Meet Mavis Duke Hinton, author of The Dachshund Escapades

In her 21-year career as an English teacher, Mavis Duke Hinton now teaches English online to students across the USA and several foreign countries. She grew up in a military family and lived abroad in Europe during her childhood. She has also been an editor for Christian and secular organizations, including Liberty University, as well as a police officer.

Married for forty-one years with two married daughters and three grandchildren, she has written two Christian fiction novels in THE DACHSHUND ESCAPADES series, I AM SARGE and I AM DACHSHUND, both published by OakTara.

By Mavis Duke Hinton

Sometimes a dachshund’s “lowdown from the ground”
perspective is just what human beings need.

“I was only eight weeks old when I was adopted into my new human family who knew immediately I was a super dog. They proudly gave me the name Sarge—after my Papa Duke, who was a sergeant in the Army. Quite a fitting name for a good-looking dachshund too, I might add. I just know someday I’ll do great and mighty things, befitting a super dog.

“But in the meanwhile, I’ll just steal your heart and make you laugh out loud with the antics of this 'chow hound.' And maybe, if you come over, Papa and I—two food lovers—might just share a snack or two with you, too.”

Fall in love with Sarge, the quintessential dachshund,
and laugh along with his foibles and humorous escapades.

Looks like a fun book and I LOVE the cover! It makes me want to pick up the book and dive right in. (My daughter and I wrote a book from a dog's perspective and I'd really hoped for a great photo on the cover like yours but the publisher had other ideas.)
I look forward to meeting Sarge!
