Author has written 8 stories for Oliver & Company.
I am writing stories solely for Oliver & Company, with a bit of a Rita focus.
My stories in reading order:
Beginnings: The Runaway Hound (Part 1), and The Rise of Dodger (Part 2)- The backstories of both Rita and Dodger, and of the gang as a whole.
Unwanted and with no future, an encounter with a cocky young mutt is set to turn ten-week-old Rita's life upside down. An exciting and dangerous world awaits her on the streets of New York City, but sooner or later she must face her past and decide where she belongs- and even her very survival can't be taken for granted.
Rita has settled happily into her life with Dodger, Einstein and Fagin, but with the challenges of adolescence and some new members of the family to contend with, 'settled' may be short-lived. As a face from his past leaves him losing his way, Dodger must confront everything he's buried within himself if he is to step up into his new role as leader of the gang.
A Night Out- It's late, and while Rita just wants to settle down for the night, Dodger has other ideas. Just a short one-shot from Rita's perspective.
On Streets of Gold- IN PROGRESS- In a harsh winter, Dodger and Rita's lifelong friendship is changing, but while Dodger continues to struggle with his past, there will be some bumps in the road. Elsewhere, there's a new member of the Foxworth family... and she brings with her a dangerous threat from one of the city's most notorious dog gangs.
The Next Generation-Five puppies are born to Dodger and Rita. The kids must find their place in the world, be it living on the streets like their parents, or finding a much sought-after pet home. It will not be an easy journey for all.
New Starts- carrying on a year after the end of The Next Generation, the gang face big changes; from lifestyle adjustments, new faces, tragic loss and new life. It's going to be a roller coaster ride, but can Dodger bring everyone safely through the turmoil?
