Margaret Mizushima is the author of the Timber Creek K-9 Mysteries. Check out her bio here.
I’ve been married to a veterinarian for almost forty years, and I’ve become accustomed to sharing my life with animals, usually dogs and cats but sometimes fish and birds. I grew up on a cattle ranch, but my family typically only had one dog at a time during my childhood, not the pack that my husband seems to need.
Currently we have four dogs, which is a handful, but we love them all. We live with Hannah and Bertie, both German shorthaired pointers; Tess, a black and white border collie; and Lily, an elderly yellow Labrador retriever. My experiences as a vet’s wife and dog lover inspired me to write my Timber Creek K-9 Mystery series, which includes five books, the latest one titled Tracking Game. Book six, Hanging Falls, is set to release on Sep. 8, 2020.
The Timber Creek K-9 Mysteries feature Deputy Mattie Cobb, her German shepherd partner Robo, and veterinarian Cole Walker, who all live in a fictional town in the Colorado high country that, over the past years since I began writing these stories, has become the most dangerous spot in the state. I invite you to join Mattie, Robo, and Cole in their outdoor, mountain adventures as they solve crimes that impact their community.
In the meantime, take good care during this pandemic, and please tell me about the furry friends who enhance your life.
