The companionship of a beloved dog can bring a special joy, and the pain of parting can cause immense grief. A beautiful and moving poem, I Cannot Lie By Your Fire was written after the death of the author's own bulldog, and sensitively provides comfort and understanding, helping to bring reassurance and peace following the death of an animal friend. The message of hope and consolation within the words are there to remind all who are grieving of the happy memories that will live on after the pain of bereavement has passed.

Nick Bland

Nick Bland was born on a farm in the Australian Yarra Valley in 1973. The son of an artist and a primary school teacher, he spent his early childhood climbing haystacks and making mischief in his father's studio. When he moved to “the bush” at age 6, he discovered a wonderful new world and his creativity bloomed. Nick always told family and friends he was going to be a cartoonist and a writer. It wasn't until 1996, when he stumbled into a bookshop job, that he finally found the medium that would bring those two loves together. Untrained, he spent the next couple of years reading every picture book that hit the shelves and began honing his style as a storyteller and illustrator. He illustrated several readers before sending A Monster Wrote Me a Letter to Scholastic Australia in 2001. Since then, Nick illustrated I Lost My Kisses and created The Very Cranky Bear. He lives in tropical Darwin, where he works as a guardian for 120 aboriginal boys who board nearby. He loves both of his jobs and hopes to combine them in the near future.
