Readers often ask me why I use dogs as the main characters in my books. Using dogs as the main characters in my stories allows me to present issues, challenges and life lessons that most children experience, while removing any gender/race/creed/religious stereotypes, therefore making the stories accessible to ALL children. My experience from doing many programs in schools throughout the country confirms that children do readily empathize with the characters and are able to easily identify and accept the underlying lesson/moral.
The Crowded Backyard was inspired by watching my dog, Dill, interact with the birds and squirrels in our backyard.
