Scavenger Hunt

T is for Tickle - as in tickle my funny bone.

I love a book that can make me laugh and few are as funny as chicklit.

I could go all fan girl over Marian Keyes. She can make me laugh so hard I snort coffee through my nose. And that's as she faces serious issues.

I'd love to know which writers make you laugh! 

My own books mix murder, comedy, and a woman, Ellison Russell, who must deal with a meddling mother and times that are-a-changing.

A peek at my latest - Clouds in my Coffee

            The mouse, seemingly tired of running around in circles, ran past the footlights and launched himself into the seats.
            The man with the carving knife followed.
            Louder screams ensued. As did the crash of more tables.
            The stage had become the safest place to be. I stayed where I was.
            A man, perhaps a manager, bellowed, “Vic, stop!”
            If Vic was the man with the knife, he either didn’t hear or chose not to listen. He held his blade poised and ready to chop the poor mouse to bits, or, at the very least, cut off its tail with a carving knife.

            Aunt Sis still sat on a table, her foot in a butter dish, her gaze fixed on the man with the knife as if she’d never seen such a sight in her life.
