I write romantic suspense and warm, family relationship type novels, often with a touch of humor. Many of my books have featured animals as key players--dogs, cats, llamas, cockatiels, horses...even our son's pet albino corn snake, Sssssid, who appeared in my first Superromance back in 1999.

Animals have been a big part of my life since I was a child. How about you? I hope you'll become a "blog follower" here (see the right-hand column for a place to click) and will come back often. So...let's talk about our pets!

Starters!


For starters, I just had to post a photo of Elmo, our pound puppy. We figure he was on his best behavior the day we met. He'd been taken by the animal shelter to visit residents at a care center, and he was so quiet and sweet! After the going through the lengthy adoption procedure at the shelter, we brought him home...and discovered he was an incessant barker, destructive, and figured any place out of sight in the house was a perfect place to...well...

It took a year, but he is now the sweetest dog. He's much quieter. He'll sit on my husband's lap all evening and watch the Chicago Cubs baseball games, And he yodels to us every day! Arooo---oooo---oooo, looking us straight in the eye. We sure wonder what he's saying!

Welcome!

This is the inaugural post for this blog, and I'm so excited about adding it to my website! I'd love to hear from you about your furry, finned and feathered buddies!
