Meet the Author
Ann Whitaker lives in the heart of Texas with her journalist husband and two dogs-Jolie Blon, a spoiled Cajun poodle, and Mardi Gras, a retired pet therapy dog.
She's been writing in one form or another all her life. A reformed high school and college English teacher, she's published poetry, non-fiction, and short fiction in newspapers, literary journals, and magazines. Her fictional characters are often larger than life and sometimes find themselves in absurd situations.
Songwriter David Allan Coe says the perfect country and western song has to have certain elements: Mama, trains, trucks, prison, and gettin' drunk. Ann's stories almost always have a dog.
She's currently working on another novel and a collection of slice-of-life essays about everything from a 350-pound roofer to a love affair with a kitchen sink. She calls it "chicken-fried Nora Ephron."
When not writing, Ann plays mah jongg, reads, sings, and plays the guitar.

Julie is a dog trainer who has to tame two rambunctious poodles in order to save her client's marriage. Meanwhile, her love life is a mess. Should she choose the eccentric rich kid who works at Walmart or the cross-dressing cop? Maybe she should just take a vow of chastity and give up. Right about the time she's planning to do just that, she meets sexy pilot, Nick, a friend of her eccentric client. Nick knows how to make Julie sit up and beg, but would he make a good mate for life? This is a fun, lighthearted romance with a chick lit attitude. Julie's smart and good-natured, Nick's a heartthrob - and the two giant poodles just about steal the story. A fun romantic read, especially for dog lovers.
