When HOTEL FOR DOGS was made into a popular movie, Scholastic republished it and asked me to write two sequels. NEWS FOR DOGS was the first of those. It was a challenge to write a sequel to a book I wrote in 1971 and place it in the 21st Century. In HOTEL, Andi was 10 and Bruce was 12. In NEWS, Andi is 11 and Bruce is 13. So, in real time, the story took place about 6 months after the first story ended, but I had to supply the children with access to today's technology, including computers and cell phones, without making that change too apparent.
In NEWS FOR DOGS, Andi and Bruce and their two best friends publish a newspaper with articles appropriate for dogs to enjoy when their owners read to them. All goes well, until they get inspired to post the paper on the Internet, and Bruce gets carried away with enhancing his photos using Photo Shop. When the dogs they have featured in their articles start disappearing and the owners begin to receive ransom notes, the children realize they have made those dogs targets for dognappers.
This, then ,becomes a wild adventure story, with valiant Aunt Alice starring in her roll as private investigator as she and the children go on a crusade to rescue the dognapped dogs and return them safely to their grieving owners.
I had so much fun writing this story! Personally I think it is better than HOTEL FOR DOGS. But why shouldn't it be? I had 35 years between the first book and the sequel in which to hone my skills as a writer.
Lois Duncan modeled the main character in HOTEL FOR DOGS after her childhood self. Like Andi, Lois knew from an early age that she wanted to be a writer and started submitting stories to magazines when she was ten. Today she is the author of 50 books, most of them for young people. She lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her husband, and can be found online at http://loisduncan.arquettes.com/.
