Ondine Sherman, animal rights advocate and mother of disabled twins
In her early thirties Ondine Sherman's life was happily on course. She had built up the animal rights group Voiceless, she'd married, travelled the world and had a daughter.
But life changed for Ondine and her husband Dror after the birth of their identical twin boys, Dov and Lev.
At around the age of six months, they were failing to meet some important developmental milestones. The long difficult road to diagnosis ended in shock for the entire Sherman family.
Ondine has written about her journey in a new book
Sky and Snow - Animal Allies series for young adults.

In 2019, my Animal Allies Series will be published by Pantera Press.
The books follow Sky, a deeply thoughtful animal-lover who is forced to make hard decisions about what she considers right and wrong.
Sky has been re-jacketed with a beautiful new cover and is re-launching this April. The sequel, Snow (set under Alaska's magical winter northern lights) is out in July 2019.

Many of us who are vegetarian or vegan (veg*an) are concerned about animal welfare and want to end cruel industries such as factory farming. . And, many of us, like me, have also adopted pets of our own and strive to provide them with a long, healthy and happy life.
