Lighthearted Press has been publishing books for dog and cat lovers since 1997, specializing in uplifting and heartfelt titles for those who are grieving a cherished animal companion.


chrisAfter many years of speaking with people who were struggling with their feelings of loss, publisher and author Chris Davis found herself on an unexpected journey that brought her face-to-face with a different kind of grief—that of hidden sorrow and repressed rage from childhood abuse. This led to the writing of Breathing Fire, her first book to reach beyond the genre of animal lovers to anyone who has walked through life under the spell of unworthiness.


Lighthearted Press was re-imagined, and now offers books and gifts that connect us to that magical place where all things are possible.


Miracles really do happen—just ask Chris.
