Dean Koontz is one of the world's biggest selling authors. Anna Koontz is Dean's remarkable dog who is poised to follow in her dad's footsteps with her first advice book for canines. She will soon become canine columnist to the world!
Between the pages of ASK ANNA, you'll find advice better than a belly rub. Dogs everywhere run to Anna with their questions about love, food, proper etiquette in the dog park, sibling rivalry, how to cope with lazy owners and a myriad of other topics. Anna's advice solves all problems and brightens Every Dog's Day.
Anna begins her counselling by putting dogs at ease. Her motto: 'Let Me Hold Your Paw and Help.'
Anna's advice to owners is 'Read this book and get a clue about what your dogs really think of you!'
Here's a special message from Anna:
My dad, Dean Koontz, is a writer - as you might be aware. For years his first golden retriever, Trixie, also wrote books, which sometimes made the bestseller list. I vowed never to be a writer.
I barely have enough time for all the belly rubs, ball chasing, bird chasing, tug-of-war, and posing cutely that is required of me as a golden retriever, not to mention all of my non-professional interests such as the new translation of Proust that I have undertaken, and learning to pilot a hot-air balloon.
Nevertheless, I have written a book of advice for dogs. It's not a matter of ego, which anyone who knows a golden retriever will attest. It's not about money, because all the earnings I recieve from ASK ANNA will be given to Canine Companions for Independence, which provides assistance dogs for people with disabilities. What it's about is giving back to my community - which I feel obliged to do especially because of all the park grass I've ruined with little round brown spots.
Thank you for your support.
