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. Last week Jenny and her father met Mrs. Jones and arranged for an exchange student, Gertrude von Volkstein, to visit. This week, in the chapter, “The Gerbil from Hell,” the girls find a test subject.


Bobby’s Gerbil died in the night from whatever it was that carried off small animals. He, Bobby, not the Gerbil, of course, was upset. His mother and Jennifer were secretly relieved. Like most boys, he’d promised to look after the animal, keep the cage clean, the poor thing fed and played with. These tasks had devolved on his mother and sister. The body was put in the fridge so that a proper funeral could be arranged.

Jennifer called Amber on her cell on the way to school.

“Amber, we have a subject.”


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 last chapter if you’d rather.  I’ve added a sub-title “(some assembly required).”

I’m also looking for reviewers for my nearly ready book “The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven” It’s moved out of layout to final assembly.

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.

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.
