NEW ORLEANS, LA — What makes a fantasy novel work? Is it how seamlessly the introduction of shape shifters can believably interact within an otherwise normal reality?
My Life as a Dog is the story of a Yorkshire terrier told in first person narrative through the eyes of his human counterpart Drake Martin. Shape-shifting his way through crime solving, the protagonist’s fluffy alter ego finds his way into the arms of a little girl, Kady. A bond is made. Drake watches her grow through the faithful eyes of a loving pet.
After Kady is grown and leaves the family home, the Yorkie runs away to morph back into his crime-solving lifestyle. A chance reunion of the two some years later lends an intriguing twist where puppy love becomes something more.
