A local actor is hoping to spread the word about karma, or rather Karma - with a capital "k," a pit bull who has helped change his life.

Nicolas Priore is the author of Karma, The Plight of the Friendly Pit.

The story is based on Priore's family pets.  Says Priore, "It's basically a parable about prejudice...Anyone who has ever been misunderstood...can relate to this character."

Prior was on WIBX First News with Keeler to talk about the book:

The book is available on MagCloud: Karma, The Plight of the Friendly Pit.  Priore says he will donate proceeds from the book to Tia Maria Torres' Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Villalobos has gained international attention as the focus of the Animal Planet show "Pit Bulls and Parolees."
