Mother and Daughter Team Joins RICHER Press and Publishes Fourth Book
A Shark! Named Jamison Exceeds All Expectations

Many of the researchers from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy believe that the great white shark that washed up on a Chatham beach during the summer of 2015, and was tagged and named “Jamison,” may have pulled through after his unexpected ordeal. The story, the rescue and the amazing community teamwork to ensure that Jamison’s adventure ended with shark’s survival is still being admired around the world.

In the new book, A Shark! Named Jamison, Consie and Nina Berghausen take on the challenge of creating a version of Jamison’s adventure written for the age level of 5-12 (K-6). Their year-long effort to perfect both the text and illustrations of a colorful, fully illustrated book seems to have paid off.

As the author, Consie gives the young readers an opportunity to go inside the mind of “Jamison” and imagine how a juvenile white shark could find himself in such a position. In the thirty-eight page book, she challenges the young reader to imagine what Jamison must have been thinking as he was the center of attention in the waters and on a beach in beautiful Cape Cod. Her distinctive sense of rhyme and READ MORE.

RICHER Press Author’s Nationally-Known Dog Reaches Milestone Caring for Kittens

9780986354434_frontcover_65PHOENIX, ARIZONA– Boots “The Kitten Nanny” has reached a milestone by taking care of his 350th tiny feline at home and then surpassing that number. The 14-year-old Golden Retriever and chow mix and his owner foster rescue kittens to help them become more adoptable by socializing them and exposing them to new experiences. Boots has also been volunteering at an Arizona shelter for several years and has helped countless other kittens there.
Boots gained national attention when he began volunteering and helping care for the kittens in the shelter’s kitten nursery about once a week. The adorable story is even more touching given the fact that Boots was rescued from the Hurricane Katrina floodwaters in 2005.

Boots was found standing in about 10-inches of contaminated water in New Orleans and was in bad shape. He was rescued by an Arizona shelter worker, taken to Phoenix and nursed back to health. Shelter volunteer Susan J. Juergensen fell in love with Boots while helping care for him and decided to adopt him. Boots now pays that kindness forward by helping the kittens prepare for homes that may have dogs.

Her Mission of Helping Millions Cope and Reduce Their Fear of the Dental Chair

May 1, 2016 – When “Little Suzy” was growing up in a modest middle class family, she experienced the normal challenges and fears associated with childhood and adolescence. Many such challenges simply require allowing Mother Nature to take her course. With time, she overcame most of her childhood fears with experience and maturity.

However, the one fear that haunted “Little Suzy” throughout her early life is the one that also haunts millions of others — the fear of climbing into the dental chair. Today, this kind of fear is related to what is called dental anxiety and dental phobia. Both are extremely common. It is estimated that 9% to 15% of Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear.

In her new book titled, Have No Fear of the Dental Chair! A Guide for Reducing Dental Fear, “Little Suzy,” now Dr. Susan R. Cushing, tells the story of her childhood fear of dentists and finding a…Read More
