The dog gods found me pretty early on in my life and I’ve never been able to outrun them. My career as a canine behaviourist/dog walker/dog groomer spanned thirty-odd years – and they have been odd at times.
I’ve changed direction from all that excitement to put energy into my other two passions: sculpting animals from clay and writing, which I do from my home in Nelson.
I’ve been a writing fool ever since I was taught to hold a pen. I loved to entertain family and friends with my ‘movie’ length letters as I travelled around.
I’ve had a few articles and short stories published and a play performed by the lads at Nelson College, but for a long time I’ve wanted to sink my teeth into writing a novel and I’ve finally done it!
Two Dogs, One Bone is an anecdotal account in the life of a dog trainer/dog groomer/dog walker. It’s fiction. Ahem, let’s call it that, shall we? (To protect the innocent and not so innocent.)
It’s about time I made good all those hours I spent gaining my Diploma in Applied Writing in 2006 from Whitireia online school.
