About the Book

Furry Tails: the Adventures of Mr. Mackie is a lighthearted story about our special pets and the possibility of where they go when they leave us here on Earth.  The first book in this series is Mr. Mackie and the Heavenly Dog Choir.  Mackie is welcomed into heaven and introduced to Dogdom where he meets up with some friends that arrived before him.  He is asked to become the choir director for the Heavenly Dog Choir.  Mackie reluctantly accepts the offer and quickly finds it to be a very rewarding experience not only for him but for many others as well.  The book is intended to teach all of us the power of acceptance and how we can learn and appreciate the differences of others.

About the Author

Staci Capehart was born in the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the heart of the Ohio Valley.  Throughout her life, the author has lived in many different parts of the United States, including Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Willingboro, New Jersey, Atlanta, Georgia, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Charleston, South Carolina and Dallas, Texas.

Staci went to elementary school in Willingboro, Point Pleasant, and Atlanta.  She gained her higher education in Baton Rouge.  During her years in Georgia and Louisiana she began to write, but also made time for piano lessons and drum lessons. 

Staci has written many stories and poems that have entertained her family since she was a little girl.  She continued writing throughout the years and continues to do so, as an adult, to the delight of family and friends. 

Staci currently lives in Dallas, Texas where she has worked for the last twenty years, and has had a successful career, in the hospitality industry.  Even though she has a very busy life, she has always made time to continue her writing.  Staci has always had a vivid and colorful imagination, and now that talent is being put into print for all to enjoy.

The inspiration for Furry Tails is none other than her beloved dog, Max.

Max or Mr. Mackie as he was lovingly called was Staci’s constant companion for eleven years, until he was called to DOGGY HEAVEN where he now resides, and directs the Heavenly Dog Choir.  Several of Mr. Mackie’s choir members are family animal friends who have also gone to live in DOGGY HEAVEN.
