About Me


Dogs & Books

JAS signature.png

Hi, I'm JoAnn Sky. I've been writing for years as part of my job (business and marketing plans and the like). One day, I tried writing for fun--and LOVED it.  Now I author contemporary romance and children's books. I also am a trained copy-editor.


I'm originally from the Midwest and now live in northern Nevada with my husband (a.k.a. love of my life), three teenage children, and three crazy rescue dogs. I 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, my publishing company. I believe books have the power to build connections... and animals do, too! It all began with a true story about our first rescue dog. He was a very special dog. In fact, I believe this dog was sent to us by Santa himself.  Want to read more about it?  Click here.

Thanks for stopping by!



Dogs & Books is a publisher of high quality, dog-themed children's books. I now also offer editing services to help your writing shine! 

Our animal companions help us every day, and Dogs & Books helps them right back! Every purchase HELPS a shelter animal, because a portion of profits go to animal rescue causes.

The Dogs who Rescued Me

My family and I have had the honor of welcoming several older shelter dogs into our pack... each one absolutely perfect!
