Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  3. Great post! We talk for our dogs, too, lol. And for the chasing critters in their sleep–the thing that always *amazed* me when we had litters of puppies is that they would do that while still tiny–long before they were able to do anything like that in real life!

  8. Oh, Marji, I do the same thing–talk for my animals. When my youngest daughter was in grade school she invited a new friend over and gave me firm instructions to not talk for the dog while her friend was there. :)FUN post!!

  9. Oh, Keli, I do the same thing and my friends never let me live it down! When the Lab puppy came along they wanted to hear him talk!Loree, my sis-in-law rescues racing greyhounds, too. Said they are some of the sweetest, calmest dogs she ever owned. (I would have said fastest, but then what do I know?)

  10. Marji, I think it's cool that you talk for your dogs. I talk for our two cats. Each of our fellows has a distinctive "voice" and personality, which comes out in his "speech." =)
