Press Release:

Colorado author publishes amusing collection of pet “tails” to benefit Humane Society

Steamboat Springs, CO
November 20, 2015

Steamboat Springs author and animal-advocate Janne Siegel just released her first book, Mountain Tails, a humorous coffee-table collection of Rocky Mountain dog “tails” that also gives back: a portion of proceeds from book sales will directly benefit the Humane Society.

About the Book:

Mountain Tails is an amusing collection of interviews with the pets of Routt County, Colorado. Dogs and cats cover topics ranging from their ski town lifestyle to family dynamics, food fetishes, annoyances and activities. The pets share their philosophies on life and offer advice both for pets heading to a new forever home and families who are bringing home a newly adopted pet. Regardless of where you live, the unique words of wisdom and stories from these pets will make you smile, laugh, and cry. In lieu of fees for their interviews, the pets requested that a portion of the proceeds from this book be donated to Routt County Humane Society.

About the Author:
Janne Siegel is an energetic, borderline neurotic multi-tasker, whose three dogs (her “Girls”) would still say is annoyingly slow when it comes time for making dinner and going on hikes, but who is really nice overall, especially after she finishes her morning meditation.

Living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado (a.k.a., “Dog Town, USA”) with her husband and her 3 patient Girls (a.k.a., her Muses), Janne has been recently published in the Valley Voice and is a member of the RMC Society of Children’s Books Writers & Illustrators.  She enjoys writing about the animals in our lives, and is currently working on a feature books on pets, a children’s book series based  on animals, and authoring a pet blog.

In her “previous life,” Janne practiced law for 20+ years, and, not missing a beat, recently transitioned into her new life as a writer. Janne also practices and teaches yoga, loves to cook (though not the grocery shopping part), and pretty much participates in all activities her mountain home has to offer.

Suffice it to say, Janne thoroughly embraces life in the Rocky Mountain lifestyle. She believes it takes 21 days to establish a new habit, is too scared to watch a horror movie or read a horror novel, and believes wholeheartedly in retail therapy.

Read more about Janne’s adventures in her Dear Taffy blog. Users can learn more and purchase the book online here or  in these locations.
