Six Sentence Sunday, August 26, 2012 – #sixsunday

Following is another excerpt from my novella, Cookies for Santa.  The story is about a tough homicide detective who has been assigned to help out in the Social Services Department for the holiday season.  He finds himself going undercover as Santa to catch a murderer and to protect his new love interest.

Shannon’s mind drifted away from thoughts of the Clarkson children to Spinelli. She wondered what he was like as a child. She wondered how many times a caseworker pulled his file from a drawer and recommended foster care for him. The events of Spinelli’s life gave her hope for the other children in the system. He made it out of the system and did well for himself. Maybe the Clarkson children will as well.

Following is the third excerpt from my novella, Cookies for Santa.  The story is about a tough homicide detective who goes undercover as Santa to catch a killer and to protect his new love interest.

“So you’re going to stick out the Santa thing at least another day?”

“What are you saying? You don’t think I make a good Santa?”

 Sannon’s soft sweet chuckle rang through his ears. “Oh, you’re a natural, all right. I don’t recall ever seeing a man look so horrified at the sight of children.”

Thanks for stopping by.

Six Sentence Sunday, August 5, 2012

Following is another excerpt from my novella, Cookies for Santa.  The story is about a tough homicide detective who has been assigned to help out in the Social Services Department for the holiday season.  The hero finds himself going undercover as Santa to catch a murderer.

“Well, you must be desperate for cash to take a job as Santa,” one elf said.

 Spinelli tilted his head to the side and cocked a brow. “Why do you say that?”

“Well, it’s not like you enjoy it. You’re the worst Santa I’ve ever seen,” the elf commented as he chuckled. “You looked stiff as a board all day and when that kid peed on you I thought you were going to have the holy big one.”
