The British husband and wife team, calling themselves Karen David, believe strongly that people are far too busy in their manic modern lives to find time to sit down with their family and enjoy a traditional fantasy story. Their aim is to give readers around the world an excuse to do just that. They have spent the past six years composing this heart-warming tale.
Their beloved late Jimmy, a Hungarian Puli, is the entire reason the writing project was conceived. The couple described him as a ‘maverick' and ‘daily proof that good things in the world always triumph over the bad every time'.
Children wanted to know why Jimmy looked like a woolly sheep. They began creating stories about him and found that children enjoyed listening to them, which was when the Kingdom of Puli was born.
Karen is a 52-year-old housewife, who had a dream of writing a story that a family can all enjoy together. Karen has suffered with a crippling form of Lupus for six years, although there is no known cure for lupus, there is treatment available for the lupus patient. Karen has been able to put her heart and soul into the book allowing her to forget about her Lupus when it hurt the most, as well as coming to terms with the tragic passing of their dog and dear close friend.
She co-wrote the book with her husband David, and both of them feel as though writing the book has brought them closer together as a couple.
