Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

The Postman Cometh Again

Actually, it's the postwoman, Debi, who brought the box to the door this time.

Naturally, the box required a cat scan. Every package entering this house gets a cat scan.

Gosh, I don't know which one to read first. They all look so good.

Wait! What happened to my books?

Eddie-puss: Secrets of the Sands. Sands? Must be about kitty litter. I can relate to that. Foxy, what are you going to read?

Foxy: Hmmm. A Certain Strain of Peculiar or Eli the Good. Tough decision. Chloe, you can have the peculiar one. Seeing as how you're so peculiar. . . .

Chloe: OK, Foxy, you don't have to be so catty. But—but—there's nothing on this page. And I don't know how to read!

I'm looking forward to reading these books by Leona Wisoker, Gigi Amateau, and Silas House—as soon as the cats return them.

Your cats are the cutest things! They must be full of curiosity and very well read kitties.
