Susan is a canine behaviourist and a storyteller. She lives with her family and dogs, in particular, Rocky the Border collie and Stella, the blind dog. She is a canine behaviourist, as well, and spends her time writing and illustrating; training and counselling dogs and being bossed around by the family cat, Speed Bump Charlie.
Susan travelled around the world twice before she was seven years old. It seemed only fitting that the wonderful events she experienced and the places she visited on these journeys be recorded for history. Thus, her story telling skills began. Firstly, to Rupert Bear, her lifelong companion, and then to a host of imaginary friends and finally to her pet dog once the family finally set down roots in Australia.
Susan is passionate about children's literature and wants to inspire children to be better people and encourage them to follow their dreams. She runs workshops for children teaching them how to form the wonders of their imaginations into stories.
She is also passionate about building a meaningful relationship between a dog and its owner - one built on trust and respect. The gentle, positive based training she developed has successfully resulted in hundreds of dogs becoming valuable members of their homes and their communities.

This is another great little Astro story, with an excellent - and often entertaining - cast of characters. I loved it just as much as I've loved the others I've read from the series so far, and can't wait to read more! Unfortunately, I also had the same issue with it as I've had with the other books in the series: since the animals are supposed to be just like your average pets - though, admittedly, with a few extra talents - they should have the same physical capabilities, and not be able to do things that would require the use of thumbs without some sort of tool to compensate for their lack of opposable thumbs
