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!

Yippeee!! Grandpuppy alert!!

I've got a picture!! We won't get to see the new grandpuppy for another week or so, but hearing about Abby's intelligence and great personality (of course, no one is biased!) has me eagerly awaiting her first visit. She is just eight weeks old, and has not had one accident in her first seven days of being a Big Girl away from the litter.

In comparison, our two-year-old Border Collie is still not dependable (sigh) even with a careful routine of kenneling and taking him outside! So, when he's in the house, he has to be with me in my office with the door closed, on a leash rather than running loose, or in his kennel. If anyone has any suggstions, I'm all ears!


  1. Oh my gosh, she's beautiful!! What a sweet baby!

    Good luck with the border collie. We found the crate training worked well for us, so I'm clueless about suggestions.

  2. Elmo is also an incessant barker and loves to chew up things. OTOH, he is the world's best cuddler...so we love him anyway. **smile**

  3. I am really impressed by this on-line journal! extraordinarily clear clarification of problems is given and it's receptive each living soul. I actually have perused your post, really you've got given this extraordinary informative knowledge regarding it. Situs Judi Bola Online Situs Judi Online Situs Judi Indonesia
