When I came to live with mom and dad in 2010, I already had my name, but she told me it's also the name of the heroine in her third book. She didn't name her heroine after me though. She told me that waz just ko intzie dents. (I don't know what ko intzie dents is, but it soundz yummy like bacon!)
I got my name because I was born about the same time as a big scary storm humanz called a hurrycane, but mom's heroine was named after someone she knew when she was a puppy. (Cuz I think that book has been in her head since she was a pup!)
Mom had two other mini longhairs before me, but they were both redheadz. I'm the bestest cuz I'm a brunette!
I'm smart, too. I know what "Wanna go write?" means and when she sayz that, I run to the door of her office and do little dancez (and I do mean "little" cuz I gotz very short legz!) until she lets me in.
Then I scoot under her desk and cuddle up in a special bed she put there for me that has bonez and chew toyz and stuff. (My mommy loves me.)

Sometimes she stops to ask me questions. I just look up at her with my big, brown eyes--cuz, you know, I don't speak human--but I think she's telepathic, cuz pretty soon, she starts clicking again. I LUV helping mom write!
Some days when mom is done making tappy sounds, I don't want to leave my special spot and she has to come get me out. What I'm really doing iz protesting because I think she really should write some more.
She's not very good at taking a hint.
Mom also has two kitteez we share the house with, but they aren't good writing buddies like me, cuz they prowl around her office and knock notes off her desk and lay on her punchy thing. Theyz bad writing kitteez. Mom and Dad call them Serenity and Sugar, but I just call them...
|Kittee 1 (aka Sugar)|
|Kittee 2 (aka Serenity)|
When mom is done writing we all curl up on the couch with dad to watch TV or read. Then they are good kitteez because they are warm and soft and like to cuddle with me. They think I'm a kittee, too. They're sillee.
