Ken Gorman, Publicist

Linda Gorman, nine-year resident of SaddleBrooke Ranch, is now officially a published author. Her book titled Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets is published by Archway Publishing partnered with Simon and Shuster.

Linda’s book is a collection of short stories of pets of SaddleBrooke Ranch, based on true facts collected from questionnaires she gave to resident pet owners. She also bases her imaginative stories on her observations of the pets at the Canine Corral dog park, and along our streets. (Did you know Linda won the dog park naming contest?)

Being written from the point of view of their pets, Linda presents her stories as being told by pets. Yes, the pets do virtually all the dialog. 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 portion of book royalties to her pet charities, Humane Society of Southern Arizona and Canine Companions for Independence, with others in mind.

Linda presents her 22 stories as independent essays in the 90-page collection, designed for the attention span of young readers, and also appropriate for grandparents reading to their grandchildren—offering a generational bonding opportunity.

Her book is available at Archway Publishing, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all major book sellers. Visit her website (or be automatically transferred there via for more information including links directly to her pages at book sellers.

Linda has been a board member of the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network. She writes poetry and creates pet photo-art. She’s an avid duplicate bridge player, is fanatical about pickleball, and, obviously, loves pets.
