Five Things You Should Know about Kelly Preston
Author Kelly Preston
What are five items about me that I would like to share? Hmm…let’s see; there is a playful side to me. Those that know me will at first tell someone that I am quiet, reserved and somewhat conservative; however, when I am very comfortable in my surroundings, I like to be playful and live in the moment. Which is another interesting fact, I am an INFJ (Myers-Briggs) yet my closest friends swear that I am an extrovert. As a child, looking back, it makes sense that I am an INFJ; I was very creative and found ways to be entertaining. Another item as a child, was always volunteering for fundraising events. And guess what? I still do a lot of volunteer work especially around events for pets. Basically, I am a softie; I had a friend tell me once that I am Cinderella with a sword. Love it!
About Real Dogs Don’t Whisper
Real Dogs Don't Whisper
The award winning book, Real Dogs Don’t Whisper (www.realdogsdontwhisper.com), which highlights my life journey caring for four special needs dogs and the life lessons they taught me along the way. The overall message within Real Dogs Don’t Whisper is about giving those with special needs a second chance. The book touches on integrity, unconditional love, leadership, trust, stopping abuse and opening your heart to receive and give both unconditional love and friendship. To lighten the message, I developed a co-author, Mr MaGoo; Mr MaGoo is my Lhasa Apso and he is larger than life. He adds humor within the book; sharing with the reader how life is so tough for him being the only male in the house and living with a crazy lady, me.
Mr. MaGoo is a nine-year-old Lhasa Apso and the book’s co-creator and co-writer. He is, in his own words, “the alpha and omega of all dogs – in the cutest and sparkiest, most fun-loving package ever.” Ignoring Kelly’s persistent eye-rolling, Mr. MaGoo has forged ahead with this project in an attempt to, as he puts it, “present the facts from a dog’s perspective. In other words, the correct, most accurate, most interesting, only-one-that-matters perspective,” to which he adds, simply, “Woof!”
