#FictionFriday; It’s A Mystery

We all love a good mystery. I think it’s in our human DNA.  Even at a young age when we would read to our kids growing up, the books that had an air of uncertainty and mystery always left them asking us to “read it again” or “read one more chapter.” What would happen next? We did not own a television in the Nice home until the kids were in junior high school, so naturally our evening family entertainment focused on board games and lots of reading. Our family favorite for many years was a series called, The Happy Hollisters by Jerry West. The first four books in this series were published by Doubleday & Company, Inc in 1953 and there are 33 books available.

#FictionFriday in Connie’s Corner

It’s #FictionFriday in Connie’s Corner where I hope to share with you some of what I’m currently working on in my writers studio as well as reviews and text cuts from interesting books or articles that I’ve read. Much of what I have written personally, in the way of fiction, relates to children growing up and their individual play and exploration of who they are and who they will become. My first attempt at putting stories down on paper goes back to when my son Aaron was about four years old. We lived on a remote homestead property in the coast range mountains close to Tillamook, Oregon. Since there were no close neighborhood children to play with, Aaron became very good at creating his own friends and assorted adventures. That is where I first heard about, and...
