Why do you write about dogs?
I can’t help it! I grew up on a farm and we had two dogs that were part of the family. You can tell a dog anything and no one will rat you out about something. I’m pretty sure that every dog in the area knew my secrets, but luckily for me, they could not pass those stories on to their humans!
It all started with the first book I self-published: The Puppy Baby Book. My dog Shasta Ann was the inspiration for the puppy book. She passed away many years ago, but I raised her for 17-1/2 years. I knew her like a book. She was my constant companion, and to this day, I still grieve and miss her.
When I wrote the first book in the Alcott Family Adventures series, Hot Chocolate, I created a dog (Louie) for my main character, Lila Mae Alcott, the middle-aged, eccentric, wealthy, middle sister.
Louie always shadowed Lila Mae, or Amelia, the housekeeper/cook. He always seemed to have his opinion forefront on his face. Dogs are so easy to work with in a story. If you truly know a dog, then you can imagine what is going on in their brains.
Next up was Buffy, the Jackson’s family dog in Prophecy of Thol. Then Pup, Chatter, and Scooby, the fierce diwal dogs in the dimensional world of Thol that D’laine Jackson was pulled into. I needed to show how love can transform a dog. Human contact based on love can be a life-changer as I showed in the Thol series.
Then, there’s my dystopian novel The Last Dog. I let my mind flutter out there with that concept—sort of thinking about Planet of the Apes, but with dogs.
What would happen if people could no longer have children and turned to dogs as their children?
Then, what would happen if a disaster struck and all the dogs died… except one puppy? You can bet that the government would turn all evil and want that dog.
I really have to get off my butt and write the second book, Texmexzona (TMZ for short) so people can follow what happens to Abby, the last dog.
