Janice Gary is an award-winning author, educator, and passionate advocate for those whose stories need to be told and heard.
An award-winning memoir about a life-changing journey spanning three decades, one continent and a world of possibilities.
“Short Leash isn't quite a dog book even though the cover and title relates to a big, lovable black Lab named Barney. Instead, it's an impossibly beautiful portrait of two damaged souls and how they lean on one another to heal, hurt, and find their way back to happiness after unspeakable tragedy. Through it all, Gary writes with a sure-hand, crafting beautiful, rhapsodic passages that span every emotion.”
