It’s treat time today, with the nights drawing in what better thing to do than curl up in front of the fire with a good book ? We can provide the book part if you win our fab competition (fire not supplied !).

Susan Alison is a multi talented woman that you would hate if she wasn’t so nice.  She’s not only a painter of the most amazing and amusing animal pictures you’ve ever seen, she’s also an author, an award winning one at that being the recipient of the Katie Fforde Bursary Award  for 2011.

If you’re thinking that the style of painting looks familiar it could be because Susan is the painter of our fab ‘Canine Designs’ logo!

Her debut novel ‘White lies and custard creams’  spent a long time relaxing in the top 10 Amazon Kindle paid download chart and Jill Mansell (internationally best-selling author) said of the book: “Susan Alison has written a lovely, quirky romp packed with off-the-wall characters – original, intriguing and great fun!”

The follow up to White Lies,  ‘All his own hair’  has just been released and is making its way up the charts as we speak. It’s this book that I have  a signed copy of for one of you lucky readers to win!

All you have to do is pop along to this Amazon page and find the answer to this question ‘What is the name of Liz’s Border Collie?’ Then just email me at with the answer to the question plus your name to enter. The winner will be drawn from all correct entries on the 14th November. Good Luck!
