About the Book

What is it?’ Jack repeated and covering his hand with the sleeve of his jacket he pushed the brambles aside, then he heard a tiny, pitiful squeaky noise. What was it? Katie sat frozen to the spot, she was scared of dogs, and they could run faster than she could. She closed her eyes and willed the dog to go away, but the dog just sat and looked at her. Liam lay gasping and wheezing. His heart was thudding and his fi rst thought was, I need to fi nd my puffer, I can’t breathe. He struggled to his knees, and tried to suck in deep gulps of air, but it wasn’t working. She sat up rubbed her arm and peered out from her shelter and gasped in horror. Her boat was fl oating; it didn’t appear to be tied to anything.The tide had come in and she was a long way from the shore, she could just see the jetty platform, but the steps to it were completely underwater. She started crying; she was scared, she was going to die.

About the Author

Pam Tunbridge Was born and brought up in Southampton, Hampshire and after leaving school with ‘A’ levels (none in English) she started work in the Post Office Telephone Department. She hated being cooped up in an office so then spent a few years travelling to and from Europe, finding work in grape picking, bars and restaurants and other local jobs. Back in England she joined the Police Force, but found it too restrictive for females so quit and moved to London where she got her first temporary, then full time job in the shipping and transport world. This led her to Felixstowe and she has remained in Suffolk for the past 26 years. It was at this time that her love dogs came to the fore and she had her first own, rescue dog, a 9 week old GSD, she named Sheba. Pam was then living alone on the Shotley Peninsula and Sheba was her constant companion and defender. After marrying and having a child, she changed track completely and went into the childcare business, helping to bring up lots of children, many of which are still surrogate offspring. She eventually became a swimming instructor, which she still is today. Before the death of Sheba at the grand old age of 13, Pam took on the care of a friend’s dog, a 4 – year – old Blue Merle collie called Taz, the inspiration for this book. Taz had given Sheba a new lease of life and became Pam’s and daughter Fiona’s loving and loyal companion. The day after Taz died of cancer at only 8 years old, a friend asked Pam is she could look after his GSD for a few days, while he went away. This led to a dog minding career, which she still does today, helped by her own 2 Springadors, Travis and Tayas. Her long suffering husband Tony never knows how many dogs are going to greet him at the door when he comes home. Pam is now a Gran to 18 months old James and she still loves to surround herself with dogs and children. In her spare time she writes and is currently working on the next two books for the Taz Trilogy.
