Who is the mysterious ghosty haunting puppygirl Tillie? And why? George, the magical basset hound familiar is on the trail.
Tell us about this story. George, the magical basset hound returns and is on the trail of the mysterious ghosty haunting his Packmate, Tillie. During his investigation he discovers forgotten Peep history.
What living person do you most admire? This is going to sound sappy, but my brilliant husband. He not only holds a full time job, but he takes care of me, and the dogs, and visits his elderly mom every other week. He’s my miracle.
What is your most prized possession? The trophies my dogs have won over the years. They represent teamwork at high levels, trust, and training.
Who is your favorite fictional character of all time? Oh my goodness! Too many. They change with every new book or show. Maybe Bugs Bunny for sheer attitude.
What’s your idea of perfect happiness? Being in my garden, working, with my husband and dogs nearby. Usually not with the Freaky Beak, my youngest springer, sticking her Beak into everything, and trying to help.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I’d like to be better saving money. Dog competition=Money
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? Concentrating too hard on my disability. It’s a chronic pain issue I try to ignore.
Why do you write? I was at the coffee shop puttering with something about my dogs on the computer. An obviously magical basset hound (no one else could see him) stuck his nose in my face and insisted I write his story. He’d dictate it, I’d enter it, since he didn’t have fingers. So a series was born. Unfortunately, he’s overweight and lazy, so the short books take a long time.
Author Bio: I’ve worked in a hazardous waste lab, where under the sign for the Right To Know law, was added: if you can figure it out. I’ve been a metals tech, a bakery clerk, a professional gardener, and taught human anatomy and ran two university greenhouses. Along the way I picked up my Master’s Degree in Biology, specializing in the population genetics of an endangered plant. I’ve also been a top breeder, handler, and trainer of English springer spaniels under the prefix of Muddy Paws. We three in the equivalent of the National Club’s (ESSFTA) hall of fame. Every time I think I know dogs, another dog comes along and proves my beliefs are totally wrong. The truth is, the Muddy Paws Pack walk all over me.Author Links –
