Hi, I'm JoAnn Sky--multi-genre author, writing coach and editor, and owner of the publishing company Dogs & Books. I've been writing and editing for over 20 years and love helping fellow authors reach their writing goals. Looking for an editor? Need help developing a concept?

I firmly believe books have the power to build connections... and animals do, too! I especially have a soft spot for older rescue dogs. They are the most overlooked, underappreciated gifts of goodness in the world.  That's why I started Dogs & Books, a publishing company for my children's books. It all began with the true story of our first rescue dog. He was a very special dog. In fact, I believe this dog was sent to us by Santa!  Read more about it here.

Take some time to "sniff" around.  There's lots going on. To stay up-to-date on what's happening, please sign up for my newsletter: Click Here.  Enjoy your visit ~ and thanks for stopping by!
