Susan Alison paints pictures and writes stories for a living, and her cafetiere is always hot.
Dogs tend to enter into the pictures, and the prose, quite a lot, Susan living under the paw as she does.
Monty and Rosie and Jeff-Dog are her Border Collies - they keep an eye on her artwork to make sure she keeps earning kibble, and every now and then they round it up and post it to her artwork blog.
There are more romantic comedies on the way, including the sequel to 'White Lies and Custard Creams', and the third book in the fantasy series: 'Hounds Abroad', but in the meantime a book of illustrated short stories and a couple of books of illustrated doggerel exist for your reading entertainment.
