Janet York is at present an accomplished writer and a successful artist, creating realistic sculptures in bronze, stone, and acrylic. She spends her time between these two ventures in addition to caring for and training her many cavaliers in numerous disciplines, including pet therapy. She has raised, bred, and successfully shown many of her cavaliers to the number one position in the dog world. In this book, she introduces a new breed, the Biewer, for fans to love. The tale of this book embraces Tuxedo, a curious Biewer, and Betty Boop, a caring cavalier, as they find themselves whisked away together on a magical adventure where a very valuable lesson is learned about the importance of friendship and bullying. The inspiration for this fantastical story comes from a lifetime of of experiences rooted in her evolving career as a nurse, teacher, psychotherapist, and mom.
She is passionate about writing children's books that showcase her cavaliers while reaching her audience with meaningful and fun-loving messages. For this story, she called upon her love for Dr. Seuss stories to tell a tale rich in rhyme and whimsy. As a former teacher, she understands the importance of reading and the enjoyment it brought to her three children at bedtime. This story is a culmination of experience, endearing memories, and the desire to keep the joy of reading aloud alive. She welcomes you to Piccadillyville, a place where anything is possible.
She resides in New York City. She has three children, four grandchildren, seventeen cavaliers, and one Biewer.
