2/12/2017: Ben & Baoji in the River Race Rescue, Case File 6, Bow Wow Detectives®, Story Preview Edition is available for Pre-Release on Amazon. I hope you like the new cover. I spent several hours illustrating this drawing in the river. I shot the pictures of the cover models and his parents, at my studio about five years ago. This is a great story of bravery and adventure!

2/6/2017: Bow Wow Detectives® book trailer for Saliva Smirk was posted over the weekend. The new, Story Preview Edition will be released on 2/14/17.

1/31/2017: Lisa Loucks Christenson's Bow Wow Detectives has a new logo. The dogs featured on the logo are two of Lisa's dogs, who, along with Lisa's Siberian Husky and German Shepherds were the sole inspiration for the entire series. You'll find all her dogs featured in the trading cards and in her books. Dale is the featured dog in the first book, New Year's Eve Octopus Bank Heist. 

Who Are the Bow Wow Detectives?
The Bow Wow Detectives® are a group of canines faced with a dilemma, a choice of right or wrong, mysteries, puzzles, and more. They are trained to bring order and justice, with a little help from their human companions. As mentioned, Lisa's dogs, Valentine (left) and Ruthie Buttons (right) on the new logo are real life sisters and are the main characters of the Bow Wow Detectives® series; along with Dani and Dale, Lisa's family's German Shepherds (real life sister and brother siblings, born 9/11); and the very first Bow Wow Detectives®, lead character, Shadow.  While writing the original first book, Shadow (18-years-old), was laid to rest, putting a hold on that book.  You can see Shadow on her own trading card below for her book, Until Death Do Us Part. This will be added as a prequel to the series, later.

Does Prayer Work for Authors?

Lisa believes all things are possible, and God's will always prevails. God is the author and finisher of all His works, and Lisa could never write a book series without God's blessing on it. Lisa said many prayers while writing the books, writing scenes and ideas out for new upcoming books, asking for His help and blessing. Help arrived, but not only the form of support from her family, friends, customers and guests who visited her galleries––with their own dogs they allowed her to photograph for possible inclusion in the series, the customers believed in this literary project and listened as she read from her unfinished (then) manuscripts, or scenes. Help arrived in mysterious ways too, for each dog Lisa photographed seemed to have their own story Lisa could see in their eyes; inspiring scenes and story ideas Lisa could ponder and think about. 

One thing is for sure: The Bow Wow Detectives® series would have been impossible to write without the help of a few very clever canines that surreptitiously entered her life; all while she was working on her Wolves of Whitewater Falls series, and thinking about her cat books (Camp Cats) she'd started years before but put aside. By the way, Lisa's cat book ideas and sketches, if you haven't guessed by now, are the Meow Meow Detectives™. 

The Bow Wow Detectives® written for Young Readers, Grade 3 on Up.

ALL of the photos that represent the Bow Wow Detectives® were personally shot by by Lisa Loucks Christenson. Her collection of images includes dogs she grew up with, companions who now have a permanent place to spend eternity in Lisa's Bow Wow Detectives® books. The ideas and story scenes for this series began in 2005, while Lisa's field dogs accompanied her on on her Lisa's Bald Eagle Documentary. When Valentine and Ruthie Buttons arrived, they inspired the roots of the series name and from then on, the stories that are now the Bow Wow Detectives®  and the Meow Meow Detectives™ that features Lisa's cat who she saved off the highway.
