Escape to the wonderful world of Labrador Nell through her conversations with owner Sara. In between special times with the family, Nell faces kidnappings, haunted hotels, shy flamingos and singing corgis as well as meeting handsome German Shepherd Charlie, the love of her life. Nell lives in a cottage near the sea in beautiful Devon, England with Sara and Kev and four other dogs. Elderly Patterdale Mutley, a retired entrepreneur owning chains such as Pizza Mutt and Walbarks. Feisty little Maltese cross Poppy, a talented chef who carries a sword and is famous for her scones. Dave, a gentle giant black Lab who loves surfing, singing and sausages and his twin sister Harriet, a delicate little chocolate lab who is always there to pick up the pieces. But what about The Cat? Is Charlie really a spy? How come Nell is always right? Why is Pomeranian Gladys sleeping in Nell’s handbag? Come in and find out. You won’t want to leave.

Me: I’ve always talked to my animals. I used to make up stories all the time.

Nell: You wrote your first play when you were 7.

Me: Words are my life.

Nell: You lived in Africa for 6 years broadcasting for BBC World Service and teaching drama to teenagers.

Me: I also worked as a subtitler and editor in Berlin and I speak fluent German.

Nell: You have an M.A. in English Language and Literature and you’re also a professional voiceover artist.

Me: But my dream has always been to write.

Nell: It’s why we moved down to Devon.

Me: Yes, I am living the dream.

Nell: I may just be a Labrador, but I feel I played a part in all this.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
