Finding a cover model is a challenge. While my romance writing friends combed the web for pretty people, I looked for beautiful dachshunds! I have a line on another painting by Mick Williams, similar to the cover on Amazing Gracie. And my cover designer is warming up her Photoshop to put all the elements together. I am getting excited now that the cover is coming along, and I am getting Miss Daisy into critiques. I am mostly healthy now, and as fall sets in, I want to wrap up in my office cocoon to write. I plan to have Miss Daisy out mid November.

Hiding Miss Daisy is not a story about dachshunds like A Tale of Two Doxies, but Marco is a therapy dog who lives at Sunnydale Medical Care Center in Skeeterville. His master was a pastor who visited Sunnydale with Marco, then the pastor became a resident and brought Marco with him. Then he passed away.  The staff adopted him and kept him on as a therapy dog. He plays a role in Irene’s sleuthing.

I want you to see the finalists in this beauty pageant.


Travie from Claire

This is Travie. Don’t you love his eyes!



This is Maxx. He always looks like he wants to give you a kiss.


Lori Blk tan Fritz

This is Fritz. He has such a such a soulful gaze.


Papa Bear

This is Papa Bear. He’s so furry I want to grab those furry cheeks like an auntie.



This is Frankie. He was my dear friend’s dog. He was a therapy dog who crossed rainbow bridge.

He inspired  me to create Marco in the story.  I wish we had a hi-res picture of him.




Yule looks so noble. He would walk the halls of Sunnydale with his head held high doing his job, I’m sure.
