When I was a little girl, my mother wanted me to be an actress because I had naturally curly hair like Shirley Temple.  But back as far as I can remember, I wanted to be a writer and a dog trainer.  I didn’t think of those two things coming together, but years later, after I had become a dog trainer, I began to write about dogs.  And many articles, columns and books later, when I decided to write my first mystery, I gave a dog a co-starring role.

You may know some of my Rachel Alexander and Dash mysteries – Fall Guy, Without a Word, This Dog For Hire, The Hard Way.  And you may have read one or more of my dog books, Mother Knows Best, Second-Hand Dog, Dog Training in Ten Minutes, Dog Smart, an all graphic dog training ebook, or Do Border Collies Dream of Sheep?, written with Denise Wall, now available in print or as an ebook.  If so, I hope you liked them.  If not, I hope you’ll give them a try.  Either way, come back often.  I’ll do my very best to make it worth your while.
