Author Rita Mae Brown has written the story of her life through the furry creatures she has cherished in the new book titled 'Animal Magnetism: My Life with Creatures Great and Small'.

Brown shares her philosophy of life, what has inspired her and also the lifelong lessons she has learnt about love, monogamy, trust and grief.

In her eyes, the honor and courage of animals compare favorably to that of most humans, a notion she knows many will scoff at, should they ever pick up this book.
