About Beth Williams
Beth Williams is a first-time author who hails from Colorado. This book was inspired by years of working with kids and therapy animals all over the country. In 2012, she co-founded 1st Ride Enterprises in order to help others fulfill their creative dreams. Building on her Masters in Publishing and six years working in that field, Beth loves helping authors through the pre-production and publication process. Writing a book of her own was a complete surprise, but she felt compelled to express how she was feeling in the Spring of 2014, following a particularly emotional session at the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center and from working with The Freedom Service Dog organization. When she isn't supporting 1st Ride or volunteering, Beth works as a preschool teacher. She lives with her husband and their four furry kids - Maya the dog, and three kitties - Xander, Jasmine and Luca - who show her first hand every day how animals enhance our lives!
