J. H. Soeder


From the age of two, Jon didn’t think having intelligent conversations with his pets and the many wild animals he encountered was anything unusual - until years later when he would relate his true stories to friends and family. “You should write a book!” was always the response…and so, he did!
True Tails relates Jon’s experiences with creatures big and small, from the tiniest of insects to the largest creatures living on earth today, the majestic whales. Not a “whisperer,” but simply a friend of those who inhabit the animal kingdom, Jon shares his personal stories in the hope of raising public awareness that humans aren’t the only life forms on our planet capable of expressing thoughts and feelings, and that they deserve our admiration and protection. Thus, all of the net proceeds from each copy of True Tails sold will go to animal rights organizations.

Jon is a graduate with honors with two degrees from the University of Miami. Among Jon’s accomplishments is his participation in a ninety five hundred mile Bicentennial relay run through the continental United States and years of missionary work. He currently resides in Ventura, California pursuing his art and writing. He also works with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services designing their promotional brochures and scientific publications.
