About the Author
McCall Hoyle is an award-winning author and teacher librarian. When she grows up, she’d also like to be a professional dog trainer. She writes hopeful, heartfelt books for kids of all ages and believes one of the best ways to spread hope and share her heart is by writing about the special bond between dogs and their humans.When McCall isn’t writing or teaching, you will probably find her with one of her four-legged friends training for agility, obedience, or dock diving. If she’s feeling spontaneous or needs a change of scenery, you might find her and a furry companion chasing make-believe bunnies at a lure coursing event or even hunting rats in a straw-filled barn in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains she calls home. You can learn more about her at mccallhoyle.com.
