Always, my first novel Ghostnapped published in 2009.
What motivated you to write this book?
My beautiful puppy Obi, he did so many crazy things as a puppy, but I’m sure he always had a reason for doing them. He loved to protect people so he was a natural super puppy and is now widely considered to be Obi the Wonder Dog by the people and students at Labs ‘n Life.

Adelaide South Australia
Are there any famous authors that inspire you?
Roald Dahl, was always my favourite author growing up.
What do you do for a living? What is your day job or is writing your day job?
I am the curriculum manager for Labs ‘n Life a not for profit organization that works with kids at risk to train Labradors as autism assistance dogs. Obi comes to work with me every day. He has made a huge difference in the lives of many young people, he really is a wonder dog!!
Did you draw on life experience to write this book? If so, can you share that experience in brief?
Just being around my beautiful dog Obi is a yellow Labrador and he has had such an impact on our lives I felt it needed to be in print. We now have a puppy Stitch who is learning from Obi, so there will be many more stories to come!
