Time To Get Writing!

Peggy King Anderson, one of the Northwest's most luminous luminaries in children's books, teaches a writing course which I'm taking. At our first meeting this week she read our work in class, including "Max! Relax!" She liked it! And for homework I have to come up with a first draft of the next Max book. Max is thrilled. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Nothing like getting the old pusheroo. This is fantastic, Dana. I know there's a bunch of Max's just waiting to get out. The door. Or onto the paper. To be housetrained. Ok, these are beyond tired.

    I'll look forward to seeing the Next Max too. P.O.O.P and all

  2. Well, a lot of him got out before he left this earth. So we got a new carpet. I've started thinking up characters to be in Agent Max's P.O.O.P. Patrol. One of them just might be a fussy, yet dangerous poodle named GoGo. Any objections?
