Dianne Burch

Dianne Burch is an author, speaker, storyteller and passionate animal advocate.

For 20 years, she was active as a business owner, creative event planner and involved community service board member. In 2010, she made a life-altering decision to combine her professional skills and her passion for rescue animals. With the help of partner and co-author, Michael Fredrick, World of PawsAbilities was created as a marketing and publishing firm intent on helping to raise the next generation of responsible pet ambassadors through education, entertainment and community involvement.


Michael Fredrick

Michael Fredrick is a dog lover and cartoon enthusiast. His off beat sense of humor and love for classic animation was instrumental in the character development. He is a self described bookworm and wants to share his love of reading to encourage kids of all ages to explore whatever their hearts desire.

His roster of clients include Oxford University Press, Penguin, Scholastic, Macmillan, Hachette, Miles Kelley, Carlton and Templar. Born in Texas, Gerald currently resides in Colorado where it’s far to beautiful to stay indoors as much as he does.


Tim Palin

Tim Palin is dedicated to providing engaging and beautiful design. I’ve worn many, many hats in the creative services and publishing industries. I bring to you a very adaptable design sensibility as well as a commitment to making things beautiful. Whether it’s a book publishing project, magazine layout, identity piece or marketing design, I do whatever it takes to achieve a perfect finished product. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a finicky perfectionist…and your projects benefit from that.
