Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. This is a sample from my work in progress, “Frankenkitty”, and I hope you enjoy it. It started out as a young-adult superhero book, and well, you’ll see. The heroine has just lost her precious cat, “Mr. Snuffles” due to an unfortunate interaction with a moving vehicle. Her elderly neighbor from across the street has a present for her. We begin there.
Jennifer opened the lid and looked at the contents. They were books; dusty old hand-written books.
“Mrs. Jones, what are these?”
“They were my great grand-vaters, from his laboratory.”
Jennifer opened the one she held and tried to read it, “It’s in German; I don’t know German.”
“Not German, Schwabish; bring it here and I’ll read the first few words.”
Jennifer took the first volume to Mrs. Jones. The old woman opened it and began to read, “Experiments in the reanimation of dead tissue.”
Jennifer asked, “What is this?”
“Didn’t you know, I am a descendent of the great Dr. Baron von Frankenstein; these are his journals.”
This is a work in progress. In other news, I’ve become a booktrope author, but more on that next week.
