Colleen Dougherty


I'm a mom first of two boys living in Arizona but have always been a determined writer and was excited to find Smashwords as I surfed one day.

The idea for Ellie Adventure came when my son ran out of books to read with his father and I told him I would come up with a series for him. My character is a 6 year old girl who finally gets her birthday wish and gets, not one, but two puppies! The challenges and craziness of owning new puppies brought laughter from my boys as I read my story to them at the dinner table each night. Wanting to capture more experiences like this with them, I decided to make the book into a series and introduced Ellie's father who works at the local television channel as a travel reporter. The fun begins when Ellie discovers the puppies aren't the only surprise! She will be traveling with her parents, a tutor (whatever that means!) and her brand spankin' new puppies!

I hope your family will get as much enjoyment out of Ellie Adventure as I have with mine.

I am currently writing the second book in the series, "Ellie Adventure: Grand Canyon Puppies, due Fall 2015. The first stop on her father's journey as a travel reporter, we'll join Ellie, her family and the puppies as they explore "Arizonia" and all it's wonders, including the Grand Canyon! Learn about the Grand Canyon and laugh along with us as Ellie quickly discovers that raising puppies involves more than just kisses and doggy treats!
