If you ask Beth Lyons what she does, she would answer, "I'm a grandmother.". What she is is what she loves to do. With her grandchildren living nearby, she is blessed to observe firsthand an open door to God's heart. Luke, Kate, Claire and Burk are the invitation to enter that door. They inspire her stories and Kate Loves Dogs is her first to be published. Beth lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with her husband, Pat, and their hound dog, Louie.
