MEET ARABELLA BELL-MITCHELL
Arabella has a delightful British accent; her speech sparkles with phrases such as "rabbiting on." And her way with words punches through her writing. Enjoy this little gem she wrote in response to a challenge in class, and see if you can determine what the theme was to be. Do stay tuned -- we'll be sharing some of her other witty and intriguing stories. Arabella is definitely a writer to watch -- she's got novels coming one of these days, and we feel certain they'll gain an enthusiastic audience.
The story below is one of her fanciful ones...we think. It came from the first fantasy idea on the page featuring a selected batch of Ina's Weird Prompts.
We are sad to report that our talented, unique and uplifting friend, Earl Boretz, suffered a fatal heart attack just before Thanksgiving several years ago. His four grown children, Jeanine, Lisa, Mike and Mitchell, told Ina they were surprised to learn some of the things he wrote about his feelings, and pleased he had an opportunity to create stories that please so many. Us, too!
INTRODUCING EARL BORETZ
Earl had more of a penchant for puns than I do, and that's saying something. Have fun as you read the first of his MoTails series below -- entertaining adventures of a pussycat and scads of his wacky siblings.
You'll also see Earl's thoughtful side, as you read the first in a series of vignettes about people in his life, as an extension of our Grief Lifters Un-Workshops.
Enjoy, and look for more of his works in the Stories From The Heart books.
