Doc is a veterinarian whose backyard is filled with animal friends, including Margie the myopic, sniffing skunk. One day, a mysterious visitor makes a mess and the animals must find the intruder. Will their adventures lead to more trouble or love at first smell?
When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
It seemed like the right way to end the book. Earlier, when Doc sees that Margie and Kit are smitten with each other, he says "nature's rules" and is not surprised by the event. However, now my readers want a sequel! Doc says "Whatever will I do?" and I am feeling the same way. I am open to suggestions, so fire away and give me your thoughts.
Glasses for Margie
Doc suspected. He thought he knew. He was not sure what he would do. He decided to take a little walk to Margie’s den. As he bent down, he saw Margie curled up on a soft bed of leaves she had made for herself. But, she was not alone. Quietly nursing her were four soft fur balls. “I was right. The babies will be blind and deaf for about three weeks and well protected by Margie and Kit in the den. But what next? I don’t think I really need six skunks in my yard.” Margie gave Doc a little skunk smile. Doc scratched the top of his bald head and mumbled to himself, “Six skunks? Whatever will I do?”
