Life to the Max: Maxims for a Great Life by a Dog named Max makes the perfect gift! Anyone who receives this book as a gift will truly be blessed! You'll be amazed by the life lessons you can learn from Max!

Told from the perspective of the family dog with great optimism and humor, this inspirational tale follows Max and his family through the big decisions, simple pleasures and unpredictable emergencies of life. From his experiences come simple life lessons—his Maxims for a Great Life—that are sure to make the reader smile, reflect and embrace life’s inevitable transitions. A thoughtful way to observe life, this hybrid chapter/picture book celebrates life with pets, encourages a positive attitude in the face of tough times, eases the pain of pet loss, celebrates teachers in all forms and helps parents talk with kids about pet responsibility and some of life’s biggest issues—abandonment, adoption, friendship, love, illness and letting go.

Available at lifetomax.com (where 25% of the book price is donated to animal rescue) and amazon.com. (where 10% of the book price is donated to National Airedale Rescue), this award-winning book features a gift dedication page where it can be personalized with the gift recipient’s and gift-giver’s names.

About the Author:

Robin Reynolds, an award-winning writer, has been writing in some capacity most of her life. She was first published by the local high school newspaper at the ripe old age of 11. The features article, ““What It’s Like to be a Seventh Grader: It Only Hurts When I Laugh” seemed to set her path. Since that time, she has worked as a sketch writer, Editor in Chief, a features writer and a theatre/film critic for two different newspaper publications.

In 2003, Robin transitioned the name of her business from Robin Reynolds Creative to NICE Creative which stands for novel ideas communicated effectively. NICE provides strategy, branding, graphic design, copywriting and Web development for a number of corporate, consumer, retail, B2B and public service clients. In 2007, Robin expanded her business to include independent publishing.

Robin earned her B.A. from the University of Iowa in Iowa City with a major in Speech and Dramatic Art with a minor in Journalism. She took additional credits in advertising and mass communication through the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin. She always has had a deep affection for Airedale Terriers which have been a part of her life since she was a child. She is married and is a mother to a teenage son, and two Airedales, Amber & Krissy.
