Boo! Authors – Leland Dirks

Who are you? Leland Dirks

Tell us about your Boo! story: I think I’ve actually got two in this anthology. Hitchhiker is set in a rural part of Colorado where there was a prison camp for Japanese Americans during World War II. The other is set in a museum that was once an Army fort on the Colorado frontier.

What else have your written? I’ve got over 20 other books out, fiction, photography, and humor. Almost everything I write has at least one dog in it! My most recent release was Mindful Dogs, co-authored by my Border Collie Angelo and my Black Lab/philosopher mix Maggie.

What frightens you the most?  People’s ability for cruelty.

Have you ever seen a ghost? Yes.

What are you reading at the moment? A lot of historical non-fiction, research for the next series of books I’m writing about Japanese Americans imprisoned during World War II.


Which book do you see as the most influential in your life? Illusions, by Richard Bach.

In the zombie apocalypse what would be your weapon of choice with which to defend yourself? My sense of humor. It would help us all band together and maybe make the zombies die laughing.
