In Gratitude is her first published volume of poetry. Valerie is an animal lover and advocate for human and animal rights. She lives with five rescued pets, cats Lily, Jack, and Molly, and dogs Goldie and Toby. Valerie is also currently working towards the publication of her first children’s book, A Dream for Patches or The Christmas Bear’s Wish, a story with some sadness and longing, but also in which every spirit ultimately finds their own path to peace and joy. She wishes these things for every Soul in the world.
