About the Author

As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, “hooked on great writing… I didnt know about this part of me until I went to college-didnt know I loved beautiful stories.” And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.

Since that night, Rylant hasnt stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. “I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who dont get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty.”

She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.

Lisa Combs, September 25, 2010 (view all comments by Lisa Combs)
Our pet family members nest in our hearts for years entertaining us, consoling us, loving us, giving us all they have. When a pet dies, we are devastated as much as when our human family members pass. I remember when my Long Haired Dachshund died while I was away to college, it took a long time to get Mom to breathe and explain why she was sobbing on the phone. My mom was not a crier, I knew it was something awful. I wish she had had Dog Heaven by Rylant. When I lost my adorable Lhasa of 16 years, friends rallied knowing I would be a basket case. My sister sent me this book with a photo of me with my nephew and my Lhasa. He always thought it was his dog and he just lived far away with me. Rylant's book has given me solace, peace and hope. I have gifted it to others at the time of loss. This is not only a great book, it is heart mending when our heart is broken (beyond repair). It helps the knitting of healing to begin allowing the fond memories to surface again. For this, Cynthia Rylant is a hero. She has the Cat Heaven, also. Follow the paw prints of your heart, gift these books. It is what your pup would do if he could.
