I was asked by a reader over the weekend if it’s true that pets are considered property. Yes, it’s true! That is the basis of my novel, Saving Ferris. Cecilia Chandler faces murder charges for killing an intruder who was threatening her dog, Ferris. The law says Ferris is property but Cecilia is learning he’s family.
I won’t go into any further detail (Spoilers!) but E. B. Davis said it best– “I read it and loved it. There are some interesting legal issues that the author includes, which are pivotal to the plot.”
The book was inspired by classes I attended at the Writers’ Police Academy. So, again, yes, it’s true!
If you’re an animal lover, you’ll love the book. If you’re not, it’s still a great book. My goal was it to appeal to all readers. I wanted a reader to wonder what they would decide if they were on the jury.
ALSO, it’s a great time to start reading Saving Ferris. The trial occurs during December. Holiday buying habits are a critical part of the questioning and you’ll have to read it to find out why!
