Announcing - A New Book!

I am pleased to announce that my most recent novel, WALKING THE DOG, was just released from Musa Publishing.

Jared feels like he's the only one who looks past Sophie's scars to see her for who she is. But can he be a true friend when she desperately needs one?

Jared is smitten when his teacher seats the new girl, Sophie, right next to him. Even with the scar running up the side of her face, Jared thinks she’s the most beautiful girl in the entire fifth grade. But why did she transfer here so late in the year? Rumors say something bad happened to her.

Jared and Sophie become friends while walking the guidance counselor’s new puppy, but when his parents object to this arrangement, Jared fabricates a series of elaborate lies to meet Sophie on the sly. But little brothers can be pests. First Petey lets the orange cat loose at the animal shelter where Jared and Sophie have been secretly walking the dogs. Then Petey turns up missing.

And Sophie's past finally catches up with her.
Walking the Dog is available as an ebook right now, for only $2.99. I hope you'll give it a try. Not only does it features kids working out very adult problems, but also therapy dogs, rambunctious dogs, black dogs, gold dogs, and pound dogs. And of course, there is also - the orange cat.
I hope you enjoy this story. It's one of my personal favorites.

Here are a couple of buy links, and it will be available almost everywhere soon:
