About the author

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire; you will what you imagine; and at last you create what you will. – George Bernard Shaw

K. A. Libby (k.a. libby) grew up in Freeport, Maine, and her fiction focuses on mid-coast Maine, its people and its environment. Previously Ms. Libby wrote professionally for an integrated circuit components company. Her first paid writing position was as a Freeport High School teenage reporter for the Portland Press Herald. Later, as a Virginia National Bank employee, she wrote the bank’s marketing releases for the Virginia Pilot, as well as personal interest articles for the bank’s newspaper.

Beware the Sleeping Dog is her first novel. It hibernated as a tiny germ of an idea for years before she actually started writing the manuscript. Much like George Bernard Shaw’s quote above she had an idea. She imagined its growing into a novel. She studied her favorite authors and learned how they developed the goals, obstacles and stakes for their characters. She wrote her novel and re-wrote it. And re-wrote it. And re-wrote it one more time. And now it’s ready for you to read. She hopes you will enjoy the experience of reading it as much as she has enjoyed the adventure of writing it.

K. A. Libby lives in Leather Corner Post, Pennsylvania, with her husband and two cats. She works in the advising office of a local community college.
