The darling fawn in my arms is not Itzey. Itzey’s my cat.
This newborn was found in the road by a young teenager who came to my door asking if I could help.
I had to cradle it for a few minutes before I returned it to the woods. It’s not often you get to hold such a soft precious animal.
Things are pretty laid back in the north Georgia Mountains.
I hope you can join me by the fireplace for a hot cup of coffee while we chat about the most recent new book I’ve read. Feel free to let me know what you are reading as well.
Retirement has its virtues and kicking back with a good book is one of them. And at my age, I get to be selective. So no bodice rippers, graphic novels or really “out there” sci-fi for me. A little weird is fine… I recently purchased The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children entitled Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs and I loved The Martian by Andy Weir.
And I will toss out that I am not interested in mushy romance and/or religious soaked stories that resemble Hallmark movies. My novels have to have a little substance and grit.
My favorite reads are historical fiction that are well researched and transport me to another time and place; debut authors; suspense and thrillers, coming of age stories, and just about anything else that is well crafted.
Remember if you will, I am new at this blogging stuff. I grew up with rotary phones and manual typewriters.
