Vicki Tashman always loved historical fiction. Inspiration struck when her daughter graduated from college and moved back home with 2 cats in tow. She imagined the cats belonging to Cleopatra and, wow, the stories they could tell! After researching many people in history, she settled on writing her first children's historical fiction book about Thomas Jefferson's dog, Buzzy and Thomas Move into the President's House. Her second book, Dash and Victoria Find True Love is about Queen Victoria and her dog, Dash. Other books in the works are about Benjamin Franklin and his squirrel Mungo, and the Wright Brothers and their dog Flyer.
