+ New books will send tongues wagging
Sue-Ellen Welfonder’s passions: Scotland. The paranormal. Dogs. Welfonder, a Longboat Key resident, wishes dogs everywhere were as beloved as her Jack Russell terrier, Em. So, she has contributed a story, “A Man, a Woman and Haggis” to “Tails of Love,” an anthology of never published stories from 10 authors. Part of the authors’ proceeds will go to the Animal Adoption Foundation.
Tempted for more reading material? Welfonder also has out a new Scottish historical romance novel, “A Highlander’s Temptation.”
