All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Alfred, Norm, Gorgeous, Finn, Little Lizzy, Eddie, bonded siblings Hope & Faith, Orion, Tanzi, Beliza, Sheldon, Rufus, Sparkey, Hoilly, Brenner, bonded siblings Tanner & Tasha, Nathan, Mariana, Trudy, Bear, Jenny, Yvonne, Riley, Mason, Chunk, Tyco, (see photos below) out of kill shelters. So far in 2017 we’ve helped free 655 dogs. In 2016, 250 dogs were freed. In 2015, 148 dogs were freed.

AND please for everyone who’s purchased a book could I humbly ask you to write a review when you’ve completed the read.  Amazon promotes and ranks books according to number of reviews in addition to sales. Every voice helps spread the word and that is an energy that can help a dog.

RECENT REVIEW FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS
AMAZON U.S.
on August 11, 2017
Good book. I usually read nonfiction holocaust books, but this was a really good read.
on July 28, 2017
Beautifully written and absolutely heartbreaking yet uplifting. It depicts both sides of human nature. The horrendous, despicable side and the caring, compassionate side as well. I loved this book and had hard time putting it down once it got going,(which was in the beginning.)
AMAZON U.K.
on 7 August 2017
What I liked about this book was a number of things. It wasn’t just about the Holocaust and a woman’s struggle to survive; it had many more facets to the story. We follow Jewish Helen as she grows up in increasingly hostile Germany, and through her eyes we see how the Nazis came to power. Ms Mahurin writes in an engaging style and captures well the almost descent into insanity as Helen and her brother are in hiding. More than all that it is about a woman wanting to express her femininity and to be a feeling, sensual, human being. A simple dress reminds her who she is and who she wants to be, despite all the ugliness around her. It is a gripping story about hope and staying true to yourself.

I really liked this book. I had to emotionally prepare myself for the known journey the book would take, but it was worth the read.

You meet the main character, Helen, and her wonderful family. As history taught us, life was normal for Helen, her family, neighbors and community. Then change came, and her world crumbled fast.

This book is just as unapologetic as the real tragedies that occurred to these innocent people. And you follow Helen every step of the way.

A great book thats informative and thought provoking. This book gives inspiration for people to say the truth no matter the costs. There are people who believe this and live accordingly.
RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN
AMAZON U.S.
on August 5, 2017

Based on a real life event, Ben and Sara meet when he has a low chance of survival and she’s starting an experimental treatment that gives her some hope of survival. She’s afraid and ashamed of her condition. Her emotions are raw and real. Her attraction to Ben is instant and she takes a chance and gets his contact information but the next move is complicated. Together they’re able to build a friendship and a sense of companionship as well as a romance. It goes without saying that any story with a dog is a better read and His Name was Ben has an adorable mini-rottweiler.

I’ve said in prior reviews that Mauhrin’s writing style is simple and direct. In the case of His Name was Ben, the device works for maximum impact. The subject matter is emotionally draining and the slight disconnect of the author’s style helps the reader absorb the magnitude of what the protagonists face and the inevitability of a connection and benefit of support each provides the other. Both protagonists have issues outside of their end of life diagnosis. If you have a family with a lot of problems, they’re not suddenly going to stop having problems just because you’re nearing the end.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Great on all accounts.

    That rising number has got to feel wonderful. I know it fills my heart up to the brim!

    • It’s really hard to explain all the emotions involved in helping the dogs. Each one that gets out–the ones that wag and smile–makes me feel so good. But then I’m continuously drawn to so many more that remained alone in kennels. I know from reading your posts you’re a realist: on the one hand you are joyful about Emma & Ronnie and in the same moment apprehensive about their safety. With situations like these it’s always a double edge sword. I’m grateful beyond words that I can help make a small dent. I’m also equally grateful for every kind soul that reaches out to help another, whether it be a dog incarcerated or a deer astray or a human in need of attention. You’ve a good and kind heart and I’m grateful to have our connection. ❤
