Old Henry’s Dog

Here he is, the dog who has no name of his own, but one of the comforting creatures in Cold Comfort.OH.Dog.

Old Henry’s Dog is fictional, but I love him.

Next, my image of Lucie Bosell (the mean granny in Cold Comfort), the old woman at the center of the group photo below, one of my ancestors. The man in the middle of the back row was my grandfather.

I love those clothes, but I hope my great-grandmother was nicer than she looks.

Cold Comfort, John L. Monk, Kick

More Shameless Self-promotion (and a Kick)

First, so this isn’t totally about meeee, check out John L. Monk’s new cover. The main character of Kick is a good guy who keeps coming backKick1s in a bad guy’s body, with a limited time to put him out of business before the guy kicks him out. The book is well-written, inexpensive, and entertaining, and  you can get it here: http://amzn.to/1952ikf
