    Hi Dianne,
    We have been reading your book in class and the kids love it. It has captured their hearts with all of the emotion. We are wondering why you wrote this book and if you have lived in some of these places.
    we are planning on reading the other books you have written.
    Thank you so much

      Hi Alyssa and Hannah, thanks for your message and sorry for the slow reply!
      I’m so glad that you (and the rest of the class) are enjoying my dog story 🙂 I haven’t lived in those areas, but I did visit them twice to research my story. I love both history and animal stories and so the book was probably inspired by that … The Dog with Seven Names was also part of the Creative component of my PhD research into anthropomorphism. Does anyone know what that means? Can you say it? It’s my favourite word.
      The second Creative work for the PhD was The Shark Caller, which is also anthropomorphic, but featuring very different animal voices 😉
      Thanks again for being in touch. Dianne
