FrankenKitty 4 #wewriwar


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. In last week’s snippet Jenny’s friendship with Amber and Mary grew, and in the midst of the highlight (or low-light) of high-school biology -fetal pigs- she let them in on the secret.  Today we begin to see where they’re going with it.

Mary carefully sounded out “Experimente in der Reanimation von abgestorbenem Gewebe,” and then said, “That doesn’t mean experiments in reanimation, does it?”

Jennifer nodded, “Yes it does, Experiments in the Reanimation of Dead Tissue.”

“And the name inside,” Mary continued, “That’s not really Frankenstein, I mean the Frankenstein?”

“It is, my neighbor Mrs. Jones gave them to me. She was his great-granddaughter; these are his lab-notes.”

Amber laughed, “Do you think they’d work?”

“I’d like to try; bring back my cat Mr. Snuffles.”

“That’s not possible; he must have been insane.”

Whatever was there, no matter how ill-conceived or incorrect, wasn’t insane.  Amber sat there, slightly stunned, “You know, Jenny, it might just work. ”

This is a work in progress. In other news, I’ve become a booktrope author, but more on that latter. It has meant a change in pen-name. Last Weeks is here and you can read the whole chapter if you’d rather.

I’m also looking for reviewers for my nearly ready book “The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven”

Author: rharrisonauthor

International man of mystery. Well not really, although I can mangle several languages and even read the occasional hieroglyphic. A computer scientist, an author and one of the very few people who has both an NIH grant and had a book contract. An ex- booktrope author and a photographer.

  1. Oy!! This will end badly… BUT that does make for good stories.

    Really good snippet. Loads of information, yet it flows well. I didn’t get caught up on any of the details.

Bedrock & Paradox

I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a non-human world and yet somehow survives still intact, individual, separate. Paradox and bedrock.
