 Well it’s been a long time in coming, but here is the new MUSKETMANIA!

Some new visitors may wonder why I chose the name ‘Musketmania. It has nothing to do with muzzle-loading firearms. Musket was my first Guide Dog. We worked together for more than ten years before he retired in 2012. When I wrote ‘Confessions of a Guide Dog – The Blonde Leading the Blind in 2011 I set up this website to promote the book and Musket. You’ll find out more about this remarkable dog on this site.

Over the last couple of years a good friend, Sharon McCabe has managed to put some things on the site but what it really needed after Musket’s passing was a total makeover.

What you will find on this site are pages about Musket and Saffron, my second Guide Dog. Also you can find out about my books, Confessions of a Guide Dog – The Blonde Leading the Blind and Flying on Film – A Century of Aviation in the Movies 1912-2012, reviews and where to buy them.

There are pages of some of my magazine articles and public lecture series, FUNspeakable, and best of all a page with information and links to Jane’s new paper crafting business, Papier Vogel.

Videos, pictures and my favorite links can be found here too.

This is still a work in progress, so please keep coming back for updates.
