Puppy Love, Pink Bats and Armageddon
It was the cover of her book, The Puppy Diaries.
That face !
Her golden retriever Scout, the highly acclaimed addition to the "dogoir genre", that grabbed my heart!
My own thriller series features a golden retriever named Honey. Though her coat is a bit darker than Jill's puppy, now I will always see her as a grown-up Scout!
Enough to leave his cherished walnut farm to fight as our SecDef in our "blizzard war."
A true blue wise man who leads us on multiple fronts, as needed, even in a possible unspeakable face of an Armageddon.
A rara avis who got all 100 votes from those folks in the Senate.
They say he "calls it as he sees it" – with a Midas touch of negotiating skills, who with little experience in spycraft won over that whole building of Langley spooks.
I'm a pushover for unique creativity.
Talk about a childhood dream come true!
Her treehouse even has lights, a record player.
Pink bats on the wall!
Plus glass windows "that dangle on the ground floor level like earrings."
What a retreat!
What a writer's sanctuary!
If I had a treehouse with pink bats and those earrings, I bet I could win an Edgar or two.
Maybe a whole Nobel!!!
