Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming, a near-future sci fi romance. Dusty Johnson, a mild-mannered tech writer,* and a Kwadran** guard have discovered a time bomb hidden in the mechanical deck of an unfinished starship prototype. Now they hurry to remove it from the ship before it explodes. * I spent 20+ years […]

I, Effing Feline, wish you a happy Memorial Day! Of course, that’s an American holiday. If you’re in Canada, happy belated Victoria Day. (I hope you got your garden planted.) If you’re in England, happy Spring Bank Holiday. (Do humans, and not just banks, get the day off work?) For Australians, happy Reconciliation Day. (Is […]

Picture It I’ve decided to try to start a Thursday feature on my blog — a feature that requires little writing, hence time. Each Thursday I’ll post a photograph I’ve taken. I find these photos interesting in themselves. Hopefully some of you will, too. This picture was taken from my yard, about ten feet from […]

I, Effing Feline, am about to shock you, so hold onto your hair pieces. I sometimes take naps. Most cats do, of course, but I am such an exceptional specimen, a cat who has accomplished so much, that I know you’re thinking I work 16 hours a day, every day. But I am a BIG […]

Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming, a science fiction romance. Dusty Johnson, a mild-mannered tech writers, was searching alone for a time bomb hidden in the mechanical deck of an unfinished starship prototype when she discovered a lone Kwadran* guard who is also searching. She rescues him by helping remove his pants when […]

I, Effing Feline, chose a snippet today in which the surprised hero finds himself asking Why? It’s a question I often ask myself. Why don’t mice crawl into my food bowl at dinnertime? Why is a lap not automatically available whenever I wish for one? Why must I share a house with Twiggles the Dog? […]

[On the last possible day, I reached my Camp NaNoWriMo goal of 40,000 words. Whew!] Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming. Last week the heroine, Dusty Johnson, was searching alone for a time bomb hidden in the mechanical deck of an unfinished starship prototype, designed by alien Kwadrans. What she finds is a […]
