How would you respond?


I love random writing challenges posed to make you delve into your creative juices. They help me imagine a fun response. How would you respond to this one?

For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note. Here's my response:

Dear Aunty Marg - thank you for your very thoughtful gift. You know I just love Maple syrup and the dispenser reminds me of my childhood when you used to feed the chickens and that old rooster chased me. Remember? I'm sure you do! You saved me from it - and now I've got a wonderful memory of how wonderful you always were to me. I love you.

Last Days in Atlantis. (Young Adult Novel)

Mari is thrust into a position of responsibility as the warrior leader of the Atlantean Hill People before she's ready. She strives to make choices that are best for her and her people against a backdrop of deception and intrigue. She becomes entangled in the power struggles between her people and the rulers of the City of the Golden Gates. 

Events test her trust in the traditions of her people and her confidence in those who are dear to her: the Elders, her mother, and the young man she is expected to share her life with.  Mari believes she has failed the task and struggles to overcome her feelings of grief, guilt, and betrayal as her very survival is threatened. 
 

I have written two children's stories about Beatrice, a young angel-in-training with one large wing. The first to be published, Beatrice Learns Compassion, was illustrated by my granddaughter, Bella, when she was 10-years-old. Bella is currently illustrating the secon book, Beatrice Spreads Joy. 

The Beatrice book is available on Kindle. It's suited to young children. Print copies are available to purchase through the contact page
