if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children

Recent Reads

After watching the debate last night and catching up on Fringe (is anyone else watching that? What do we think about it?), I needed to do something that didn’t require too much deep thought, and allowed me to curl up in the armchair in Rexroth’s office under a handmade quilt. Tribute by Nora Roberts fit the bill perfectly. A little bit of mystery, a little bit of romance, some humor, and to really appeal to me: home renovations. Exactly what I was looking for. I always enjoy Roberts’ books, and think she’s got a really great way with secondary characters. In this one, my absolute favorite was the dog, Spock. Who has a little teddy bear he drops at the feet of the main character when she needs a pick me up. He was just too adorable, and completely realized.
Do any of your WIPs feature dogs or cats — or any animals? Are they pets, or are they characters?
