BESTSELLING FRANCHISE AUTHOR ON DOGS: Dutton started strong with Maria’s first book, Soldier Dogs, and her following has only grown larger. She’s landed on the New York Times list twice because she knows what dog stories readers are looking for.
PUBLICITY MAGNET:The Daily Show, 700 Club, Good Morning America, and The Today Show all love Maria Goodavage because she is poised on camera and delivers great stories; dogs and handlers add up to great interviews.
GOING PERSONAL: Maria has always excelled at giving her subjects personal touches, and in Doctor Dogs she opens up about her own experience with cancer detection in her family, registering her dog as a therapy companion, and more.
BROAD AUDIENCE: With Maria’s loyal fanbase already clamoring for her next book, Doctor Dogs has great potential for expanding her audience. Beyond her military readership, her new book will appeal to those interested in popular science, medicine, and mental health.
Praise for Secret Service Dogs
“A wonderful account and history of these unsung heroes at work every day to make the world safer….an important addition to the works that show how dogs really are man’s best friend.” -Library Journal
“Goodavage compels readers with stories of the bonds between Secret Service dogs and their handlers. A must-read for the dog lover.” -Booklist
“Maria Goodavage takes us into a world that few know about and shows us just how special these dogs are. Although their work is serious, none of it could happen without the special relationships between the dogs and their handlers that come shining through.” -Gregory Berns, author of How Dogs Love Us
