First Line of Novel in Progress

From the wooded lot beside the small country church, Fred Blunt waited and constantly checked his watch.

That's the first line in my novel True Hidden Treasures. Hope it makes you want to read more!

If you look closely at the picture of my Cocker Spaniel, Sunflower, and look behind the blue chair, you'll see a picture of my deceased mother, Alice Myrtle Threeton Russell, and I'm the young lady in pink :).

A quote to inspire writers: The great American novel has not only already been written, it has already been rejected.
Frank Dane

I love animals, especially dogs and cats, and I put my dog in my novel, but the book is fiction. I loved Because of Winn Dixie and thought the dog made the novel, so I thought mine would add a special touch for dog lovers :)

My Youngest Son

I've written a story about Rodney, too, but I haven't posted it here, since it's a full story I hope to publish one day. We're at Wendy's for Christmas in this picture, taken a couple of years ago. Rodney loved to tinker with old bikes and cars growing up, and he grew up to become an auto mechanic until he switched to AC repairman. He should be getting the business as hot as it is. My oldest son says he's been fixing them right and left. Both boys know how to work on vehicles and ACs. Scotty, the oldest son, also puts down flooring,tile or carpet. I love to write family memories and write about my family. Could use those boys if they lived nearer. Need some remodeling help, and they'd be perfect for the job, but they can't make it until Thanksgiving or Christmas, and it won't wait until then. Besides, they're coming to relax, not work. I can't wait to see them. Miss seeing my family this summer. I usually get to see them twice a year, summer and winter, but I'm not able to this year, since my husband has a new job and no vacation time. I can smell those crawfish boils and backyard barbecues. Miss you guys.
