Ruby and the Moon is a serial, episodic story about a German Shepherd with chronic kidney failure, a storytelling Moon and a plethora of Welsh Corgis in many walks of life–including a magician, a robot dog, a fairy mount and a dinosaur. Illustrations are provided by the lovely Emily Love, who is a much better artist than she thinks she is. Inspiration for this story came from two very real, very adorable dogs (and the very real nicknames for said very real, very adorable dogs) who are very close to the author’s heart. I thought I would engage in a writing exercise of voice and character, and liked the result so much I decided to continue the story and share it with all of you. I hope you like it as much as I enjoy writing it!
Current and previous chapters are listed in order of posting. New chapters are posted as Emily and I have time to create them (which is never as often as we’d like).
