Debbi Mavity’s Story “Canine Confusion” Included In Chicken Soup for the Soul: Laughter Is The Best Medicine

   Local West Union author Debbi Mavity’s story “Canine Confusion” is included in new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Laughter Is The Best Medicine.

   This is Chicken Soup for the Soul’s first-ever collection of humorous stories.

   Debbi Mavity retired from the Federal Government and now resides in the beautiful state of West Virginia. She is an active member of Doddridge County Lions Club.  Her first published story is in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Life Lessons from the Dog. Dogs and humor usually show up in her stories.

   Editor-in-chief and publisher Amy Newmark says, “I must have sounded like a crazy person cackling away in my office while I was selecting and then editing these stories. Even on the third pass through them I was laughing.” She continues, “If laughter is the best medicine, then this book is your prescription. Turn off the news and spend a few days not following current events. Instead, return to the basics – humanity’s ability to laugh at itself.”

   Everyone’s heard of a juice cleanse, a technology cleanse, a social media cleanse. Well, Chicken Soup for the Soul recommends that you do a “news cleanse” for a few days. “Hide under the covers and read these stories instead. Or read a chapter a day, or one story a day for 101 days. Whatever works for you,” says Newmark. “All I can promise is that these pages contain the antidote to whatever is troubling you. They will definitely put you in a good mood.”
