Back to School (Anna Farmer #7)

It was with great sorrow that Anna trudged back to school the first day following her suspension. She got up early that rainy morning, visiting Oinky and Baby Lion in the barn and tearfully explaining that she would be absent again for a while. Oinky and Baby Lion hadn’t the slightest clue what Anna was […]

Starlight #9: Skeletons in the Closet

Starlight is a series I started writing for fun in 2016, written in the “style” of a comic book.  As such, this is not my best writing, but it’s something I had fun doing. Nala, Hunter, and Eliza hurry up to Hurt House. Eliza: Come on, guys, hurry. Hunter: Um, are we sure this is safe? Nala: It’s definitely not. Hunter: Great. Cadmus (Narration): It’s been a weird day.

Baby Lion (Anna, Farmer #5)

Anna’s father remained upset with her for a day, and then two days, and by the third, it was clear that she had gravely wounded him. Ever since the ill-fated meeting with Uncle Sam, Mr. McDermott had retreated back into his paperwork, pushing papers and running facts and figures with such an intensity that when […]

Upon her return to Steppe Hills, Anna was brought to the assistant principal who informed her in a very severe tone that she was suspended.

The Walk (Anna, Farmer #3)

And so it came to be that Anna strolled out through the media center of her school, a determined look in her small brown eyes. Brash, but thoughtful, Anna ducked through the scattered shelves of various educational materials and computers, avoiding the watchful gazes of the normally quite perceptive librarians. As it happened, Anna was […]
