In Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets, Linda offers a collection of short stories OF PETS based on facts collected from questionnaires she gave to pet owners. Being written from the point of view of pets, Linda presents her stories as being told BY PETS. Her touching, sweet and believable stories expressing love and hope will please children of all ages and perhaps surface elusive feelings generating productive conversations. This book is also FOR PETS. Linda will donate a generous portion of book royalties to needy pet shelters.
What if pets could talk?™ What if they could reveal points of view and express emotions of everyday life in their simple communications with their kin?
With her natural affinity for pets--especially dogs--and decades of experience in creative endeavors demanding imagination and persuasive expression that is fundamental to all art forms, author Linda Gorman is perfectly situated to be the voice of pets.
Her writing style as illustrated in her "Poesyart" poems in her self-published A Whisper of Inspiration (2008) is to present challenges and gently offer opportunistic responses to them.
In her Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets, Linda likes to strike nerves suddenly, with imaginative interpretations of facts provided by pet owners, bringing unexpected joy, laughter, even a tugging of the heart.

|"We have always believed our pet babies were smart and communicated with us. This enjoyable book, with their photogenic expressions and stories, prove it is true. We are honored to be part of the book proceeds being donated to Canine Companions for Independence."
Music together with sound effects enhances the imagination adding the dimension that makes an audiobook a "play", thus the term AudioPlay. Linda is thrilled to have the songs of Charles Segal weaving their way through a number of her stories; see Table of Stories on this webpage for details.

Charles Segal is a classically trained jazz/commercial pianist and composer born June 15th, 1929 in Joniskis, Lithuania. At the age of two his family moved to South Africa.

He was a founding member of the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) and the Drama and Literary Rights Organization (DALRO) in 1961. He founded the Charles Segal Music School in Pretoria and Cape Town. In 1973, Segal's song, "My Children, My Wife" (Segal/Roos), won a SARI for Song of the Year.
Segal's musical career spread to other parts of the world, including London, Boston (1967), and New York where his song "Another Time, Another Place" was recorded by jazz singer Arthur Prysock. Other hits written in the USA include "Girl Power" with Sheila Davis and "Tomboy", sung by Ronnie Dove, which received a "bullet" rating in Billboard Magazine in 1968.
In 1986, Charles relocated to Boston. He and his wife Colleen co-wrote eight full-length childrens' musicals and published several music books, including "Instant Keyboard," "Instant Guitar," and "Instant Songwriting."
