I'm a good kid. That's what everyone says. And it's what everyone expects, too. "Deanna, be a good girl and..." "Mrs. Montgomery, what did you do to deserve such a darling little angel of a daughter?" "Mr. Montgomery, you should be proud of your daughters. They'll go far." Daughters. Plural. With an S. Did I mention I, Deanna Montgomery, have a sister? Her name's Lorraine and though we look identical on the outside, we couldn't be more different on the inside. We could be similar. We used to be. But sometimes, it's almost like she's actually trying to be my opposite on purpose. I guess she thinks I'm supposed to be the good one too.

The first installment of Flora Dennis and the Island of Two Eyes is out now, at Poets Cove! Here's an excerpt (just be forewarned, my "voice" for this story is shamelessly wordy): Uncle Petrie's house was decorated with the spoils of his many travels: feline statuettes from Egypt, a gold mask from Genghis Khan's … Continue reading Flora Dennis and the Island of Two Eyes
At full height, she barely reached Logan's shoulder, which meant she was still pretty short. Her dark hair flowed freely down to her waist. He could also see tiny letters stitched onto the breast pocket of her black jumpsuit. X-23, HYDRA. Logan had his answer now, and he didn't like it one bit.

One of the books I inherited from my grandmother's personal library was The Return of Hyman Kaplan by Leo Rosten. It is the sequel to the infamous Education of Hyman Kaplan, which Rosten penned under the sagely-sounding pseudonym, Leonard Q. Ross. I read them both, out of order, and enjoyed them immensely.
