So who is Chrysa Smith? Let’s see– I’ve been writing freelance magazine features for over 20 years–on everything from celebrity chefs and resorts to homing pigeons and pot-bellied pigs. In return, I not only received bylines in magazines such as Pool & Spa Living, Bucks County Magazine, Philly Style, Design NJ, The Cooperator and others, I gained invaluable experiences—both in writing and learning about people, places and things. With a Mom’s Choice Silver Medal for excellence in Juvenile Fiction, a top pick on Amazon Children’s Bookshelf and an endorsement from The Dove Foundation, I’m well-versed in both fiction and non-fiction writing.

Praise from the Midwest Book Review
“Once upon a Poodle‘ will lend particularly well to parental read-aloud. Colorful illustrations capture the fun personalities and events as Woody experiences a wide range of potential brother candidates, and kids will relish the lively, positive story of a little dog who holds on to hope and never gives up.” -D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
