Kim Veilleux and her sister, Susan Scott, were raised on a small farm in rural Maine. They have both had dogs as part of their families all their lives. It has been said that some people are born cat people and others are meant to live with dogs. This can easily be said about these two sisters, who now reside separately in two different corners of the country: Maine and Washington State.
Kim is the designated storyteller, and Susan is the artist for their first joint effort at describing their lives with pets in the story Wheres Duke?(2009, paperback, 32 pages)
