To The Crying Girl Who Made Me Think (Excerpt from “My Little Book of Essays”)

I wrote this quite a few years back (maybe 16 years ago, maybe a little more) and never really got around to getting it to where I wanted it. As I was working on some things tonight I came across it again and thought that maybe I’d pass it along.

Just so you know… I wrote the original part of this on the plane and gave it to the girl after I collected my luggage. When I got home I sat down at my desk and did my best to reconstruct the letter. I think it is pretty close to what I originally wrote, but I can’t be certain of that fact. And, since that time I have often wondered if she ever read it, or if it helped her at all. I hope it did.

The Introduction of the Tuckas (Excerpt from Children’s Book)

I’ve been asked several times to better explain the Tuckas after the last excerpt, so here is a portion of the book from before the last post. It happens earlier in the book and lightly explains what the Tuckas are, and how they relate to the story. There’s more, but this should suffice.

The Cave Part I (Excerpt from Children’s Book)

This is an excerpt from the children’s book that I’m working on, from time-to-time. Hope you enjoy. Again, I don’t edit or proof-read so there will be mistakes. Just comment and let me know. 🙂 Also, this is mid-book… so just keep that in mind. The book doesn’t begin this way.

The Cave Part I

They went hand-in-hand (or in some cases, hand-in-hoof) further down into the cave until it got so dark that Tessa and Levi could not see anything at all. “I’m scared,” whispered Levi.

“I am, too,” Tessa whispered back. They took another few careful steps before Continue reading
