The Book: Animal Personalities

In July 2015, agricultural science publishers 5M Books asked me if I would be interested in writing a book for them. Of course, I said yes! On the 25th May, 2017, I sent off my finished manuscript.


You can pre-order Animal Personality from 5M Publishers here. 

Or from Blackwell’s …

Or from Amazon …

Or from Waterstones!


The FluffySciences blog is now running intermittently while I recover from writing the book, Animal Personalities. This page answers some common questions:

How Far Along Are You?

I’m finished the writing process! Next we wait for the copy-editing and proofing to return from the publishers, a process that can take about eight months.

What’s this book then?

Animal Personalities is going to be a popular science book, I’m aiming for something like John Bradshaw’s ‘Cat Sense/Dog Sense’ series or Mary Roach’s very enjoyable books. You won’t be surprised however to learn that I’m not going to be skimping on the science part, just writing in an accessible style.

Okay, when can I read it?

Expect to see it in early 2018.

How can I find out more?

Until the book is in a more complete state, the best way to keep track of it is to follow the Book: Animal Personalities tag on this blog, or you can follow me on twitter @jilly_mackay

Shouldn’t you be writing?

NO! I’m free, freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
