Gwen Cooper's New Website/Homer's Heroes

My good friend, Gwen Cooper just revamped her website,! Gwen is the best selling author of Homer's Odyssey, about Homer, the blind black wondercat! I have previously interviewed Gwen in a post you can read here.

I finally met Gwen in purr-son this September :)
A new section of Gwen's website is called "Homer's Heroes" - in which each month, Gwen and Homer highlight their favorite volunteers and rescue workers! You can nominate your own Homer's Hero on Gwen's website here.

My mom, Julie Shubin of the blog Helitzer Blouse Girl, nominated me when Gwen and Homer were looking for the first inaugural Homer's Hero!

Reading the post my mom wrote about me was so amazing, she totally wrote from the heart and shared about my passion for animal rescue. I really liked how she mentioned that part of the reason I really didn't want to go far away from home for college was so I could still stay involved with my rescue work. Thank you so much for nominating me, mom! I love you!

And thank you ever so much to Gwen and Homer! I'm so glad to call you my friends >^..^<

So please check out Gwen's updated website, the Homer Heroes section and the post about me as Homer's first Hero!


  1. We read your mom's nomination letter and we agree, you're a HERO!

  2. Congratulations, Rachel! I'm honored to call you my friend.

  3. YAY!! Soooo deserved! I am hoping that one day I can meet your Mom. Oh and I ADORE Gwen!

  4. This is just so wonderful on so many levels!! I adore you and your Mom and love that she did this for you!!
