Beyond the Book

Today let's have another excerpt from Flood. I hope you're enjoying them because I sure did enjoy writing that book. First a blurb, then that excerpt that picks up where we left off last week.

Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.

Last Week:

Aria snickered. “No, we aren’t getting a convict, but one of the big animal shelters in Pine City has several. Listen to this. They took in an abuse case, an adult dog that nobody but one of their convicts could reach.” She sniffed. “Since the dog isn’t especially friendly or pretty, nobody wants to adopt it. It’s scheduled to be put down on Friday unless someone steps up for it, and guess who’d have to walk the dog to the killing room?”

“The convict?”


This week:

Lila studied her fingernails for a moment. This week she had painted them neon green which clashed with the blue scrubs she was wearing. It didn’t look all that good with her red hair and freckles either, but Lila had her own style and always had.

“What are you going to do about the dog, Aria? I know you’re going to do something. I’ve seen that look on your face a hundred times before.”

Aria laughed and started to tidy the papers and medication samples on her desk, a huge, mahogany antique that she had bought at a junk store and refinished just because she loved it. “What look?”

“The one that says you’re determined to save the world.”
