About the Author

Darlene Durfee
darlenedurfe Port Hadlock, WA Jefferson County
I am retired and live on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula of Washington. My goal is to give back to this world for my own wonderful life. Although I do participate and volunteer in many social justice and non-profit endeavors, it never seems enough. I think that our species can learn acceptance from the animal kingdom and I tried to portray that by telling the story of Mikey. Although I love to write, I don't find time enough for it. I find that retired life is much too busy! I am an animal lover and have had many animals in my lifetime. Mikey, the Vietnamese Pot Belly pig was the most interesting, bright, and wonderful animal I have been lucky enough to know. I hope you enjoy the book.

Very few books, to me, are laugh out loud funny and this one is. Not only is it a true and extremely warm story complete with photos of these two unlikely animal friends, but also it is well written by Darlene as told to her by her kitty and her pig! I highly recommend it for grown ups as well as children.
