"Take a clever dog, an autistic boy, and toss in greed, corruption, and out-of control scientific experimentation and you have the makings of LOST AND FOUND, a fun story filled with twists, turns, and a large dose of intrigue." -D. P. Lyle, Award-winning author of the Dub Walker Thriller Series
"Pet behavior expert Amy Shojai's debut thriller LOST AND FOUND combines the medical tension of Robin Cook thrillers with the emotional heart of THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN." -Dr. Marty Becker, Best-selling author and resident veterinarian on Good Morning America and The Dr. Oz Show
From the Author
The result was LOST AND FOUND, and the story of a young autistic child lost in a blizzard with his service dog struck a chord with readers and reviewers, and prompted demands for "what happens next?" HIDE AND SEEK happens next, and takes place only a few weeks after the first story ends.September's tragic history hinted at in the first book comes to the forefront, and answering readers' requests, Macy-Cat has his own story line that figures much more prominently in the book. After all, I'm an equal opportunity pet lover!
Now the 3rd book in the series SHOW AND TELL brings the story full circle.
This past year my home in North Texas was inundated with horrific floods. Weirdly enough, I'd already included thunderstorms, tornadoes and floods in the plot, well before weather ran amok in real life. The tragedy of dogfights sadly is also areal life issue in my part of the world. And I'm also constantly inspired by the heroics of both pets and people who overcome incredible obstacles. So this time in SHOW AND TELL, September not only has help from Shadow and other pets, the victimized children from the first book LOST AND FOUND have their own "super-secret" plans for outwitting the villain.
I hope you enjoy all of these books as much as I do writing them. This most recent book also includes the names of winners of my hugely popular NAME THAT DOG and NAME THAT CAT contest, as I've done with the previous two stories. Be sure to read the FACT OR FICTION section at the end of SHOW AND TELL to learn more about these wonderful pets--and find out how to get the bonus chapter (what happens to Shadow when he goes missing?) that includes more winning pet names.
And yes, it is true you can train cats and understand dog behavior. For more on that, refer to one of my nonfiction books on the subject, like ComPETability: Solving Behavior Problems in Your Multi-Dog Household and ComPETability: Solving Behavior Problems in Your Multi-Cat Household.
