“I have nothing but the highest of praises to sing for this thought-provoking, tear-jerking tale of torture, death, hope and survival.” Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars “Anyone who’s had the privilege of sharing their lives with an animal companion will love Sandy’s story … most highly recommended.” Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars
In the depths of despair, she has no idea who, or where she is. Dying of thirst with her ribcage almost poking through her skin, she can barely put one paw in front of the other when she’s rescued from the street. When Sandy’s people parents take her to her beautiful new home on the island, she tries to focus on her future, and return the love and kindness showered upon her. Then she meets Lola, Obie and Chip, and the traumatic flashbacks begin. As her past slowly unravels, and her memory returns, Sandy must make a choice that will determine her life and her future. What will she decide? ‘The Island Dog Squad’, an animal action and adventure novella, told by Sandy the rescue dog. (The Island Dog Squad is a series of novellas inspired by the rescue dog Deb and Allan adopted this March. The real Sandy is a sensitive soul, not quite like her fictional namesake, and the other characters are loosely based on Sandy’s real-life mates.)
Following thirty odd years in the British Army, Deb and her husband Allan decided to become weather refugees and settle in Cyprus.
Throughout her life Deb has dabbled with writing. Her first book was ‘Reindeer Dreams’ – a quirky rhyming Christmas story for children featuring Barry the reindeer and his family. Her first grown-up books about aliens and unearthly spiders could be explained as off the wall. The Afterlife trilogy came next with a few ‘Jason the Penguin’ books in between.
The first book in the current series ‘Unlikely Soldiers’, is set in 1970s Britain, with others to follow through the decades.
Deb now spends her time writing, working part-time, avoiding housework and playing tour guide along with Allan. She tries to keep the pounds off by playing netball and long-distance walking.
