What about Daisy? creator, Maryam Faresh, is a children's book author, and pet & people psychic . Maryam has inspired thousands through psychic communication and with Daisy's story and message that "everyone deserves to be loved and accepted." Maryam's inspiration for What about Daisy? came from parenting multiple rescue animals, many of which were special needs. But Daisy, her deafblind rescue dog was her ultimate teacher." Maryam has worked with Demi Moore, Cesar Millan, Jackson Galaxy of “My Cat From Hell,” and actress Carolyn Hennesy.
Maryam, along with husband Bruce Meade, rescued Daisy when she was three months old. Daisy was born both blind & deaf. With no previous experience and with very few resources available on the subject, Maryam had only the power of her intuition to guide them. They worked for months trying to gain Daisy’s trust and love. After one particularly discouraging and exhausting session with Daisy, Maryam had a very vivid dream. The next morning she woke up and quickly began to write it down. Two hours later her first children's book, What about Daisy? was born.
It was at that moment Maryam realized that Daisy had opened up her heart in a most unexpected way. Maryam had been so caught up in Daisy's struggle that she had almost missed the gift right in front of her: the gift of Daisy, just as she was. Daisy hadn't just changed their lives, she had changed their destiny.
Since writing the first What about Daisy? book, Maryam has written a second children's book, Road to Rescue Ranch, a prequel to What about Daisy?; and, Happiness is...Daisy, and her friend Savannah also deafblind, share some of their favorite moments, reminding us of the simple, everyday experiences that can make any day special. All of these books were created to support organizations for both children and animals with special needs.
Cesar Millan said this about Daisy, "I really really love Daisy as a teacher, that's a dog that teaches you about the nose of a dog." Cesar shared Daisy's story in his live tour and has written the foreword to Maryam's next memoir titled, "Daisy".
