Only one Mississippi author has work included in the book, "An Anthology of Pet Stories from all Across America".
Annie B. McKee is her name and she was at the Meridian Petco signing copies of the book. She's donating the money she makes from the book.
Today, I'm out to benefit the Lauderdale County Animal Shelter because I designated that my portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to them as a fundraiser. The publisher is out of Dallas and when she contacted me about writing a few stories for this collection she gave me that option," explained McKee.
McKee says she would rather donate the check to the animal shelter than keep it for herself.
