I started this book in Massachusetts in 1973 with the question: How did thirteen disjointed colonies form a new nation when they were held captive by the all-powerful British empire? And aside from Washington, Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson, who stepped up as the supporting cast? Where did they come from? What kind of determination and courage did it take to win against such incredible odds?
I found the stories of over twenty of this heroic supporting cast in bits and pieces in hundreds of places. This book is my attempt to put those stories in one concise book for the benefit of my family and friends.

Sally Humphries, a member of Pen-to Paper, recently published Cally and Friends, a delightful sequel to Cally Tales: Cally’s Adventures and Those of Her Friends.
Cally and Friends introduces new friends like the incomparable Suki, Calvin and Hobbs, Tess, Zoe, Paz, Reckless and the memorable Trucker from Montana. Cally also checks back with her old friends from Cally Tales, advising Max about his ears and disclosing Oliver’s adventures in the Serengeti.
Can cats and dogs be friends? Cally extends her paw of friendship to d-o-g-s, beginning with Bella and Buffy, the adorable Shih-Tzus. She finds the antics of Murphy and Wally, Rags, Freddy, Schnitzel, and PBJ somewhat bewildering but intriguing. It all ends with Tig, the cat who decided he was a dog. Of course, Cally’s faithful staff, Sally Humphries, writes down everything she says – well, almost everything.
You can find this humorous and enjoyable read at Amazon.
Congratulations, Sally and Cally
