The Winter Kitten

Introducing The Winter Kitten - a brand new short story available today as an eBook on Amazon.

Brianna doesn't know how she'll make it through her first winter in Portland. It rains too much, she misses her mother and the country life they once shared, and with Christmas coming up she's having a hard time adjusting to life with only her dad. When she finds a kitten trapped in their garage, Brianna is sure things will get better. But nothing goes as planned, and Brianna wonders what she's gotten herself into.
Inspired by a real-life experience with a kitten named Xena, I hope this story will warm your heart in any season.
I originally started this to be part of an anthology. Then it morphed into something a little longer, I added characters and thought, hmm, I wonder if I could publish it myself? Many of my friends have gone this route, but my previous books have all been with publishers.
So I waited, thought about it some more, got some help with the cover and editing and voila! I did it!
It's available at present in the Kindle version. If you don't own a Kindle, you can download the Kindle app from Amazon onto your phone or computer (for free) and read it there.
Hope you enjoy it! (And if you do, a review would be awesome.) It's priced at only 99 cents. You can buy it here:
Thanks - and Happy Holidays!

I just commented on FB that I didn't know you had a book out that looked like this. Then suddenly I saw an e-mail in my inbox all about it. I just bought it for my Kindle and am looking forward to reading it.
Thanks and good luck with your book!
