Bruno signs for Book #5

BREAKING NEWS!
Fans of the Damien Dickens Mysteries will be relieved to learn that Bruno Caravaggio has agreed to appear in Book 5 of the series.
 
While not a title character, Bruno has been a stalwart supporting player, coming to the aid of Damien and Millie in each of their first four adventures.
 
Terms of the contract have not been disclosed; however, it is rumored that Bruno insisted his role in Book 5 must be more than simply a cameo appearance. “I have much more to offer than being a bit player,” he explained. “I refuse to be shunted into a minor role.”
 
When asked what he thought about Damien and Millie’s move to the West Coast, Bruno replied, “Suits me. I always wanted to learn how to surf.”
 
Stay tuned for more breaking news about the next installment in the Damien Dickens Mysteries.

More than a decade ago, I wrote – and ASM Press published – a textbook, Food Safety: Old Habits, New Perspectives. To my great delight, that book is still in active use today.

Last week, I had an epiphany.

Why not write a companion book on pet food safety issues?

Version 2

As ‘Momsy’ to an Australian Cobberdog, I know first-hand the angst involved in deciding what to feed our furry family members. Kibble or canned? Cooked or raw? Do-it-yourself or rely on a commercial source?

I have already started jotting down some ideas. If there is anything you would like to see included in this book, please drop a comment or email me.

As for the mystery side of my personality, fear not. I shan’t abandon Damien and Millie. There is a fifth Damien Dickens Mystery in my future.

Now, if I can just figure out what to make for dinner…
