Weekend Writing Warriors.
My first installment of 8 sentences is from my upcoming Romantic Thriller, Stutter Creek. It will be out in June, 2013 from 5 Prince Publishing. I will post another snippet each Sunday. Stay tuned!
Following her father’s death and the collapse of her marriage, Beth retreats to the family cabin at Stutter Creek where she stumbles across the path of a serial killer and winds up fighting just to stay alive.
Amanda Myers was making a conscious effort to keep her heavy foot off the Toyota’s gas pedal when she spied what appeared to be a small boy standing beside the road. An old fashioned newsboy cap nearly obscured his tiny face.
Mandy hit the brake and steered the Celica toward the gravel shoulder. With a practiced hand, she quickly texted her coworker, Myra, and asked her to concoct a cover story for her tardiness.
The kid had seemed very small in silhouette—maybe five or six years old—and no house or vehicle in sight.
When Myra texted back to say the boss was on the warpath, Mandy replied, “Well, just tell him I stopped to pick up a boy on the edge of town. That should really turn his face red!”
It was an inside joke; everyone knew when the boss’s face was red it was wise to give him a wide berth.
