A Disturbance in the Force

Just as Stanley started to fall asleep, he jumped out of bed and raced over to Joe’s.
“Bad dream?”
“No. I sense something – a presence I haven’t felt since…” Out of nowhere, a pillow hit Stanley so hard in the head that he hit the floor. “TURD!” he cried.
“That wasn’t me,” screamed Turd. “RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! THE MONSTER FROM THE BLACK LAGOON IS BACK!”
Suddenly, books, pillows, pens, paper, were flying everywhere. Joe and Stanley were ducking and trying desperately to get to the stairs and escape.

Kicked out of School

“Kicked out! Kicked out!” cried Piper who was as bad as Hermoine Granger when it came to missing school.
“It’s only for a week,” said Pickles feeling quite happy about not having to go.
“Look at the bright side,” chimed in Stanley. “We’ve got a whole week to find a solution to Turd.”
Piper stopped storming around her room. “What can we do? We’ve tried reasoning with him. That didn’t work. Uncle Joe tried talking to him. Mom has threatened to find a way to make him die a second time. What’s left?”

Where I’ve Been…

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t been posting lately. I took a nasty spill out of my van and injured myself good.  I’m just now getting some decent use out of my right hand without too much pain. Ah, the joys of having wonky balance.  🙂

On the bright side, the draft of “Revenge of the Turd” is finished and sitting for a spell.  I’m letting this one sit for a month so I can approach it with fresh eyes.  I’m hoping to publish it before Halloween.

In the meantime, I’m writing a historical fiction book based on my great, great, great grandfather Henri Wehrung who served both in the French military and in the Civil War.  It’s not your typical historical fiction. I’m writing it from the point of view of a squirrel. Yup, you read that right. It’ll be finished by the end of August, but probably won’t be published until some time in November.

Off to create a new blog for the “Squirrel.” Make it a great day everyone!
