Teresa J. Rhyne is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dog Lived (and So Will I), a surprisingly hilarious memoir about her dog and her both surviving cancer. The sequel, The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I), won the Pat Santi Memorial award from the Dog Writers Association of America. Her newest book, Poppy in the Wild: A Lost Dog, Fifteen Hundred Acres of Wilderness and the Dogged Determination that Brought Her Home continues her tradition of writing humorously about tragedies that happen to her and her dogs. Tragedy plus time plus cute dogs equal heartfelt comedy.
