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.

CLARION REVIEW - 4 STARS

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 awomenswrite.com.

I found myself giggling at the imagery many times throughout the story.

The book also leaves an opening for the second in the series, so those who enjoy this book will hopefully have more adventures to look forward to soon.

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.

From Lassie to Beethoven to that dog from Up, human/canine pairings are beloved in children's cinema. My children are still too young for full-length movies, but I imagine that once we enter that era, I will once again be treated to furry friends who, verbally or otherwise, manage to communicate with their masters, to everyone's amusement. If the creators of such movies are looking for inspiration, they need look no further than K-9 Cop - Case#1 The Dreck Report by Erna Mueller.

This book is the story of Spencer, a jerk of a cop who meets his end at the hands of two nefarious henchmen . Fortunately for Spencer, he is given a chance at redemption (both personal and eternal). The only catch: he will return to Earth in the body of his canine partner, Pepper. It is up to Spencer/Pepper and his teenaged (human) companion Justin to stop the crooks from unleashing (haha) a computer-hacking toy into the world.

As I said, this book would make a good kiddie action movie. The plot is tightly-woven and fast-paced, and the characters are both familiar and endearing. At times there seemed to be perhaps a bit too much going on, and some of the plot twists tested the limits of credibility, even for a genre that is by definition a bit incredible. That aside, it was a fun read, and would certainly be enjoyed by middle grade animal lovers and thrill seekers. The book also leaves an opening for the second in the series, so those who enjoy this book will hopefully have more adventures to look forward to soon.
