Dog Eared is my latest book which will be released on Amazon in e-book and paperback versions very soon. It is aimed at children aged 9-12 but anyone who’s ever tried to train a mischievous dog might enjoy it.
I’m very excited to reveal the amazing cover which was designed by illustrator, Laura Coppolaro:
About Dog Eared:
Dogs can’t read. Right?
When Sophie’s grandfather moves in to a retirement home, Sophie is delighted to take over responsibility for his super obedient dog, Lector. Her grandfather also gives her two journals for Lector and tells her how important they are. But listening isn’t one of Sophie’s strong points.
Sophie’s dream-come-true turns into a nightmare when the usually well behaved Lector turns super-bad overnight. After midnight on his first night with Sophie, Lector gets himself into all kinds of trouble and leads Sophie into a run-in with the local bully. Dogs in the town have been going missing too. Could there be a dog snatcher on the loose?
Sophie desperately needs Lector to return to his former obedient self, especially when her dad and step-mum-to-be announce, to Sophie’s horror, that they are having a baby. Lector’s future with the family is in danger. If Sophie can’t retrain Lector before Sophie’s new half sibling is born, he’ll have to be rehomed.
Can Sophie discover the magical secret to training Lector, and keep him away from the dog snatcher, before it’s too late?
Why I wrote this book:
The inspiration to write this book came when our wonderful and mischievous dog, Fozzy, came into our lives. At six months old, and with a troubled past, we never thought we’d see the day when she was properly trained. So, as well as being the inspiration, Fozzy is also the reason why this book has been so long in the making!
More information on Dog Eared is coming soon.
