Inhaltsangabe: It's 1989. George Woods is eleven years old and lives in the shadow of his older cousin Teddie, the best player - and only girl - on their sandlot baseball team. George discovers that there's more tolife than baseball when he befriends Bibi, an artistic recluse who keeps a dozen Siberian huskies and wolf-dog on a hidden farmstead down the road. Over the course of a summer and autumn, the dog woman teaches George to carve wood and to stand up for himself. When things go terribly wrong for Bibi, George confronts bullies, a corporation, and local government to defend her honor.

From the Author: In 1990, I was a writer for the local paper in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. My editor assigned me the story of a mysterious "dog woman" who lived in our village. I spent three months immersed in investigation. After my article was published, I could never get the dog woman out of my head. Her story is a classic tragedy and also a classic American drama about the underdog and the powers that prevail.

It took me 20 years, but I finally wrote a book about her, as seen through the eyes of the fictional George Woods. George is a boy who sees the good in the eccentric dog-hoarding recluse - just as I still see the good in her real-life counterpart.

I wrote the story first as a screenplay. I think Dog Woman would make a great movie. To turn the screenplay into a novel, I locked myself in our house trailer on a lake - my "writing shack" - and stole my own dialogue, adding narration and description. It was fun to do, but I found that I preferred dialogue to narration and description. Therefore, readers will find that the book sails along rather swiftly on the strength of the conversation. This is my favorite kind of book. I think we all like to eavesdrop.

This was my first work of fiction. I found it great fun to weave in elements from my own life and from the lives of people I've known. That's why readers will find references to baseball, chickens, Cajun traditions, Romanian food, faith and love of nature.

I still think of myself as more of a nonfiction writer. In any fiction I write, there will always be a strong element of nonfiction. For me, truth is stranger - and more interesting - than fiction.
