Wild at Heart


Do you have a soft spot for the wild side of nature? Well I do.  When my local RWA chapter, Diamond State Romance Authors out of Little Rock, Arkansas decided to help out a local animal refuge I was excited. Many authors donated their time, and their stories to help Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge  and the end result is finally here.

Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart Volume I & Wild at Heart Volume II are now available on Amazon, and will soon be available for print.
Volume 1 consists of adult stories focused
on large-animal rescue and/or the dangers of keeping one as a pet. Volume 2 consists of young adult stories. Again, all proceeds will benefit TCWR, and the books will be sold by TCWR in their bookstore and online.  
The Diamond State Romance Authors are proud of this project.  There are more than tigers at TCWR: bears, bobcats, ligers, lions, and a cougar.  The tigers pictured on the covers are residents of the facility. Missy is featured on the cover of Volume 1, and Loretta is the tiger model for Volume 2. Go check out the awesome work done by http://www.turpentinecreek.org/ .
    This book is very special to me because it is my first published story. A monumental moment in any authors life.  So visit the website. See what amazing things they are doing to preserve the lives of the animals they have rescued and purchase the books. The animals and many volunteers at the refuge will thank you.

  1. Congratulations, Lynda, on your first published story. You must be thrilled right down to your toes. :)

  2. Hi Lynda. What a great thing to do for a wonderful cause! Congrats on your story being published. I've had two shorts published and it never gets old :)
