Mr. Herlock Amadan is in PARIS for a ROMANTIC celebration with his wife. Twenty years of MARRIAGE. She has been the best wife—raising the kids, keeping the house, and keeping her husband. His shirts and pants were always pressed with a crease that even the dry cleaner envied. Breakfast was hot and on the table every morning before she kissed her man and sent him off to work on Capitol Hill. Now, the kids are grown and Mrs. Amadan has some gray strands in her neat hairdo. CELLULITE and belly fat are CREEPING up on the happy couple. But Mr. Amadan doesn't care about the aging changes his wife is EXPERIENCING. So, for their twentieth ANNIVERSARY, he books a lovely trip to Paris. His wife is ECSTATIC. She tells everyone about her wonderful DEVOTED husband. Mr. Amadan is today's talk on the Hill. What a wonderful husband he is— is what they are all saying. He has even GARNERED a COVETED time slot on the news. He sweeps his twenty-year bride off her feet and onto a plane for a romantic twentieth HONEYMOON. He wines and dines her like a queen. On the third evening, he has a surprise for his lovely wife. She is off to take a shower to ready herself for whatever he has planned. He kisses her cheek, telling her he will return soon. He has to add the final touch to their CELEBRATION. Twenty minutes later he leaves the suite, greets the DOORMAN on the way. But he is so happy, he turns back to the doorman and announces that it is his anniversary. He is off to get his wife the biggest diamond he can find. The one he finds is CAPTIVATING—it has all four Cs—color, cut, clarity, and carats. The woman is a KNOCKOUT: gleaming red hair and girlish freckles sprinkled across the bridge of her nose, perky breasts, toned thighs, and she has the giggles. He slips the ring on the finger that could be that of a hand model. An hour of passionate lovemaking with the hand model has made Mr. Amadan feel twenty again. He returns to the hotel, BRANDISHES the less than "biggest diamond he can find" at the doorman. The lowly paid employee smiles, showing all his teeth. To him, it looks as if it is worth a million dollars. Mr. Amadan returns to his suite. He walks through looking for his wife. The shower is running. He can hear the water. He peers in. Mrs. Amadan is DEAD, apparently slipped in the shower and hit her head. Mr. Amadan smiles as he lifts the receiver to call for help. He doesn't have a worry in the world. The Doorman will REMEMBER him.

Working on the Frontline - COVID 19: New York

Have you wondered about the workers on the frontline? How do they feel meeting the coronavirus
head-on? My original reason for writing this document was to keep track of my experience. Kathleen Harryman, her words meant a lot and went a long way to sealing my decision to publish. So, come,
walk a mile in my shoes. 
Eventually, it became a means for me to express and interpret my feelings in black and white. I considered sharing and then I changed my mind. I had stopped documenting my experience. I had decided against publishing this journal because I felt it stripped my feelings and deepest and darkest thoughts bare, but when I read a tweet from a fellow author,

This book is an expression of my feelings and thoughts and in no way reflects the experiences or feelings of other frontline workers.

Disjointed Tales by Ken Fry - A Book Review

Disjointed Tales: Short Stories of the Weird and the Macabre by [Fry, Ken]This is a book of six short stories. I absolutely enjoy short stories. These by Ken Fry did not disappoint me at all. I loved that I could start one of the stories during a short break and finish it—completely satisfied. I went into this book blind, thinking I would guess the outcome. I finished the first story with my mouth hanging open at how far off base I was. By the second story, I had this author Ken Fry's MO down. I knew I would guess the ending—until it arrived. I was left blinking with a chuckle reverberating in my chest. By the third, I decided to just lay back and let Mr. Fry tell me a story. I enjoyed each tale and recommend this collection, especially if you are short on time and you need a compact entertaining story told by a clever author.

Books to Read With Something Extra - The Twist

Have you ever been reading a mystery or thriller or even watching a movie, and knew you had it all
figured out, and just as quickly as the light dies with the flip of a switch, everything you believed would happen had turned 360 degrees? The plot twist. You gotta love'em. Why? Not only do they catch you off guard, but the twist gives you something to snack on long after the story is over. The best plot twists are unexpected. They are especially satisfying when they come near the end of the story. Do you agree?

Let me introduce you to a series that has surprised readers since book one - GUILTY. The Marston Series has five books presently. The endings are never what the reader expects. One reader left a review saying, "I loved all the twists and turns." Did the book leave readers with something to chew on when the story was over? Another reader says, "This is a great book about justice, but it's a lot more than that."

Coach Jackson was well-respected and loved by the community. Hell, they all trusted him. Here's the thing. His popularity in the community held like glue even when Rose, a high school cheerleader, pointed the finger at him as her attacker. He spent his days coaching his team and flashing his pearly whites while Rose grappled to pull her life back together. Not only was he the football coach and she was a cheerleader for the team, his son, Jonas was also her boyfriend. 

You can listen to GUILTY free via Audible. Just pick a free code, copy it, and paste the code into the Audible link. Get the codes here. When you get there, a surprise ending is waiting for you—three other audiobooks you can have free. If the codes run out before I post new ones, just send me a message. 

By the way: if you enjoy being all twisted up at the end of a book, check out The Marston Series and the Romantic Suspense novels: Her Cheating Man, A Secret Love, Ashes of Old Lovers

Happy Reading!

Seedfolks - A Book Review

The title caught my eye first. Next, the cover drew my attention. Once I started reading, I knew this book offered more than a way to pass the time. I love short stories because sometimes I get so busy I have read in small bites. This book is like a collection of very short stories that are connected by the garden. Each story is told by a character, an immigrant, in their distinctive voice. I particularly enjoyed Sae Young. As I read, I could hear her speaking in the familiar broken English that I have heard many times, sometimes daily. Another aspect I enjoyed in this book is how it addressed the issues which we deal with today like immigration, racial profiling, and segregation. The author nor the characters never say this is what is happening. It is described as unintimidating as the weather. You know it is happening, and you understand it from the character's point of view. The character's story doesn't end. It's like a conversation. Each person tells their story and simply move to the background while the next person picks up the conversation. I know this book is written for children, but I enjoyed it. I often enjoy a good children's story, probably because I have read so many to and with my children; the ones that offer wisdom as well as entertainment. One is never too old to learn something new. 😃

Review of The Gravel Road by Patrick Brown

After reading The Gravel Road by Patrick Brown, I felt compelled to share my experience with the story.

This is a beautifully written story. When I read the first sentence, I knew I had to read this story. The strange thing is, I can't explain why. Each page drew me farther into the story, and I became more invested in the characters as well as their plights. The characters were written so well that I could envision them as real people. Throughout the novel, there are these little mysteries that teeter on the edge of the story. I confess that although I had one of the mysteries figured out quite early because of my profession, it took nothing away from how much the story captivated me. Although my eyes filled with tears during the last few chapters, the author gave me a reason to smile at the end. Life happens. To be able to share a story like this in a way that evokes such a wide range of emotions from a reader is a gift. The funny thing is, I have been seeing this book on Twitter for months, maybe longer. Last night I clicked and read the first sentence of the sample and downloaded the book. I thank the author for sharing Clark, Ernie, Rachel, and even Abigal. I don't know if one can consider the El Camino, Jack Daniels, and two shot glasses as characters, but they helped to make this unforgettable story. Definitely five stars, teardrops, and smiles.
