Six Sentence Sunday

From my work in progress Locations of the Heart:

Rachel arrived at their table and flipped their sturdy brown coffee mugs over.  “Just decaf today, ladies, or half and half?” She held the orange-rimmed carafe poised over Minnie’s cup.

“It’s a half and half day,” Edith said.  “Any day that Gordon Anderson is in town requires a dose of caffeine.”

Minnie snorted. “It requires Jack Daniels, but it’s a little too early in the day.”

Also available:



Sucker for a Hot Rod is now available in trade paperback from CreateSpace.
