Who's Publishing What: Barking at the Moon

When Tracy Beckerman and her husband bring home a puppy for their two young kids, they realize that they got a lot more than they bargained for. From tracking wet cement through the house to shredding the family’s underwear, Riley is a one-dog wrecking ball. Yet, this lovable retriever also brings joy, laughter and a renewed sense of wonder into the household. 

At times hilarious and heartwarming, Barking at the Moon: A Story of Life, Love, and Kibble speaks to life’s challenges, and to mothering children both human and furry. With Tracy’s trademark wit and heart, she reminds us that no matter what stage of life we’re in, we can learn a lot from the dogs who teach us how to stop and enjoy the ride. The book, available June 29, can be pre-ordered here.

Tracy is an award-winning author, speaker and syndicated humor columnist who has appeared on numerous TV shows, including NBC’s Today Show, CBS This Morning, CBS Sunday Morning with Mo Rocca and Good Day New York. Her honors for writing include the prestigious Writer’s Guild of America award, a CLIO, an International Film and Television award and a New York Emmy®. She has been voted “America’s Top Blogger” by The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television, has won a National Society of Newspaper Columnists award for humor writing and was the Global Humor Award Winner of the coveted Erma Bombeck Writing Competition. 

She's also written two other hilarious books: Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir and Rebel Without a Minivan: Observations on Life in the 'Burbs.
