Biography: 

Jean Alfieri is the author of short story rhymers starring an often mischievous and always adorable Pug named Zuggy. Her love of poetry started at the age of five when she read Noisy Nora by Rosemary Wells. Jean is a native of Chicago, and has always had a special fondness for dogs, no matter where she’s lived: Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Wisconsin, or Arizona.

She and her fur-family currently reside in Colorado Springs, where she volunteers at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. She and her husband are dedicated to adopting vintage puppies (aka: older dogs). RESCUED is her favorite breed!
