About the Author

Danny Blitz is Sheridan's mom who, knowing that her daughter was going to college soon, thought that "Much To Do Before A Dog" would be a great bonding farewell experience. Her next projects include a memoir and documentary about what she learned about parenting as a single mom by choice. Danny now lives alone with Sheridan's two dogs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her next pet may be a teacup pig. Visit: and for additional information.

Sheridan Blitz illustrated and co-wrote "Much To Do Before A Dog" at the age of 17, just before going off to college to become a scientist. Learning the hard lessons of responsibility in order to have her own dog was a huge primer for real life. She is grateful for the experience and the opportunity to be the human to not only one dog but two.
