Welcome!

Searching for heartfelt, unique, and positive writing that’s intelligent too? Happiness Between Tails is the place!

Here you’ll also learn about my novel, “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat.”

Flamenco & the Sitting Cat proposed cover.
The working cover for the adult literary novel I’m writing.

Writing, reading, publishing, animals, dancing, cooking, kindness, and most of all — fun! — interest my guest writers and me, as I hope they will you.

While the writing is intended to help readers from the inside out, Happiness Between Tails also teaches me the basics of promoting the soon-to-be-self-published general fiction novel I authored, “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat.” In addition, I’m working on its sequel novel, “Tango & the Sitting Cat.”

If you enjoy the ideas and sensibility in the writing found here, you’ll love my novels once they’re published.

I invite you to engage with my readers and me! Your feedback is appreciated.

    • Phil, you are so kind! Indeed, your site is wonderful — & you cover quite a lot there too. All the blogging advice I read says we should specialize, but it’s difficult to do when there are so many fun things to discuss!

      • da-AL, Thanks for the nice reaction to my website! The advice to specialize our websites is a good general rule if the number of viewers/stats is our objective. However, when I started my website in January 2012 my objective was not to be pigeon-holed & to write about anything I wanted to. I very quickly realized that to write on political topics immediately alienated 50% of the population in the USA. So my political stuff is limited to public policy where my liberal Democratic viewpoint becomes no secret. And so in the right margin on my website at the bottom, the topics range from humor to books to history to economic policy to PASTA recipes & more!!! But from a post every two weeks, I went to every three weeks, to once a month & now once every other month. Each post, start to finish, takes me 12 hours. I now find it a burden in the balance of my life with other priorities. And yet it has been such a joy & I have learned so much & met so many people like you! Some amazing things have come out of it….editing two poetry books in English by a Dutch author & meeting her for lunch in 2016 with my wife in Amsterdam at the start of a Rhine river cruise. And it all started with my first post which was really a newspaper column/commentary that I wrote & was published in a New Jersey newspaper. I hope you found this interesting talk. Thanks for listening! And thanks for the “Like” on my “8th PastaPost” & your comment! Phil

  2. Very nice post . Simple to understand , energetic to encourage. Thanks a ton.
    Few lines : You look great while sitting with dog,
    Either it is sunny or it is fog,
    Loving these creatures gives a peace of mind,
    What you do defines humankind.
    Long live your love with these beautiful pets,
    May God bless you with thousands of sunsets. 🙂
