Meet Richard Halliday
Richard Halliday’s book “Jasper the Wonder Dog” is a creative masterpiece. Halliday portrays a topic, that is often difficult for children to stomach in a light and playful way. Although bittersweet, the story is important. It is love and loss, and acceptance, and even birth and the afterlife, all through a dog’s eyes. Halliday’s B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing comes through in his words, time and again.
The author grips the subject matter by the horns. His fiction writing beautifully recreates the true story of a relationship between a dog and his family, an exchange of memories, purpose, and lessons that last a lifetime.
The author currently resides in Rancho Polos Verdes, CA, enjoying his retirement with his wife Sherrill, Bella the puppy, and Shadow the kitty.

Something to Say…
“Ultimately, Jasper the Wonder Dog is far more than a children’s book about loss. It encompasses not just Jasper’s passing, but also the happiness and love that he received thanks to his family.”
