About James E. Aarons DVM

Dr. Jim Aarons has a unique view of the world, having spent a lifetime doctoring animals. Since graduating from the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982, he has been responsible for the physical and mental soundness of a variety of critters and their human friends.

With his unique writing style, Dr. Jim artfully mixes the softness of romance against the harsh canvas of science and history. He shares his experiences from years of working in zoos and ostrich hatcheries, horse stud farms, cattle round-ups, cow dairies, and companion animal medicine cases. He has created the Katie Reynolds Series, which is the saga of a young veterinarian and her attempts to find a real reason for us to be here.

About the Series: The Katie Reynolds Stories
....I am Katie Reynolds from Táchii’nii Diné, the Red Running into the Water clan.

I am born for Bilagáana Diné, the Anglo clan.

I am a Diné woman, a Navajo Indian. I am also a veterinarian: Katie Reynolds DVM...

Katie Reynolds is a modern Navajo Indian. They call themselves the Diné. Early in her life Katie was bitten with the bug, the bug to help animals.

Both Katie and Rene, a younger college fellow, were sent to Iraq to work on a brucellosis outbreak that was jumping from sheep to people in the war torn areas of Iraq. A military crisis flared up, compromising the safety of aid workers. Katie was blown up by a grenade in the temple of Lalish. She survived, and slowly recovered. However as her mind cleared from the fog of hurt and trauma she realized she was no longer living in the 20th century.

1350 BC must have looked pretty scary to Katie Reynolds. Luckily for her she was found to be valuable, and was nurtured back to full health. Better yet, her dramatic appearance back there caused a chain of events where she was thought to be a goddess that had come to earth.

Ishtar coming to earth was a deal changer.
