Kayla has been a writer ever since she was a little kid, and as the great Stephen King will tell you, writing is a lonely job. It's a bit less lonely of a path, however, when you have furry friends there to comfort you and even encourage you in their own nonhuman way. Likewise, Kayla has adored animals since she was a little kid, and when she was ten years old, she was finally allowed to adopt a puppy. This dog, Sheila, is now sixteen years old, and in addition to providing Kayla with love and affection from childhood to adulthood, Sheila has helped her grow braver, more confident, and more compassionate, both as a writer and a person.
Now, Kayla is engaged to her best friend from high school, and her relationship with him is reaffirmed on a daily basis by his interactions with Sheila, who is as loyal to him as she is to Kayla. Over the last few years, the three of them have built a strong, happy "pack" by taking in another dog named Flash, a cat named Millie Mouse, a kitten named Jazz, and a rabbit named Toby. Along with Kayla's fiancée, Sheila and Kayla spend each day guiding their fuzzy family and ensuring its peace and prosperity. Because she understands and values the constant job it is to give her fur kids the love, care, and attention they deserve, Kayla is a person people can trust to do the same for their own pets when they are busy. Her ability to write is honed, in part, by immersing herself in the stories around her, and just like people, Kayla believes every pet has their own story worthy of appreciation.
Growing up my family always had animals, which ranged from cats, dogs, rabbits, fish, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, you name it. We even helped raised abandoned squirrel and raccoon babies we found in our backyard. My older sister and I always would lend a helping hand to any hurt or abandoned animals we found and even though we couldn't save them all it made us feel like we were making a difference. Now, I am currently in school to become a veterinary technician so that I can express my love and passion for helping animals in need to the fullest.
