For those who have read my first novel, Out of Play, you’ll be familiar with the little old lady who was part larper, part costume shop clerk. Rosie was such a fun character to write, I brought her back in Flying the Nest. In FTN readers will have the chance to learn more about this fun lady, find out where she lives and what keeps her up at night.
Here’s a quick little cameo for you to enjoy while waiting for the November 28th release:
"What we need is something warm and affectionate for residents to hold.” Something that wouldn’t leave a person feeling so damn alone. Fish could not help with that. They swam about in their cold water, cold blood flowing through their cold veins. Rosie couldn’t name a less emotive animal. “It’s touch everyone at the Eldernest is starving for. You can’t pet a fish.”
“We’ve got the psychologist on Tuesdays if people are feeling lonely, Mrs. Dylan. I highly encourage anyone feeling lonely,” he paused and raised his eyebrows suggestively at Rosie, “to make an appointment with the psychologist.”
Rosie’s cheeks flamed. She picked up her PET-ition and rolled it into a tight bat. She imagined whacking Director Knightly about the ears with it. Or, better yet, she could get one of those sledgehammers from her nephew’s costume shop and smack it down on Knightly’s lollipop head.
