“I retired in 2011 with the idea that I would start to write again. I’d sit down with paper and pen and just couldn’t get into a flow. I immersed myself in my garden where the colors and patterns of each season slowly erased my former life of cubicles and someone else’s deadlines. The seasons passed with their own deadlines, the garden expanded, but when I sat down at a blank paper the words just didn’t come.
Then one day I started writing again. Simple as that. Well, not so simple. I logged over fifty revisions as I crafted and wordsmithed and proofread. But the characters flowed and the story was there. I published my first novel, Returning Souls, in February 2018. It’s the story of a woman who embarks on the journey of a lifetime after a near-death experience, and discovers her second chance at her own life. I’m working on a sequel, hopefully to be published in late 2018 – early 2019.“ —Ernestine Colombo, Author
“I write because I have to. Ever since the age of six, I have been driven to write.
What do I write? I write everything! I just can’t fit into one category.
People might ask me: “If you’ve been writing all of your life, why haven’t I heard from you before?”
Well, the truth is you might have and didn’t know it.” —Pamela Jean Horter-Moore, Author

Lily Tanzer is a native Texan, born and raised in Austin. Always intrigued by human behavior, she earned a degree in Psychology from the University of Texas in 1985. At the age of twenty six, she welcomed a renegade dog into her life who further extended her studies in behavior – human and canine.
This furry soulmate, Keisha, introduced her to the subtleties (and sometimes dramas) of life with a dog and inspired Lily to chronicle her experiences in her first book Travels with the Doggie Lama.
Lily continues to be enamored with her four-legged family members and has been delighted to learn of the rich, often secret, lives of her canine friends. She has come to understand that every dog has a story; a story that is meaningful and filled with the only thing that really matters in life: love (and maybe a few giggles).
The valiant and history-making adventures of Lily’s Maltese/Pekingese can be enjoyed in the upcoming series: The Adventures of General Darci. This series offers a behind-the-scenes look at how WWII was really won. Lily suspects Darci may have been involved in other international conflicts, too.
While Darci rids the world of malevolent dictators, Juno, Lily’s Corgi-mix rescue, shares her entertaining adventures with the strong-willed and musically gifted Gabbie Gafflegoose, in a soon-to-revealed series of children’s books.
Lily currently resides in southern California with her husband and two dogs. Her goal is to own just enough dogs to fill the house to capacity (without forcing her husband to relocate). She would love to hear from you about your own Doggie Lamas and the stories they tell. Lily Tanzer
