Award-winning author Kathleen Donnelly has been a handler for Sherlock Hounds Detection Canines—a Colorado based narcotics K-9 company—since 2005.

Along with working dogs, Kathleen loves horses and owns two horses and a bossy, yet adorable pony.

She has a B.A. in Journalism from Colorado State University and formerly wrote for The Berthoud Weekly Surveyor where she won a Colorado Press Award. Kathleen lives in Colorado with her husband and all their four-legged friends.
