Over on Chet’s FB page, on Saturday we invited questions. Theresa Treep asked: “What inspired you to write mystery novels from a dog’s perspective? Chet has a very unique “voice” that makes him an entertaining narrator. I’m sure it’s challenging, though.”

The answer: One day my wife said, “You should do something with dogs.” I’d had dog characters in previous books – Buster in Oblivion, Nigel in the middle-grade Echo Falls series, even Garth in The Fury of Rachel Monette, my very first book – but you never saw inside their heads. I knew right away what my wife meant, went to my office and wrote the first page of what became Dog On It, just to see if it worked. It seemed to. All fiction writing is challenging, in my experience, but just between you and me, there’s a lot of fun to be had in writing in Chet’s voice.
