I'm off to a great start this fall sharing my message to be positive, make a difference, and keep on rolling despite obstacles! I'd love to visit your library, school, or organization in person (depending on location) or we can visit via Skype too.... with a little help from my author mom, Barbara Techel (a.k.a taxi driver). Id love to hear from you! Be sure to watch our calendar page on our website for updates to added appearances!

- Barbara Techel
- Barbara Techel is the author of the multi-award winning Frankie, the Walk ‘N Roll Dog book series. When her dachshund, Frankie, suffered a spinal injury, Barbara had her custom-fitted for a wheelchair. Frankie persevered, and Barbara realized the beautiful opportunity she had to share Frankie and give others hope and inspiration to be the best they can be. Along with sharing Frankie’s story with children, Barbara and Frankie routinely volunteer as a therapy dog team at a local hospital, senior assisted facility, and hospice community, spreading joy wherever they go.
