I'm very happy to announce that I've completed my latest novel, The Dog Thief, which I hope to release this year. Canine rehabilitator Madeline "Mad Girl" Whitney understands dogs, but is a disaster with people. When opinionated, arrogant, and just plain weird Maddie stumbles upon a murder victim, she's thrust into the limelight of her small town. She makes a wild claim, hoping to help her struggling business, but it has the effect of drawing too much attention and she's forced to work with the sheriff, her ex-girlfriend's hostile twin brother.

Last year, I lost two of my dogs. Bosco and Betty had long, happy, active lives. Now I have a cheerful mutt, Lola Wiggles. The Dog Thief celebrates the special bond between humans and our companions.
