Start writing...I'm a kid's author and illustrator (50+ publications, including ghostwriting) but LOVE to write in a variety of genres. I hope you enjoy them all!
Blessings to you and yours,
"Hey, Ellie?" Ellie sighed and glanced at the computer clock. Her deadline to finish this piece was in less than two hours. Since her lunch break, Nate had called her for a glass of water, help to find his glasses, a bowl of soup, help finding the remote (under his pillow), and to act as backup for his trek down the hall to the bathroom. She'd done each patiently, but this time the sound of her husband's voice irritated her.
The Battle for the Castle
"Ready the troops for battle!" Goldman sighed and, if possible, would have rolled his eyes. The sigh could be construed as weariness. The eye-rolling, though... That could set The Major off, turning his unending wrath from the enemy to him. So eye-rolling was stifled and the sigh had to do. "Sir," he began, "there are very few troops left. Not even enough to call them a troop."
