Welcome! I’m an award-winning author mostly known for the Doodlebugged Mysteries, but I’ve also had my work appear in such places as Realms of Fantasy, Bruce Coville’s Shapeshifter, The Arizona Republic, and American Forests. You can find a list of my books here, read my blog here, or learn more about me here.
Meet Doodle, the obedience-impaired labradoodle whose nose always gets him in trouble.
Doodle’s “career-change” lands him with a new family and unexpected danger in this laugh-out-loud mystery perfect for dog lovers of all ages.
MIS-CHIPPED, the sixth Doodlebugged mystery is out!
One dog, two microchips, two claims . . .

Until the dog shows an unusual talent for the sport and someone else claims to be the dog’s owner. Thrown into a world of heartless criminals and hard choices, Molly and her friend set out to find the truth. But it takes Doodle’s nose, Molly’s persistence, and a big dose of courage to set things right.
A family friendly mystery perfect for dog lovers of all ages. Get it here.
Running with the Dogs
Last February, I was delighted to discover that three of my works won Maxwell Medallions from the Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA). The winners were “Balance Due,” a touching short story about second chances, Doodlewhacked, an ongoing memoir of raising the obedience-impaired Shadow, available on this website, and, also available here, “Fly Away Home,” my farewell tribute to Shadow (the dog in the photo above.) I didn’t manage to go to the DWAA banquet this year, but I blogged about my super-cool trip in 2018, “Running with the Dogs in NYC.”
And that, as the saying goes, is all the news that’s fit to print.
Hope to see you here again soon!
