The human-to-animal connection is a topic that never ceases to fascinate me, and one that I explore in all my novels. In connecting with animals, my characters find strength and courage, and feel less alone as they face their problems. Just because animals don’t speak our language doesn’t make them stupid, and it’s our job to translate.

          In the Saddle Creek series, I go one step further. Alberta Simms, nicknamed Bird, hears what animals say very clearly, and transmits thoughts telepathically.
