GeneralDachshunds! Actually, I love all dogs, but I seem to have a special affinity for wiener dogs, probably because I have a long torso and short legs, just like they do. Since I became involved in New Mexico Dachshund Rescue, I've managed to acquire six of the little sausage hounds. If you're interested in NMDR, check it out:

About me:It took me a long time to begin writing books, because life got in the way, although writing was the only thing I ever wanted to do. Curse life. My first book, ONE BRIGHT MORNING, was published by HarperMonogram in 1995. What's more, it won the HOLT Medallion for Best First Novel. It was a good start, but my career has been ... well ... rocky is the best word for it, I guess. Publishing's a brutal business, but I've got more persistence than brains so the publishing gods haven't killed me yet, although they seem to be trying awfully darned hard. Curse them, too.
In September of 1996 my herd of wild dachshunds and I moved from Pasadena, CA, to Roswell, NM, where my mother's family settled fifty years before the aliens crashed. We love it here. No smog, no crowds, no money -- but I had no money in California, too, and you don't need so much of it here.I will, however, be moving back to California in the future, 'cause I couldn't get my kids to move here!
Anyway, I've had 42 books published under various names by various publishers (you'd think I'd be rich and famous after having all these books published. Personally, I'd settle for rich. Unfortunately, I'm neither). They're all historicals (I try to avoid reality as much as possible) and they're either romances or historical cozy mysteries.
