In the Author's Words :: Children and adults in middle Tennessee were smitten by Chester, my working therapy dog. Since I was already writing novels and nonfiction, folks asked me to do a children's picture book about this loveable Chesapeake Bay Retriever.
That first book was a hit. Chester told the story from his point of view and I used real photographs. Now there are five 'Chester the Chesapeake' picture books featuring him and his canine brothers and kitty sister

Book Title :: Chester the Chesapeake: Summertime (Book Two)

So what's it about? ::      A bored dog?
 Not if Chester can help it!
 In this second book of the Chester the Chesapeake's series, Chester
asks his goofy brother Russell for help. Together they show the new dog the
joys of summer.
"Chester, the fun-loving Chesapeake, never ceases to amaze me with his
ability to teach the young at heart, as well as the old, about acceptance,
guidance, and love. Great book for all ages!"
Danielle Collins, Ed.D, Federal Programs Supervisor, DeKalb County School
System, TN

Let's look inside :: Can you believe it?
A little lost dog roamed our golf course!
He begged the men for food and water.

Of course, Mom brought him home.
"We'll name him Putt-Putt," she said.

Another brother?
Wow! Just in time for summer.

What's on the Horizon? :: Because these stories are inspired by true events 
and the antics of Chester and his brothers, I never know when the whim 
strikes to grab my camera and start working on the next book.

However, between Chester's work as a therapy dog and our book events and 
readings up and down the East Coast, we're one busy team!
