Ranch Hero

Children’s book series

Not all guardian angels have wings, folks!

A dog named Ziggy crosses the Rainbow Bridge, only to discover he has become an angel guardian to his farm pals on Sneaky Creek Ranch.

Filled with delightful characters, vivid illustrations, and tons of action, kids of all ages (that includes you too, adult humans) will really get a kick out of this three-part series.


Book 1: This is a tale of a very cool farm dog named Ziggy, who is drawn to save a squirrel from certain demise. In doing so, he sacrifices his own life . . . or does he? Through a chain of spine-tingling events, Ziggy discovers his true calling: Ranch Hero, guardian of farm pals everywhere. After all, not all angels have wings.

NOTE: This first book of the Ranch Hero series contains sensitive content regarding the death of a beloved pet. It is the author’s sincere hope that the series will allow for open discussion, healing, hope, and even some laughs and fond memories along the way. 

Book 2: Sneaky Creek Ranch has never been safer now that Ziggy, the Ranch Hero, is around to keep an eye on things. But with Velma the Cow stuck in the mud and the ever-present donkeys harassing the farm pals, Ziggy finds his angel work is never done. Joined by his loyal farm pals on earth, Bam Bam and Chubadoo, and their cousin, Libbi Lou, the Ranch Hero solves this cow caper with muscle, intuition, and a lot of creativity. And Velma gets the thrill of her life!

Book 3: A vacation is long overdue for the farm pals! Their destination? The lovely beaches of Australia, where they plan to enjoy some fun and relaxation. When a sunny day takes a turn for the worst-thanks to one hungry, toothy shark-Ziggy the Ranch Hero is needed more than ever! Will he get there in time to save the day?
