Enjoy an excerpt:
He groaned aloud as he gingerly surveyed his battered body for damage.
Despite some newly acquired grit, his teeth were intact.
Head still moved although it pounded.
Arms and shoulders worked but were sore.
Yup, Pete, tree climbing was a seriously stupid idea. At the time, of course, the idea hadn’t seemed stupid. How difficult could it be for a lost computer geek to clamber up a low-limbed tree like a little kid, get his bearings, and jump down?
Later, he could scold himself for too many hours behind a computer and not enough hours at the tennis table, but right now, he needed to spit. And wipe this crap off his face so he could open his eyes. He brushed his palms off and slowly propped himself on an elbow.
Everything hurt, but it all seemed to be working. That was a relief. He had no backup plan for being alone in the woods with an injury. He spat out what he hoped was only dirt and ran his tongue over the remaining grit while he wiped around his eyes.
Good thing Chris and Jimmy weren’t there. If they had witnessed his impromptu tree dive, he would never have heard the end of it. He rolled over to spit again.
Holy— The sudden pain blazing down the back of his leg took his breath away. Alarm shot through him proportional to its intensity.
About the Author:
After a string of undergrad majors, I realized I could reach a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? I jumped into teaching with both feet and loved it for 27 years. It came with an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh. Go figure.
Twelve years after our first kiss, I reunited with, and married my childhood sweetheart. Together we coached our daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, our daughter and our money went to college.
During a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, I turned to Fitness to boost my Health, and to Writing to boost my Happiness. Currently, I am a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to write.
We presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When I’m not writing novels for my Love of Fairs series, I enjoy dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. I also promote increasing movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer at http://deborahanndavis.com/merry-meddling.
