Sixteen stories, award-winning authors, and help for a sick dog…

Award-winning author Doranna Durgin has over 30 published novels and another 19 short pieces. Now her dog-themed stories are collected in THE HEART OF DOG, along with those by 8 other award-winning authors. Whether it’s Hannah the brace dog, Lucky and his bit of magic, Reuben the traveler, or Mesky the accidental diplomat, these dogs all have one thing in common: heart.

The Heart of Dog includes Doranna’s various backlist dog stories, and that’s all it was initially meant to include–until her dog-loving writer friends heard about her need to fund expensive veterinary treatment for her beloved young companion and dog sports partner, ConneryBeagle. In short order, the book filled out with nine more stories, all from wonderful authors.

The stories encompass a range of genres and moods–plenty of humor, plenty of sweetness and satisfaction, and above all, a profound understanding of the Heart of Dog.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Nobody writes dogs as well as Doranna. She understands their boundless joy, their loyalty and their worries so well she can make you believe that you are a dog. In this anthology, she’s collected her best dog stories as well as terrific dog stories from other fabulous authors like Tanya Huff, Julie Czerneda, and Jennifer Roberson.


How can you resist? Many intriguing, entertaining stories, and all to help poor allergic ConneryBeagle! The stories range from heartwarming to thought provoking to just plain fun. Try it, you’ll like it!


Doranna Durgan is a true talent, and her editorial skills are sublime. If you are a dog lover, cat lover needing to understand dog lovers, or just an all around animal lover, this is your book. It is only waiting for you to open it and begin the journey.


I’m not yet finished with The Heart of Dog, but I had to add my two cents to the rave reviews here. The stories of entertaining and often moving, and they were gathered together for an excellent cause. I wish I could have given it ten stars!

About The Author

Doranna’s quirkiness of spirit has led to an eclectic publishing journey, spanning genres over 30 novels to include mystery, SF/F, action-romance, paranormal, franchise, and a slew of essays and short stories.

Beyond that, mostly she still prefers to hang around outside her New Mexico mountain home with the animals, riding dressage on her Lipizzan and training for performance sports with the dogs. She doesn’t believe so much in mastering the beast within, but in channeling its power. For good or bad has yet to be decided…

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Doranna Durgin and ENT appreciate it.
