Meet the Author


"One Dog Too Many is an entertaining book to read on a lazy day. The author, Lia Farrell, has crafted a tidy little mystery peppered with likeable characters, interesting back stories, and lots of canine lore."

- New York Journal of Books


"I treasure the way George Guidall has brought some of my favorite stories—including my own—to full brilliance."

- Stephen King


Excerpt from A Thousand Letters Home:

Dec. 1, 1942
Fort Custer, Michigan
I just wait 'til the time we can be together again and this war is over. There will never be anyone but you, kiddo, so just keep waiting and loving me and I'll be back. Write soon and often. You just don't how much good those eight page letter do a fellow.
With all the love in the world, Bud
