Today, I’m excited to announce the release of my next fiction book, FIGHT OR FLIGHT, which is the 4th title in my thriller series. Many of you enjoy reading this blog about cat and dog behavior and care, and I wanted to include thriller readers in the fun.
THRILLERS WITH BITE! FURRY SUSPENSE &
I love weaving real dog and cat training, behavior and health information into the story lines. The books feature a main character, September, who works as an animal behaviorist. She has PTSD issues and her canine partner Shadow helps with this. The German Shepherd service dog character has his own chapters told from his “dog” viewpoint and – well, Shadow was based on my own dog Magic. So in a way, writing these stories allows me to remain connected to my sweet Magical-Dawg.
In past stories, all set in the fictional North Texas town of Heartland, I’ve focused on a number of issues near and dear to my heart. The first story is permanently free in all Ebooks, and LOST AND FOUND involved off-label medication for autism and service dogs for children. The second book, HIDE AND SEEK, explores hog hunting and a mysterious illness affecting both wildlife and humans, and included information about feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (a heart ailment).
The third story, SHOW AND TELL, shines a light on the shameful business of dog fighting, and how law enforcement uses canine DNA to catch the bad guys. It also allowed me to create other-abled “kid heroes” to defeat the evil. Yes, it’s made up fun, so I get to steer my stories so good always wins out.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT: THE PLOT & NEW CHARACTERS
This newest story FIGHT OR FLIGHT introduces new characters including a Rottweiler police-dog-in-training and her trainer, Lia Corazon. Here’s the description from my editor.
A dog trainer with special abilities. A dead body with hidden secrets. Solving the case will take more than animal instincts.
Lia Corazon pours her heart and soul into her kennel. So when a storm destroys her business, she’d do anything to get back to training dogs… even if it means making a deal with the strict grandparents who want to put an end to her lifelong search for the father she’s never known.
Determined to prove she deserves a second chance, she starts training a scrappy young Rottweiler named Karma. After the would-be police pup sniffs out a dead body, Lia teams up with a detective who could hold the missing link to her Hawaiian heritage and the mysterious bond she shares with her four-legged friends. But her special connection will be pushed to its limits when the twisted trail of clues leads to a horrific black market operation.
With innocent lives on the line, can Lia solve the mystery of her legacy before the deadly crime syndicate claims another victim?
