That Warm Feeling

I took half a dozen warm mince pies to my good friends Vittoria and Nino a couple of nights ago. It is the season of baking and we often exchange sweet treats. I enjoy Vittoria’s Italian dolce, and she enjoys my traditional British Christmas fare. We sat and talked for a while. She is very patient of my limited Italian, I’m getting better but slowly. During our conversation about my daughter and son-in-law’s upcoming Christmas visit, she got up and pulled my book “Princess Tess and her Mess” from her bookshelf. Tess of course is my daughter’s pup, and the furry four legged character in my book.

It made me happy and warm inside knowing my book is in their house. I don’t write to make money, but to share my stories. Knowing it is read and enjoyed in other countries makes me very happy.

Princess Tess and her Mess

Princess Tess

Grrrrr, snarl… The dog spat nastiness from its slack mouth filled with crooked, yellowing teeth. Tess and Sandra walked even slower. The menacing dog moved slowly, in time with them, but on the other side of the fence.Tess stopped in her tracks and looked at Sandra. Finally, Sandra was able to see the backyard gate, which was wide open.
“Oh, dear, Tess, this ugly old dog could have a collar on that keeps in in the yard, or it could come out and bite me.”
It would bite me first…
Sandra picked up Tess, who was shaking a little. “Let’s go home!”
Good idea.
Tess watched over Sandra’s shoulder until the snarling, growling creature was out of sight.
I like rabbits better!

My first Children’s book is finished. A short story about a small pup called Tess. A cute, but comical pup. My editor said the book made her laugh out loud in places. My daughter, who is the loving owner of this little bundle of cuteness, likes the story so much she is going to add some illustrations. Hopefully it will be published by the summer, so stay tuned. This is the first in a series of three short stories about Princess Tess. Children’s books are fun to write.
