Making Independence Happen is written for 5th grade on up. It's my first book, and I started writing it in 2012. Why? Like any author, I have a story to tell and want to encourage anyone who has struggled to find their place in this world. It is written first from the POV of Yazzen, where he tells his story. Then he turns the story=telling over to me, and I tell my story. Please take a look at the trailer for a preview.
Lifted up by a combination of stubborn determination and her religious faith Amy Chally and her service dog present an inspiring and educational look at capable canines and the work they can do to lighten the burden of those of us who tackle unusual challenges. Gerald A. Metz, M.D
What a great job on your book!! I learned so much from it! It helped me realize what not to do in public when service dogs are working!! An eye-opener! Ron
I just read your book & absolutely loved it!!! You did a remarkable job on it. It reminds me of the phrase, "To dream of the person you'd like to be, is to waste the person you are." (You can use that in your sequel.). I love how positive of a person you are. I'm sure anyone with a disability would feel good after reading your book & giving them hope that they can achieve things too. Many great days going forward!!! Sandie
Amy's book is wonderful. She spoke at a therapy dog club meeting I belong to and is so inspiring. I really recommend her book to all ages. And if you ever get a chance to hear her speak, you too will find that she is an incredible person. Sue
What a wonderfully engaging book. With truth and heartfelt emotions. Amy is such an inspiring young woman, and I deeply respect and admire her. If I was in her shoes, I'm not sure I would be as strong and optimistic as she is. The love she and Yazzen shared can never be equaled. Claudette Read more
