Mystery Author! Episode 2

This is the second installment where I have typed up something delicious by a famous author for your reading pleasure. As a reminder, we play this game: You don’t know who wrote it until the end.

Playing Hookey

The sound of rain greets me in the morning. I smile and pull the fleece blankets up to my chin. I roll over and dread rising, as always these days, but I’m consoled by the pitter patter. It pleases me that it finally started raining. I love the sound of it. I also enjoy that […]

She knew this was coming.  She’d been called up for a meeting with the Grand Rock Council, a local chapter […]

Return of The Witch

The witch hid in the bushes, eyes narrowed, watching the house closely. Any minute now, she thought. She waited breathlessly for the result of 5 weeks’ worth of hard study. It was a clear moonlit night. She gazed into the yard and squinted. Shadows of the porch beams crossed the grass, slanting across the yard. […]
