More About Dogs

Me?  Mention dogs? 

Of course!

I'm here at Killer Hobbies because my mysteries always contain dogs--not exactly my hobby, but part of my life and family.   If you read this blog much, or otherwise know anything about me, you already know that.

Even some of my romances contain canines--like my paranormal romances for Harlequin Nocturne about Alpha Force, a covert military unit of shapeshifters.

I also write for Harlequin Romantic Suspense, and I've received some interest in an idea that will involve--you got it--dogs!

Because that would involve different aspects of dogs than I'm used to, I've started doing some fun research.  I don't want to get into any details now, not until the new miniseries becomes more of a certainty, but I'm talking to a lot of different people and learning all I can, partly so my stories will make sense, and partly because, if I take poetic license, I'll know some of the reality so I can still ensure that what I say sounds plausible.

Meantime--well, I'm currently working on my next Nocturne, although I had to set it aside for a few days to finish edits on my upcoming Superstition Mystery UNLUCKY CHARMS, to be published in October.  But before it's published my next Romantic Suspense novel COVERT ALLIANCE, which does not contain dogs, will be published--in August.

And in a couple of weeks I head to San Diego for the Romance Writers of America National Conference.

So... writing.  Dogs.  It's all fun!

It's great that you can write about dogs in different genres. Have fun at National. I'm thinking of rejoining RWA.

RWA is still a fun organization--and you don't live too far from where the Los Angeles chapter meets.
