I began writing in my late fifties. It gave me relief from my heart that was bursting with so many mixed feelings. I had just returned home after caring for my folks. I've written mostly children's stories - many of them with dear, talented friends. Marc Chalvin a Parisian artist, makes the stories sing. Without his drawings - well I can't even imagine. I write mostly about our relationship to animals. I believe with all our accomplishments, we haven't mastered a simple law of nature – being kind to animals and by extension to one another. If we could turn to a vegan diet, the waters would be pure again, our health would improve, starvation would be a thing of the past, and our precious earth would calm down…Chris Stover wrote in Mister Pepper's Secret: "I want everyone to think of me as a friend—the friend who is always waiting for them, no matter what." That's the way I'd like you to feel about the books offered here. I hope you enjoy the website.
As ever,

personal quote to support Freefromharm.org

august 12, 2012

Only after changing my diet was I able to see he connection: live animals equaled my dead meal. I had been living in a dream. Now I want to help release animals from the nightmare that is inflicted on them and our environment by disconnected thinking.

Meet Randall the Chow

june 19, 2012

"What could a throwaway dog named Randall teach us humans about living more consciously? Apparently quite a bit! A Dog Named Randall portrays the heartwarming rescue story of Randall the dog who chooses tofu, carrots and broccoli while eschewing meat. And it's based a true story to boot! This uplifting and entertaining story is also peppered with wonderful illustrations depicting Randall's adventures. Share it with you kids. They'll love it! And it might even get them to think about the other animals in their lives as well." -Robert Grillo, founder and editor of Free from Harm

moo cow for a pet

august 10, 2011

I think I'd like a moo cow for a pet,
No cats or barking dogs would ever do,
A heifer would be wonderful, I bet!
I'd wake up every morning to the joyful sound of "moo!"

dream of the leaping rabbit

December 27, 2010

Painter Chris Stover and his wife live in California and volunteer with the Sonoma County Humane Society for house rabbits. Their goal is to get rabbits adopted into good homes and to educate people that rabbits are wonderful pets who should live indoors.
This painting shows one of their bunnies Boudica dreaming about wild rabbits. Boudica was a fierce, biting bunny who had been abused, but lived with them happily for many years.

poem by MHM

November 15, 2009

I heard the cow meow
It wanted to be a cat
I heard the lamb bow wow
It wanted to be dog
I heard the chicken tweet
It wanted life and freedom
But the slaughter came anyway
And now a slice of silence with sauce
A BIG mistake on that plate!

Mostly known for my work with cows.
Just go Vegan!
You know - no animal products.
Climate change will calm down.
I can do moderation and harmony.
You can do love.
Love our planet - yourself - your children’s future.
Love the animals and just say no to cruelty.
Say no to starvation
– we can feed 2 billion people
with the food that’s fed to factory farm animals
Love our planet and it’ll love you back!
Before we get to the tipping point –
You know - the point of no return...
Go for it ~ Be Vegan ~ And be Cool

this is why I got a vegan cake for my birthday celebration...

special words

“If we want to truly lead a life of "Love thy nieghbor," our neighbors should include our animal friends, especially since they harm us in no way. They only beautify our lives; they are loving, and they make our lives more lively, colorful and interesting. We should preserve them, watch them, love them and enjoy their presence. God has made it clear; He says, "I made all the animals to befriend you and help you." - Supreme Master Ching Hai
