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.
ILL-SERVED, the seventh Doodlebugged mystery is out!
Service to die from . . .
Big changes come into Molly’s and Doodle’s lives when the boss gets married. Doodle loves their new home, except for the annoying kitten that seems to have come with it. But then a neighbor threatens the boss, and escalating acts of vandalism make it clear that someone is trying to force them out. Worse, Molly’s new friend collapses on the sidewalk after his service dog runs away. The dog is supposed to be a diabetic alert dog, but he doesn’t act like any service dog Doodle has ever known. With the boss away on his honeymoon, it’s up to Molly and Doodle to sniff out the truth and set things right.
A family friendly mystery perfect for dog lovers of all ages.

Running with the Dogs
In February 2019, 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 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!
