D.L. Keur
D. L. Keur was publishing during the last couple decades of the twentieth century and self publishing since the year 2013, Dawn’s chosen to publish independently, enjoying the control and freedom that it gives her over her work. Being an independent author, she writes all sorts of books, both short stories and novels, but also some non fiction as well.

Typically, she writes her fiction under various pen names, such as C. J. “Country” James, E. J. Ruek, as well as Aeros, to publish her “space fiction”. As she releases her “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries”, she has decided to write as herself, mainly since many of the dogs included in these crime and search and rescue dog novels have been personal to her life.

Being an author that delights in writing stories that she herself would very much want to read, this is the first series she’s written under her real name. For decades, she’s cloaked her identity under pen names. Convinced by this other author that has become a close friend and writing confidante, she decided to unveil her new identity and allow for readers to connect with some of her fiction work.

Writing is Dawn’s passion. Even though, among other things, she is an artist and musician, writing novels is what she loses herself in The Zone, immersed for hours, and even days, into the worlds that birth themselves into her brain to emerge out of her fingertips.

Dawn was conservatory trained throughout her youth on piano and flute, but retired from playing the flute professionally after she played with some notable orchestras both small and large and performed on some famous stages in Europe and in the US as a soloist. Later, after years of just teaching the instrument, she has taken the stage to play with her husband, and (on select occasions) to play classically as a soloist.

Being a student of the fantastic Professor Richard Hahn, she has written a practical guide for flutists, titled “Dawn’s Flute Notes, Practical Advice for Flute Players from Practice Room to Stage”, and like the title suggests, it is a realistic glimpse at the world of flute playing with technical help tips, advice, and tricks.

“Death Scent” is the first novel in the “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries” series and was released in 2021. Her first mistake was dialing 911.

Drones were supposed to make Jessie and her search and rescue dogs’ lives so much easier. But instead, they went and made everything so much more complicated. Her equipment was confiscated, and her very freedom threatened, it made Jessica Anderson land right in the crosshairs of a vicious killer and law enforcement when her drones find a body on the Long Peak slopes.

Evidence points to there being other victims, however, it is Jessie and these search dogs that law enforcement call on to find their remains. What nobody’s suspected, however, is that this killer is waiting and watching, anticipating and ready.

A novel about a woman and her beloved dogs, a woman that, having fled a career in law enforcement, finds she’s the target of, both, a killer and the sheriff.

Dawn takes you away into a world that readers knew absolutely nothing about. Milo the Wonder Mutt is really some dog. These are real feeling characters, and each one of these dogs, you can’t help but love them all. Jessica was a character that readers really connected with.

“Stray Trouble” is the second novel in the “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries” series and was released in 2021. Jessie must decide between predator or prey.

Called out for a night search for a couple of missing teens, Jessie and her dogs have to again team with Bitterroot County Sheriff Landon Reid on this dangerous case that involves felonious assault, multiple missing persons, and, ultimately, murder.

Reid takes a bullet when following this lead from Jessie’s snooping drones, his second-in-command authorizes a manhunt in order to run the fugitives to ground. Despite such a risk, and against her better judgment, she sets her dogs to tracking these criminals, just to find that she and the deputies with her are in rather deadly danger from these silent killers.

Every time readers believed they’d had it all figured out, they were dead wrong. This is a roller coaster ride of a novel that brought readers chuckles and then terror on the turnaround while Jessie and her dogs go searching for the missing.

“Grim Track” is the third novel in the “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries” series and was released in 2022. Dead or alive? Just her dogs know for sure.

When this Alzheimer’s patient disappears, nobody thinks that it’s more than just a daughter’s careless mistake, except for Jessica. When members of this patient’s family start vanishing, too, foul play becomes a certainty.

The Bitterroot County Sheriff’s Office and the entire search and rescue team kick it up into high gear with Sheriff Reid’s disappearance as well as some of the final surviving family members.

The story about one woman and her beloved pack of search dogs that will stop at nothing in order to save the lives of a stranger and a friend.

“Dire Traces” is the fourth novel in the “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries” series and was released in 2022. Her dogs continue finding them, however more continue disappearing.

One lost teen in Western Montana, four strayed hikers in Eastern Oregon, and then more kids getting lost in Bitterroot County tests the mettle of the newly formed multi-county SAR group and stretches the endurance of Jessica Anderson and her dogs right to the breaking point.

“Dead Falls” is the fifth novel in the “Jessica Anderson K-9 Mysteries” series and was released in 2022. The dead and the living. Her dogs continue finding both.

Abduction, rape, and multiple victims dead from unknown causes confound the Bitterroot County Sheriff’s Office up until Jessie’s dogs uncover a link to a much larger case. Jessie and her pack are tracking and on task, however what they are tracking could make Jessie the prime target for a bit of revenge.
