Good comments are appreciated on my Smashwords profile page or my website .

Look for the “cozy mystery” series, first chick sleuth novel set in Oregon called "Henri Loses Her Beau" and the second “Silverton Cozy” - Louisa’s Luck Has Changed.”

This story is dedicated to my daughter in Oregon.

The Initials of Clara and Stanley

Im Clara. Im 15. Im scratching C + S in the wood on the arm of the chair that was my grandmothers. On the left arm of the chair, I can reach across with my right hand and carve my initial C plus Stanleys S. More like scratch than carve, because the wood is hard. The initials are kind of square instead of curvy like I want them. C plus S, but all in little straight lines.
