The story of the Calico Cat stayed with Constance for many years before she decided to put pen to paper. Over a decade ago, she left Apache Junction and moved to New Mexico, where she stays busy reading, volunteering, and trying her hand at various crafts, which include crocheting and making her own greeting cards. The many animals she shared her life with in Apache Junction gave her enough fodder to someday be able to pen many more stories.
Jay Brenner joined Constance Nipper in writing the adventure of TulUP, a cow who had very bad allergies. TulUP lived on the UP Farm, where it was up to Farmer Brown to give her daily doses of allergy pills the veterinarian had prescribed for her.
However, this day turned into a day to remember for TulUP and Farmer Brown. It was a day a valuable lesson was learned.
