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 now too) are her Border Collies - they keep an eye on her artwork to make sure she keeps earning kibble, and every now and they they round it up and post it to her artwork
