About Lee Fullbright and Baby Rae

Baby Rae, a fourteen-year-old Australian cattle dog, was an incredibly sick puppy when I and my unruly day-tripping compatriots rescued her from a federale drop-kicking her across a Tecate, Mexico plaza. She still fears and distrusts men. And anything with wheels (no clue there). Her loves are me, children, grass, and me . . . and then more me. She is my compass and comfort, and was co-pilot for my novel, The Angry Woman Suite, curled up at my feet the entire time I wrote, rewrote, and then rewrote at least a billion times more. The Angry Woman Suite, about a 1920’s celebrity double murder and its effects on two subsequent generations, is the 2012 Discovery Award recipient for Literary Fiction; a Kirkus Critics’ Pick; also, a Geisel Award winner (San Diego Book Awards), and winner of a SDBA for “Best Mystery,” and a Readers’ Favorite 2013 International Book Award Gold Medalist, “Historical Mystery.” It is available at Amazon. The full Kirkus review is a link on this page … thanks for stopping by.

  5. I love the photo of you and baby Rae. As I was scrolling down, I noticed Kerry Dwyer’s comment. She’s another writer sister. I loved her book! And, yours, Lee is next on my list of reads, can’t wait. Give your sweet girl a rubbie from her new auntie Paw-wet (real nickname, from a little girl who could barely talk).

    I love the story of Baby Rae, I’ve got to tell you that it brought tears to eyes. I am a 68 year on man, who with my wife, rescued a 4 year old male Red heeler 4 years ago. Oakey is now 8, and my best friend and always by my side. I like to say that he rescued us, when we first saw him, he ran to my side, sat, and muzzled my arm for attention, it was mutual love from that point. He has inspired me to write a number of short, “Conversations with Oakley” about imaginary talks that we have.

    • Thanks so much for your comment, and for telling me about your sweet Oakley. I’ve always said the same thing about my Baby Rae (that you say about your Oakley): she rescued me. Cattle dogs are the most devoted of companions. I miss my Baby Rae so much (she recently passed, at 15 years old). The novel (a mystery) I’m currently working on has a cattle dog in it– a blue one–and not as a peripheral character, but as key to solving the murder at the story’s center. “Conversations with Oakley” sounds very, very interesting!!
