Introducing my second children’s book, “Charlotte and the Search Dogs!” It’s the second in my Shelter Dogs series, and joins its predecessor, "Astray and the Shelter Dogs." In "Charlotte and the Search Dogs," lovable Labrador Charlotte wants to earn the love of her shy new owner, a little girl named Maggie. She also wants to be a search dog. Only problem? She's scared of water. See her take on both challenges!

The Shelter Dogs series joins my 4 whodunits for adults, “Meeting Mayhem,” “Meeting Scandal,” “Meeting Darkness,” and “Meeting Murder” (yes, they’re a series, but you can read them in any order). For Kindle only, there’s my essay collection and a young adult novella.

I also write blog posts and maintain an active social media presence. Thanks for visiting, and whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy the read…
