Georgia author ANDREA LANE was inspired to write her children’s book, Abby the Crabby Tabby Discovers Gratitude, after discovering the power of being grateful.
To share this lesson with her two young sons, and inspired by her beloved tabby cats, Lane decided to write a picture book which combined her values of gratitude and love of all animals.
“I hope to offer all children a fun way of thinking about gratitude,” said Lane, “plus a light-hearted way for parents to talk to their kids about it.”
Expressing gratitude for all you have is one of the principles of Reiki, a Japanese form of energy healing. Lane, who credits Reiki with changing her life, is a certified Reiki master.
For several years Lane worked as a public policy advocate for animal protection. She continues to support organizations that work for the humane treatment and protection of all animals, from cats to cows. A percentage of the proceeds from Abby the Crabby Tabby sales will benefit a different nonprofit each month. The May recipient is Furkids, the largest no-kill shelter in the Southeast. Abby the Crabby Tabby will be released on National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day – April 30th.
In addition to a BA in political science from Georgia State University, Lane holds a JD from Emory Law School. She is also the founder of an interior design firm and co-founder of the jewelry line, Chatwal Lane.
Lane lives north of Atlanta in Johns Creek, where she writes whenever she has time in her “office” (her bed.) She is grateful for the life she shares each day with her husband, two children, and three entertaining, inspiring tabbies.
