From the author of THE GUARDIAN HERD and RIDERS OF THE REALM series comes a whimsical tale about friendship, lemonade parties (where everyone wears yellow, even the pets), and adorable animals The Pet Washer, published in 2012, is the author's indie novel. It's spring break for the princesses of the seven kingdoms. As the royal families flock to their second castles on the island of Windym, the townsfolk struggle to keep up with their outrageous demands. Cianna works overtime at The Royal Pet Palace and Day Spa. She is the pet washer. Here, animals are cleaned, massaged, bedazzled, and dyed to match the outfits of their masters. Cianna is popular with the pets because she invents special shampoos, flea treatments, pet foods, and toothpastes to keep them as healthy as they are clean. Polly is the princess. She owns the finest dresses, the fastest horses, the largest castle, and befriends the prettiest royals in the seven kingdoms.
