Puppy Power! by Deb Kastner


Deb Kastner here. After spending many years writing in my fictional town Serendipity, Texas (I believe it was 17 books altogether!) I just turned in a new proposal I’m super excited about and can’t wait to share with you.

You probably already know I’m a huge animal lover and they often appear in my books—everything from pigs, goats, llamas, cows and psycho roosters to kittens, puppies and horses. In my new series, which doesn’t yet have an official title, the focus is on dogs—lots and lots of dogs!






Welcome to Winslow’s Woodlands, a Christmas tree farm located in the mountains of fictional Whispering Pines, Colorado. Here, the six Winslow siblings work the farm and dog rescue. But the Winslow’s don’t just rescue these clever canines—they train them in all kinds of therapy work.
It’s been great fun for me to research all the many ways dogs contribute to the lives of the people they love—and I discovered far more than I can even use for my series, including avalanche dogs,
psychiatric assistance dogs, medical alert dogs, mobility assistance dogs
and social work assistance therapy dogs, who visit not only hospitals and nursing homes, but places where hurricanes or tornados have forced people into shelters.

Since I work at home, I have the blessing of having my own fur babies hang out with me every day. 
This is my “big dog” Sadie, who gives what I call “bully hugs” which always make me smile.
And this is our dear Gabriella, a little angel who has earned her nickname Gabby because she’s…yeah. And she'll tell you all about it.

And speaking of telling, I want to know all about your fur babies! I’ll be giving away a $5 Amazon card to one commenter!

My next Love Inspired, Her Forgotten Cowboy, will be out the middle of August.

  1. Deb, I love the pictures of your fur babies. They are so cute. 17 books in a series. That's amazing. I'm looking forward to the new series.
