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 :)

I can't wait to ready your new one. I have Magnolia A Wilting Flower and The Lord had Something Better in Mind sitting on my desk now. I show them off to my friends that like to read.

Love you
Kim
