Do you also want to make changes in this world?

Book #1: Lily Bowers Speaks for the Animals

(p.s. this is a working title, I want to finish writing the book before I write the title...)

Lily Bowers is a 10 year old girl who discovers why she was put on this wonderful earth at an early age. With her new gift, she is able to save animals and someone who is very, very sick. In this first book of a series, Lily finds the strength and courage to do something about the inhumane torture of animals. She's not alone though, she has the help of her friends, old and new. Lily's adventure is mix of fantasy, magic and compassion with the reality of pre-teen life of building self-confidence and strengthening her friendships.

4 Things You Need to Know About Lily Bowers

1. Lily Bowers is a 10 year old US American expat living in Germany.
Lily spent the first half of her life in Colorado, USA. When she was 6, her father got a job he couldn't refuse in Germany and the family packed up and moved. Her dad's American, but her mom's German, so the switch wasn't too much of a challenge since she was already bilingual.

2. Lily has a special gift that she discovers right before starting 5th grade at a new school.
This talent enables her to find new friends and do things she never thought possible, such as getting even closer to nature.

3. Lily lives near a magical forest along the Grimm Brother's Fairy Tale Route in Germany.
Lily spends most of her time in the woods behind her house. She seems to know every nook and cranny, but what she doesn't know is that the forest has known Lily ever since she was born.

4. Lily has a pet turtle named Ralph.
Ralph was a 'Welcome to Germany' present from her dad. When Ralph was a baby, he made a lot of noise, which is pretty uncommon for a normal box turtle.

Following my Life's Purpose

About Jess Lohmann, the Author

I was born and raised to love and respect all animals and nature. The forest was my backyard growing up on Long Island, New York and my family and I went on yearly camping trips to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature and spend quality time together. We also adopted dogs and cats and rescued, cared for and reintroduced wildlife in need back to where they belong.

Last summer and this past August, I lost both my mom and dad at a very early age (66 & 65).
Nature is helping me grieve and heal. Now, I would like to give something back, other than living a vegan lifestyle and depriving myself of my favorite foods (NY pizza, cheesecake & lasagne).

Lily Bowers and I have a lot in common. As Lily learns too, animals need a strong voice to help them survive and live the happy life they deserve, without cruelty and fear. She also realizes that humans are not above animals, au contraire. There is no hierarchy in nature. And animals are not ours to do with what we want.

We are all created equal and every animal - human included - deserves love and respect.

Do you feel the same way? Together, we can help Lily make changes in the way animals are treated.

I would be honored to send you a free Kindle copy of my first book, so please sign up to my mailing list above. It's currently a work in progress, but as soon as the release date is near, you'll be the first to know.
