Origins: Have Paws—Will Travel

Authors often face questions about how much of themselves are in their novels. In Bloody Paws, everything.

Jim Briggs’ mobile canine care unit is Have Paws—Will Travel. Like the character reveals, I used to sit and watch endless episodes of the old western, Have Gun—Will Travel will my grandfather. An apt name for a mobile veterinarian.

Fun fact: StarTrek Creator Gene Roddenberry wrote 24 of the show’s 225 episodes.
