Readers Favorite Review - 5 stars

"A New Leash on Life" will keep young readers spellbound and it makes on the edge of our seat reading! As a veteran reading specialist I will have this on my top list and will rant and rave as I  spread the word out there to schools as a great literature adoption.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly A MUST Read !!! June 13, 2012
By Sandy
Young readers will LOVE it! I loved it and everyone who just enjoys reading for pleasure - young or not, will totally enjoy this book. The characters just POP, the pace is fast but the images in your mind that Erna creates are so vivid. You'll find that you just can't wait for the next chapter. The setting is Seattle - you'll find yourself saying, "I know that place" or "yup, love that pizza". The bonus - there is something to be learned from the characters in this story about love, perseverence, forgiveness. Besides...there's are dogs in the story - I'd love it if there were more stories about Pepper and Justin and the whole crew.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very fun and fantasy-filled read! December 16, 2014
K-9 Cop had an excellent storyline. What if we could really hear the thoughts of our dogs? What would a K-9 Cop really say? The readers would be enticed with the storyline and the hero of the story Justin Andrews. We felt his pain when his father would not spend any time with him and when he was the only one injured in the car accident. We felt his triumphs when Spencer the K-9 Cop came into his life and put a positive spin on his outlook. Justin Andrews was able to regain his confidence that was evident when we found him, his father and his sister in the computer lab at St. Ignatius’ Private School, discussing his Internet prank of the Headmaster that was plastered all over the school’s computers and game board. A very fun and fantasy-filled read.

What I Did Not Like:

The author stated that Justin was in the front seat with his sister Vicky in the back and then he was stated to be in the back seat. Then when the accident occurred he was in the front seat again. The author did not give a prelude to what was about to happen to Detective Spencer Watley. It will leave the reader going back to understand what and why it happened. The author’s constant use of the UK English style of spelling words where the American English spelling would have sufficed. Reading this nook was oftentimes very tedious and not a great page turner as I had hoped it would be. Several times I had to put it down and step away from it.The author should make the story more believable by working on just how much Spencer behaved like a dog: being able to turn the door knob and leave a room, etc.

What I Did Like:

The author was able to bring to life the thoughts, actions and feelings of the animals in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super read for all ages December 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love the cover and the storyline, a dead cop has to come back as a dog to redeem himself. I thought this would be a winner. I wasn’t wrong. K-9 is a fun and easy read for young and old alike. Who doesn’t like a feel good story?

Justin is very bright and bored by school. His mother passed away and he misses her so much. His father doesn’t understand him. Even though his sister does, he is often left to his own devices. We can only guess at the quests he will create for himself and the trouble he will get into.

Justin attends St Ignatius High School and fights against the constraints placed on him. I hate the thought that his curiosity and fire for life could be crushed by the strict school rules that get him in trouble for his juvenile pranks.

Meanwhile, in Chinatown, Lieutenant Spencer Whatley and Pepper were taking down a robbery. All clues lead back to an old case, which Spencer is determined to solve for his dad, who was killed while working it. Spencer is focused and driven. He emulated his father and became like a Pit Bull with a bone. It does not go well for Spencer.

K-9 takes a fun and whimsical turn, and a smile began to spread across my face. I thought this was going to be a fun and light read that would have me chuckling as I joined the adventure to capture the Cyber Killers and I was so right.

Spencer is a “Copzilla” to children. He’s flippant, arrogant and saying he’s a jerk is putting it mildly.

I laughed out loud, when Justin and Spencer meet. Well done, Erna! I love it! I love the spunky kid that is Justin. I can picture the scene in my mind…but I’m not telling. You will need to read the K-9 Cop to find out. It is well worth the time.

Justin Andrews is in trouble with the principle – again. He’s a very smart kid that was placed two years ahead and excels in computer technology. Ever since his mom died, the family was struggling to reconnect. As their dad is driving him and his sister home, they are involved in a serious accident. Justin may never walk again without braces. Lieutenant Spencer Watley is having trouble of his own. He and his K9 partner, Pepper, were pursuing the Dreck brothers. Their backup had not arrived. Spencer was killed while Pepper was injured. The gatekeeper denied Spencer entry into heaven. He had to go back and redeem himself; it was called a Jerk Redemption Program. But, instead of returning as his former self, he returned in the body of his K9 partner. His assignment was Justin.

This is a fast paced story set in Seattle. The protagonist turns fourteen; I think this could be enjoyed by ages ten through fourteen. The characters were fun, even Spencer who was considered a jerk. His cranky attitude was shown through his thoughts; words; and actions. The author did a great job of gradually building the relationship between Spencer (as a dog) and Justin. There’s more to the story than one would think at the beginning. It is all weaved together very well. I rated K-9 Cop at 4 out of 5.

More About the Author

I was born in Austria and my family immigrated to the U.S. I loved living here as a child and considered the U.S. my home. My family returned to Austria and of course I had to tag along. I missed the friendly faces and the cultivation of the free spirit which America symbolizes. In Austria I completed my education but always wanted to return, so here I am.

I traveled the world and lived in many exciting cities such as Paris, Munich and London. I currently work as an accountant for a large pizza company in Seattle by day and passionately pursue a career as a writer in my spare time.

My new book, "K-9 Cop", is adapted from my multi-national award winning screenplay. The book has won several awards including first place in the 2009 National Good Read Competition sponsored by
