Expert Biography

Author and animal welfare campaigner Vanessa Holburn was part of the #LucysLaw campaign that successfully changed the law and brought in a ban on pet shop puppies. Her book 'How To Be An Activist' was informed by this campaign and is an essential guide to anyone wishing to make a change. Readers will learn how to organise and manage their own campaigns.

In 'How to Pick A Puppy', Vanessa answers all the questions a puppy buyer or adopter may have, helping them to get the right dog at the right time from the right source.

Vanessa's first book 'The Amritsar Massacre' is an accessible account of an atrocity that occurred in British India in 1919. It discusses the need for an official apology and explains why such a debate is still relevant today.
