Bea lives in Charlotte, NC.
In addition to writing science fiction and fantasy (and a smidgen of horror) she enjoys a good read, working crossword puzzles, walking, drawing, and painting.
She is a retired electronics technician and admits to having worked at a variety of other jobs during her life, including being a dishwasher, a busgirl, a house maid, a motel/hotel maid, working in a fast-food joint, a telephone operator, and a store clerk. There have been other, not-so-glamorous jobs, including picking cotton.
She also daydreams a lot.

INTERRUPTIONS is an enjoyable paranormal short story that builds well, the shifters element handled in a descriptive, but controlled manner. It also has a nice sense of comedy which blends in suitably with the action, never becoming parodic.

I was intrigued by the fact that this doesn't appear to be the usual kind of werewolf story with packs and alphas and such. Just a couple (Cady and Sam) trying to live a normal life and raise their kid.
It's a short story that starts slow, but I was ok with it because I kind of like a build up and it suited the quiet lifestyle this couple is trying to lead.
Trouble starts when the neighborhood flirt shows up on their doorsteps with a broken down car seeking help to get it started and gets foiled in her attempt to get Sam alone when it turns out he knows nothing about cars. Cady goes back to the car with her and that's when the fun begins. It's a short so if I say any more, that'll just about be the story.
All in all, I enjoyed it. There are two other stories (both longer than this one, I think) about this family which I intend to read and I hope they expand the circumstances hinted at in this one.
I'd recommend it to anyone who likes something a little different.

I really like these characters. The flow of the story is an easy read. The people are likeable and the love is there. I like the way Cady and Sam handle the "Interruption" of their night. I hope this story goes further. What going to happen to the daughter as she grows? What other adventures will Cady and Sam get up to, while trying to stay hidden and live a quiet life?
