Publisher books and cards, featuring the children's book "Quigley Lopez: A Friend For Life"

About the Book

Set on a small island in the middle of the Salish Sea, Quigley Lopez offers readers, both young and old, a timeless lesson in what it means to love. Both gentle and kind, A Friend for Life is the first in a series of coming of age stories sure to warm the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog and is destined to become a faithful companion for years to come.

About the Author

Dave O’Hare grew up in Northern California and spent 40 years as an award-winning advertising writer and creative director. That’s 280 years if he was a dog. So a book, his first, about a dog makes perfect sense. And like Quigley, he now lives on an island off the coast of Washington with his wife, Yvonne. They’ve been married 217 years.

About the Illustrator

Liesbeth Heikens is a Dutch artist living in Utrecht. Her friendship with Dave originates from the 23 years she lived with her family in San Francisco. After graduating from the Royal Academy in Amsterdam, she quickly moved to making her own art inspired by nature. Her paintings often combine animals with a personal experience. For illustrations she prefers to use watercolors. The movement and spontaneity of the brush appeal to her and bring a freshness fitting for a children’s story. She’s looking forward to more Quigley adventures.
