Ellen Gilman Shares New Memoir with Plenty of Heart


Dog Ear Publishing releases “Mollie’s Tail” To Mollie with Love” by Ellen Gilman.

Saving a 4-year-old sheltie from being euthanized changes a family’s life forever in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When Sherry Neville (a.k.a. Ellen Gilman) answers a phone call from the family’s veterinarian, she has no idea it will change her life. The vet hopes Sherry will adopt a 4-year-old sheltie whose owners want to euthanize for “not listening.” Although Sherry says no, she stops by the vet’s office anyway to look at the dog. One look at the beautiful black and white dog’s intense gaze has her hooked. This new book, based on real-life events, shares what the family gave Mollie and what she gave them.

“Mollie’s Tail: To Mollie with Love” includes surprises, adventures and anecdotes to warm the heart. It takes Mollie a long time to settle in with the Nevilles even though she seemed to choose them.  They realize her previous owners didn’t treat her right. Eventually Mollie enjoys walks, barking at wildlife and – most of all – spending time with the family simply sitting. As time goes on, Mollie will perform one more feat – opening the Nevilles’ hearts to adopt other shelties. Readers of all ages will be charmed by this tale about an extraordinary dog and her extraordinary family.

Author Ellen Gilman spent 10 years in retail after graduating from the University of Maryland. She and her husband, Steven, have a family-run business that she has helped with for the past 15 years. They have two rescued shelties, Annie and Luke, adopted after Mollie passed away.
