Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at

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:
I think she looks wonderful. You’ve done everything that needed doing for her.” 

The doctor smiled as if his compliment really did please her. “Thank you. We tried. It took a while for her to heal, but with the groundwork you laid we thought we could help her, and we did.” She took a sip of her drink. “Have you decided what you want to do now that you have your freedom?” 

Caleb shrugged. “I don’t know yet; I just got out of prison yesterday.” 

This week: 
The doctor’s eyes widened just a touch. “You must have come straight here.”

“I did. Like I said, it was important to me to see that she was okay.”

Dr. De Luca took a big pull on her soft drink. “The receptionist at the Pine City shelter told me that the director had offered you a job when your sentence was over.”

He nodded. "She did, but..." How could he make her see?


  1. Make her see what? Clearly, whatever reason he has for coming directly to the animal hospital is really important to his character and his goals.

  2. Enjoying this story very much and it moves at a good pace, not too fast, but just right. Terrific snippet and left me - of course! - wondering what he needs to make her 'see'.

  3. How could he make her see?" I can feel the wheels a turnin' #wewriwa

  4. Don't leave us hanging!!! It's really easy to get involved with these characters.

  5. Is he that insecure (and who wouldn't be after prison) or is something else going on? You are making us ask all kinds of questions. Can't wait to read more.

  6. So he has a job offer, but he won't take it. What's more important? I hope he can find the words to tell her!
