Supporting Amendment 13 in the Race to Save Dogs!


Much of my nonfiction centers on my life as a veteran greyhound owner, foster parent, and rescue volunteer, and all of the horrible things I've seen, and that these dogs have endured, as a direct and indirect result of the racing industry. In recent months, I have joined a movement to save this gentle breed from the perpetual an unnecessary cycle of abuse, and support Florida's Constitutional Amendment 13 and the COMMITTEE TO PROTECT DOGS. Amendment 13, if passed, will ban dog racing in the state of Florida, and save current and future dogs from ongoing exploitation. Greyhounds should be offered the same opportunities as other breeds, to grow up as pets and not as the disposable commodities of greed. I also believe that voters have the right to decide how their tax dollars are spent in relation to propping up a decaying industry rooted in animal exploitation.

Apparently, the Florida State government and Supreme Court agree with me. On September 7, 2018, the Florida Supreme Court overturned a circuit judge's ruling, and racing industry efforts, to remove Amendment 13 from the November 2018 state ballot. I am thrilled to say that Amendment 13 will remain on the ballot. This offers Florida voters a chance to voice their opinions, and protect dogs from the injuries, illnesses, and deaths related to track life.


Please Protect Dogs and Vote Yes On Amendment 13 this November!

In the not-so-distant future, model 2112 (Abe), a clonedroid prototype, is slated to die. Amidst corporate scandal, executives of the Multipurpose Android and Cloning Corporation attempt to dodge controversy over their latest invention. They also plan to garner public support by chopping up Abe and donating his body to transplant patients. It is a move that will save lives and dispose of a problematic product, but the project team leader is reluctant to dismantle her prototype. Caught in a crisis of conscience, and a chaotic environment, she decides to save Abe, but her plans are mired by divided loyalties and sabotage. With a different vision for the future and greater potential than anyone realizes, Abe unleashes plans of his own.

CLONEDROID: THE NEW WAVE is a hard science fiction novel about a human android. This story pays homage to Isaac Asimov and a few other notables, and will be available to readers soon.
