Real life messages subtley weaved into fun, adventurous and spiritual children’s stories about the lives of your pets and Earth’s beautiful animals.




What do we tell our children where our furry, feathered and four-legged friends go to when they die? How do we support them during this challenging time?

The Rainbow Zoo - Wild Afterlife is a beautiful and enchanting world where creatures big and small go to live their best wild afterlife. The story encapsulates the loss of a beloved animal who, after dying, travels to the Rainbow Zoo where they have transformed into stronger, healthier versions of themselves.

Their journey to the wild afterlife is fun and exciting. They explode into the atmosphere like shooting stars, choosing whatever mode of transport their wild imaginations can conjure up!

What about your stories Debz?

I grew up in a small three-bedroom home and always shared a room with one of my two sisters. We never had TV back then and I recall lying in bed most nights telling them stories about the first word they could think of. Whatever they asked me to tell them a story about, I would just make some random story up that seemed to intrigue and delight them.

My connection to animals

I haven’t always felt connected to animals or understood the love and connection one can share with an animal or family pet. However, when my husband Shane bought our German Shepherd, Lucy, home from the Animal Welfare League, she became my walking partner, my running buddy, my shadow and my furry, four-legged BFF.
