What's the story in Shepherd’s Crook?

Animal photographer Janet MacPhail knows that something is seriously amiss when she and her Aussie, Jay, learn that livestock have disappeared overnight from a herding trial. Then a man dies, and Janet unwittingly photographs the thieves in action, putting herself and those she loves in the killer’s crosshairs.

A little about moi (and why I write a series with an Aussie as lead dog)

I've been involved with Australian Shepherds for more than two decades as a breeder, rescuer, competitor, judge, and fan. In addition to the Animals in Focus mystery series featuring Aussie Jay and his friends, I have written seventeen award-winning nonfiction books about dogs, cats, and rescue, including The Owner's Guide to the Australian Shepherd, Rescue Matters!, and others.
