Anthology: Rescued Volume 2
Available on:

From the publisher: With a tranquil presence and calming purrs, cats have the ability to heal. Cats also heal through their funny antics, fierce loyalty, and the hard-won lessons they sometimes teach the humans closest to them. Rescued Volume 2 contains 12 stories of cats, the humans who healed them ... and how they in turn healed their humans. As with Volume 1 of the Rescued series, the stories are told through each cat's own unique perspective. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and feel good about life. You may even find some healing and inspiration for yourself. The stories for the Rescued series are compiled and edited by renowned author and publisher Janiss Garza.

"Untold Stories: Life, Love, and Reproduction presents a wide range of reproductive experiences that are rarely explored together in one place. The authors share their most vulnerable experiences with emotional honesty, self-awareness and sometimes humor. The multiple perspectives in this book challenges stereotypes about people whose reproductive decisions and experiences fall outside of the dominant story of pregnancy and parenting.”

In An Age of Science, along with all of the other essays published in the anthology Untold Stories: Life, Love, and Reproduction, is being adapted into a play that will be performed in 2017 at The Brava Theatre in San Francisco, CA.
