A former teacher, Linda Thomas retired after thirty-three years in education. She began her career in a small country school as a sixth-grade teacher in Southern Indiana and finished in a neighboring community as a middle school language arts teacher. Always a champion for humane animal care and treatment, Linda was instrumental in establishing a local humane society in her community. Her love of animals inspired her to begin writing a series of books about her pets when she retired. This is the second book of The Cats of Dogwood Lane series.
