Christine Davis
In 1995 she transitioned out of the corporate
workplace to pursue her true heart’s calling...her
soul work. She was looking for a way to celebrate
the creatures with whom we share this planet, and
to thank them for the many gifts they had brought
her. That journey led her to a Native American
teacher, who used sound as a method of healing.
The author learned to listen to the songs of the
rivers and rocks and trees. Her connection to
animals was deepened, and she sensed something
life-changing was about to happen.

It was during this time that the author’s beloved
dog, Martha, became very ill, and Ms. Davis had to
unexpectedly continue on her journey without the
presence of her four-legged best friend. She
grieved the loss deeply, not knowing everything was
part of a much larger plan. She didn’t know she
would give birth to three books,
For Every Dog An
Angel, For Every Cat An Angel
and Old Dog and the
Christmas Wish
....books that celebrate our magical
companion animals...books overflowing with
paintings of starry skies.

Ms. Davis says she has learned much from her
passions. The animals have taught her about letting
go, for they so often leave long before we are ready
to say goodbye. The heavens have inspired her to
never give up on her dreams, for on those days
when the dream seems a little far away she
remembers it is only resting up in the stars, waiting
for her to call it back home.

Christine Davis lines in Portland, Oregon with her
kitties Dickens, Pippen, Molly and Star. Angel dogs
Martha and Jake are flying through the starry skies,
but they check in with the author from time to time,
until they can all be together again.

When author Christine Davis was growing up in New
York City she had two great passions – spending
her days with her animals and spending her nights
gazing at the starry skies, pondering the distant
heavens. Her mother was certain she would either
become a veterinarian or an astronomer. But life
has a funny way of taking people down unexpected
roads, and in 1977 she wound up leaving the east
coast and moved to Portland, Oregon. Her career
path led her into the business world, which satisfied
the left side of her brain but kept the right, creative
side quiet, longing for expression. She just couldn’t
stop thinking about those stars.
