  1. This is one of my responses to a prompt in the forums—a standalone short. I did a series of the prompts over the years and we're required to collect them under an anthology title (Prompt Ramblings) due to their size. I didn't expand this one into a full novel. This is the whole thing.
  2. Why not? It could be full of fun scenes! "Oh god, he's pretending he's John Wick again. He stuffed me in his belt and I'm way too close to his groin. Somebody tell this man to shower." It could be greatness!
  3. I'm trying to get him to pull the trigger, but I might have to add that during edits.

    Their names were changed off screen between chapters. Reminders of Fergus would be a sore spot for the pack and how could you deal with raising a pair twins with those names?

      I missed you at 8am today.

  6. It’s very weird to be Wednesday and not have a chapter to share after 44 weeks straight. 

  7. Sawyer didn't remember which local craft fair Maddie had acquired the handmade calendar. Engraved designs of forest and wolves topped the hardwood plaque filled with rows of changeable tiles marking the months and days. Frivolous and purely decorative, he'd all but ignored it during his teen years. Now with his new knowledge, it took on so much more meaning. The twenty-fifth had been replaced. Between the twenty-four and twenty-six sat a stylized pine tree topped with a star. Sawyer al

    Better than Jada going through what Sawyer did under the full moon.

    well, I couldn't answer earlier and spoil it, now could I?

    Nothing is as satisfying as Jimmy's jambalaya...

    I've enjoyed writing this story so much and have to really thank the readers for all the feedback and comments. It's helped keep me on track on a regular weekly schedule I never imagined I could pull off.

    Chapter 43

    This story is primarily about Jimmy and Sawyer. We may get to learn more about Maddie and Doris, but that would be for a later tale if I come up with one. (Never say never. I try to leave openings to jump off from in case I have an idea I can't walk away from.)

    Sorry. Sawyer and Jimmy's story is coming to a close. We've been running weekly since last May and it's time to bring our boys to a good place.

    thank you! I work really hard to answer the important questions in my stories, while leaving just enough open for a future story if a new idea comes to mind.

    I think our new pack is on the right track.

    Thanks! Cleaning up the threads is always a task. I need to make sure I tidy things up before we finish Sawyer and Jimmy's story.

    I love writing strong, female characters that run the gamut of dangerous to clever.
  19. Daylight breaking through the tree canopy teased Jimmy out of a solid sleep. Blinking, he forced out the grogginess as the world came into focus. The room was unfamiliar, but the man in Jimmy’s arms was not. Blankets up to his nose, Sawyer slept like the dead, not even registering Jimmy’s movements. He hadn’t recalled Sawyer dozing so soundly since the night of Irwin’s attack. Jimmy drew the covers down, exposing Sawyer’s shoulder. Pink and freshly healed, a bite scar left a neat ring in th
  20. When Jimmy's condition stabilized, Maddie's gaze flitted to the ceiling, a child-like joy on her face. Sawyer knew this woman was his mother, but her behavior made her practically a stranger. In a matter of minutes, she'd gone from ruthless avenger, to focused elder, to flower child. Her eyes retained their wolfen amber, and the rest of her appearance continued to be youthful and pristine. “Mom?” Maddie's every motion floated, reactions delayed a touch. Her focus drifted as if mildly d

    Got my first shot this morning. I guess that means I don't have to respond for four weeks?
  22. Had Sawyer grown up a religious man, he’d pray to have his night vision stricken and block the sight of the hellish carnage strewn across his mother’s backyard. Sweat rolled over his injured body, soaking his clothing as he stepped carefully, avoiding the fresh corpses. He’d never seen a dead person up close before, and now there were so many, he wished he could forget the horrors he’d seen. The smell… he worried it would be tattooed inside his nostrils forever. His and his family’s surviva

    I don't want to be part of the clean up crew on this one.
