I want a dog named Shiloh


I love your book Shiloh! I want to get a dog and name it Shiloh. I watched the movie and read the book, but the book is better than the movie. Is Shiloh still alive? When will you write another book and what will it be about? Maybe someday I will write a book like yours.

The real dog who inspired the Shiloh books was adopted by friends of ours in West Virginia.  It was a female, and they named her Clover.  She died in 2000, and the vet estimated she was about eleven years old when she died.  So we know that she had a very happy life after we found her, though we’ll never know what all she went through before she was adopted.  There are four books in the Shiloh quartet, so I hope you get a chance to read them all.
