Cool Blogs Haute Dogs: JONI B. COLE


Do you have another book in the works? 
I’m dabbling in more short essays, priming the pump so to speak. But nothing big is brewing.
What are you reading right now? 
Water for Elephants. Wow!
How many books a year do you read? 
Maybe 20. I actually read as many books-in-progess, as well, because I teach writing workshops to adults in my community and at conferences around the country.
What does your dog like to do while you blog or read? 
Stare at me until he falls asleep curled up very close to the leg of my chair. He’s very snuggly!
What is your dog’s favorite activity? 
Burrowing under the covers, and eating the cat’s food when no one is looking.

  3. Eli is precious! DJ like to eat cat food too but I think I found a place that he can't get at it but the cat can. Fingers crossed.
