugh and cry and cheer Chance along. Very uplifting."

Local Author Showcase at the San Diego Public Library
We thoroughly enjoyed attending the wonderful reception unveiling the San Diego Public Library's Local Author Showcase, which includes Chance in a Lifetime! It was so inspiring to see all of the amazing books, chat with other authors, and talk about my work. We're very proud to have this book featured in the collection along with so many other great works! If you are in Downtown San Diego, be sure to check it out. The books will be on display in the showcase through all of February 2020, and then in March will move to a special section together and may be checked out.
