Ellen O'Connell lives in Douglas County, Colorado, with a motley crew of Rottweilers and Rottweiler mixes. She was active in Rottweiler rescue work for almost ten years, first on her own, then on the Board of Directors of Rottie Aid (www.rottieaid.org). At the present time, her rescue work is limited to transporting dogs for Rottie Aid, but she expects there will be other foster dogs in her future. Before becoming so heavily involved with dogs and rescue work, Ellen raised, trained, and showed National Champion Morgan horses for over twenty years as Serendipity Morgans. She still keeps a Morgan mare, Serendipity B Wichin, although she now concentrates on rally, carting, and drafting competition with her dogs. She is currently working on "Rottweiler Railroad," a second novel in her Rottweiler mystery series. Her website is www.oconnellauthor.com.
