Hi Judy,
I learned a great deal about pit bulls from research and having the benefit of connecting with a pit bull advocate and an animal behaviorist who both helped me avoid perpetuating stereotypes about the breed type. As for Shelties, I've always loved the breed and have known several. As for writing well about family dysfunction, that's a harder question, with no easy answer. Every story I write comes from my imagination. Having said that, as a writer, I am also a keen observer of human nature. What goes into my head, comes out as a reconstituted experience, entirely fictional. The old adage is to write what you know; well, my philosophy is to write what sounds plausible, is compelling, i.e. draws the reader in, and creates a genuine emotional response from that reader. I don't know if this answers your question, but I do thank you for posing it. Yours is probably the best question I've gotten.(less)

Anything Is Possible by Elizabeth Strout

This author never fails to amaze me. Her characters, especially in this latest book, virtually telescope the narrative from one character to another, stories within stories, and yet she never loses track of the main thrust of the tale.
