This is the endearing, true story of Elmo, the unwanted stray, and the extraordinary plan God has for each life. The continuous ribbon woven throughout the story is the mystery in discovering God's purpose not only for Elmo, but also for one's self.Elmo brings the reader on an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows, coiling though the contrasting relentless and heart warming episodes of his life as a stray dog and his unquenchable quest to find a "forever home".His adventures and circumstances bring pity, sorrow, laughter, joy, suspense, and compassion as as each episode unfolds holding a final unexpected twist.

An invisible tier of countless animals and people are represented beneath the story of Elmo, the unwanted stray.

There after she enjoyed a twenty-one year career teaching primary school. Sharon lives, with her husband, James, on a farm in North Carolina where a stray dog prompted thee creation of the children's book The True Story of Elmo. The illustrations are hand painted with oils on canvas.
