About the Author

Jacqueline Wein enjoyed a long and hectic career in a New York City advertising agency and its several incarnations. She edited copy, served as proofreader and unassailable office grammarian, wrote correspondence for executives, organized forums for professional organizations, and edited two business books for their authors. Outside the office, she wrote a book of her own, Roommate, a suspense novel published by Crown.

Jacqueline has written a story about another kind of roommate ... the animals who share our lives, bond with us in intense, intimate ways, and nudge us into relationships.

The beloved dog who took her into the streets, shops, and sidewalk gossip exchanges of her Manhattan neighborhood many years ago gave her some background for this story.

She now splits her time between New York City and Florida, accompanied by her beautiful cat Asia.
