About Paris & John

We’re Paris Permenter and John Bigley, a husband-wife team of professional writers with over 20 years of experience. Our specialties include dogs and cats as well as Caribbean, romantic, and Texas travel.

We’ve authored over 30 books for Random House, Adams Media, Globe Pequot, Avalon, Open Road and other publishers as well as nearly 3,000 magazine articles for publications ranging from Reader’s Digest to Bridal Guide to Corporate Meetings and Incentives.

Specialties: Our work falls into two categories: pets (specifically cats and dogs) and travel. Our pet writing features dogs and cats (we’re pet parents of both) with special emphasis on saving money on pet care and adoption. Our travel writing focuses pet travel (Paris co-hosts the weekly Dog Travel Experts radio show) and business and romantic travel. Our geographic specialties are Texas and the Caribbean.

Web Publishing: We publish four niche websites. For pet lovers, we publish the award-winning DogTipper.com and CatTipper.com. Both pet sites feature news, product reviews, giveaways, and more. We have worked with numerous pet brands on special promotions including Pedigree, Sam’s Club, FURminator, and others. For travelers, we publish Lovetripper.com and TexasTripper.com. Lovetripper was launched in 2000 and today contains over 10,000 pages devoted to romantic travel and destination weddings worldwide. TexasTripper, launched in 2006, features travel in the Lone Star State.

Custom Work: Along with our work for traditional publishers, we’ve also done a great deal of writing for custom publishers, authoring numerous in-cabin books for Carnival Cruise Lines as well as articles for in-room magazines for Sandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts, and many cruise lines.
