Talking puppies? You bet! When my friend, Kay Walters, suggested making a video with our dogs talking trash about us, I was tickled. “Can you do it,” I asked? Dumb question–that woman and her son can make any kind of magic possible.
The next day she sent me a bunch of questions she wanted me to answer and requested a photo of my white bundle of mischief, Charli.
Very soon after, with a clear English accent that I love (I’m a Canadian and to this day believe I don’t have an accent LOL), she sent me this Talking Puppies video, and I was thrilled. Not only was I crazy over the pups talking, but I was floored at what can be done in today’s media universe.
I’ll add here… I’m glad I don’t have a pet snake or iguana speaking for me. But hold on… she says they will be making more movies in the future and using all kinds of pets.
Can’t wait, Katy.
Makayla hears the cries of children in trouble.
People don’t understand, and it’s complicated for Special Agent Makayla to explain. In her mind, she doesn’t have special powers. It’s just fallout from the days when she was blind… before the operation that restored her sight. Back then, she’d learned to use her other senses, rely on her instincts, and listen intensely. Except her uncanny ability is beyond reason.
Because of her gift, she works with the Special Victims Unit and takes on all the cases of vanishing kids where the usual processes haven’t worked. Sickened by many of her assignments, she finds joy when she sees the kids free and healing. Her biggest stress… they just keep on disappearing.
Dean Andrews desperately needs help. His nine-year-old niece has gone missing and the only person he’s told that can save her is a kook who mysteriously hears the cries of terrified children. How can he put his trust in this wild-haired woman with striking eyes and a heart bigger than her tiny body?
Yet, he has no other choice. His sister begs him to find her little girl… and he promises. Now he must deliver. Time is running out and everywhere he’s turned leads to yet another dead end.
Working as a team, they hunt the dark web, become involved in porn webcam sites, and do whatever is necessary to find his niece before she’s lost forever.

Her reviews are numerous and incredibly positive:
“Love Mimi Barbour, love her books. When you can read a book that within just a few words, you are brought right into the book. You feel, taste, see everything going on. Great story lines. Fantastic characters, fantastic plots, story lines like real life both honest folk and of crooks. Humor that will have you giggling then full on belly laugh. You may even shed a tear or two. All in all, Mimi never disappoints.” ~ Reviewed by Shirleen Miller
