They left me with the Treat Lady

Coming Soon in print and ebook

My humans went away and now I’m living with the Treat Lady. Every day, I sit by the window, watching and waiting for them to come back.

Even though I miss my humans, I like the Treat Lady! She gives me lots of Profutto. Fendi said if I look at her with puppy-dog eyes, she will give me bacon, too—and Fendi is right!

The Treat Lady takes me for lots of walks, and we see fluffy little playthings. She calls them rabbits. They are everywhere!

Now I can climb the wooden tower humans call “stairs,” and I am teaching the Treat Lady how to play tug of war with my squeaky toy.

I know my humans will come back soon. Until they do, I will eat Profutto and bacon—and chase rabbits!

Princess TessMess

My move to Italy slowed down my writing a little. Settling into a new routine took a while. Finally I’m there. As many of you know, writing isn’t something you can force yourself to do. It has to flow. As I re-read my book I realize I’ve rambled a little to much, it needs to be trimmed to 10,000 words or less, I’m currently over 11,000. Short stories have to be just that, short!
I’ve also changed the name. Originally it was “Queen Tess – a Short Shaggy Dog Story”, but after chatting to my daughter (Tess’s Human), I’ve decided the book will be called “Princess TessMess”.
This is a much better title. Tess is a bit of a mess and “Princess TessMess” is perfect for a children’s book.
Stay tuned, my work is progressing!
Writing will never make me rich, but it does make me happy!
