About Amy L Peterson

Amy Peterson became a stepmother in 1994 when she married a man who had four kids, an old VW Rabbit and a boat load of fishing tackle. Unable to find other true, uplifting stories about becoming a stepmother, Amy used her casual, entertaining writing style to tell her amusing but heartwarming story in From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds. The conflicts she faces (and avoids) are universal to all stepmothers, and the conflicts with her beau are amusing universal struggles between the sexes. Amy’s goal was to write a story that would have universal appeal to women, while being particularly helpful for women contemplating becoming stepmothers.

At the same time Amy was muddling through the world of stepmother hood she was also faced with one pet after another that her husband kept bringing home. The first hedgehog was joined by a second hedgehog and the baby hedgehogs came 28 days later. One ferret soon got three ferret pals to play with. The first puppy had too much energy, so along came another dog. And so it goes in Amy's second memoir, Something Furry Underfoot, a humorous, touching memoir about raising and falling for a whole array of pets. It includes 50 tips, most of which are about pets, some of which are about the spouses that love pets. This fun, entertaining read will help pet owners and potential pet owners make better decisions about their pets.

Amy has been published in numerous magazines and does weekly blog postings on her web site, amylpeterson.com, about nature, pets and life. Like her books, most of her blog postings are light-hearted if not also sometimes information. Amy works for the state of Michigan and lives with her husband and a variety of fuzzy animals.

Review by: Joy Smith on June 11, 2013 : star star star star star
I love the cover! (Wonderful close-up, Purrkins.) And all the other pictures are perfect! Okay, the cat is obviously photogenic; that helps. I was pleased to see so many photos showing a fun-loving cat, but one that stood up for its cat rights. I enjoyed the rhymes, which were perfectly matched to the photos; they have a real cat-like touch to them. That is one big, gorgeous cat; and it was fun watching him play with the other pets in the household. The advice to potential cat owners at the end of the book is a great idea 'cause not enough people get books about their new pets. And they should! Really, really recommended.
