About the author:
When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.
What inspired you to write your book?
I love animals and Dr Doolittle is my favorite movie. All four of The Corny Books have the heroine speaking to animals. They usually get her into some kind of trouble though.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Have you told Steve about the jury summons? You need to tell him how to take care of me in case you get sequestered. Pete grabbed his tail with his tiny paws and chewed on the tip, a sure sign he was agitated.
“How do you know I didn’t tell him already?” I knew what his answer would be, because his answer was always the same.
I have excellent hearing, Pete chattered.
“No. You’re a little spying devil.”
That’s the only way I know what’s going on around here. He pouted.
“I promise to tell Steve. You have nothing to worry about. I’ll have to go through the jury selection process. If I did get selected for a case the chances of me being sequestered are slim. You’ll be fine.”
You better be right. He scurried down the hall.
Besides being an aggressive, tough, Seattle narcotics cop, Steve was my boyfriend. He looked sexy as hell in his faded jeans, Mariners T-shirt, sneakers and 9mm gun hooked to his belt. He’d grabbed a leather jacket out of the bedroom closet and flung the heavy material over his shoulder.
“Hey Steve, can you check on Pete real quick? I might’ve hurt the little guy’s feelings.”
“Sure. What am I looking for? Will he be blowing his nose or wiping his eyes with a tissue?” Steve asked.
