Snippet from The Glade Series



This snippet is from Book 1 in The Glade Series which is featured here.  All three books are available through my website.  Make sure your volume is turned up to hear some soothing Celtic tunes.  Happy reading to you!

Davy's birthday was July 1st, a whole month away.  Memories of previous years' celebrations flashed instantaneously before his eyes:  pool parties (hosted by Uncle Frank and Aunt Jane, of course); movies; putt-putt golf, sleepovers where no one actually went to sleep but competed in video games until dawn.  These all had one component in common:  friends!  This birthday, there would be no friends.  The thought of spending his eleventh birthday in the company of a whiny sister, a mom who didn't care how he felt, and a step-father who rated one rung lower than pond scum was too much for Davy to bear.

"It won't be fun for me!"  he shouted at Jim.  "Nothing about this summer will be any fun for me!  Do you hear me?  NOTHING!"

If you visit the website, I would love your feedback.  You can either comment here on this post, or contact me via e-mail through the site itself.

Until next Sunday, may your life abound with blessings!

    1. Yes, indeed, Sharon, Davy IS quite the angry one, but wonderful things begin to happen in the story which turns him around. Do hope you will consider reading the series.
      Blessings!

  4. Poor kid! I can so identify with him. Nobody deserves to be deprived of a birthday celebration when you're a kid. Hope there are better things in store for him.
