Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Heidi Kling – Run to the garage

You do the only logical thing you can do. You dash outside to the garage. That must be where Michael is. His candle burned all the way down and whoever this psycho voice stalker guy is—he’s letting Michael burn.

You have to stop him.

You run, letting your thoughts wander momentarily into the humor zone and think:  hope this a-hole is afraid of zombified French maids, because I’m looking pretty badass. There is no way you’re going to play damsel in distress and let your friends be killed by some nut job.

To complete the ensemble, you grab a weed-wacker from Dad’s tool shed, and light that sucker up. Its roaring zip rings through the night. As you stand there wielding it like whatshisname’s chainsaw, heart throbbing, pulse on fire, you feel energized. Until you hear Michael scream.

“I’m coming!” you yell. “Hang on!”

The garage door is locked. Quickly, you move an egg crate under the small, square window and bash in the glass with the handle of the weed-wacker. Glass shatters like dangerous snow, and you shield your face the best you can. Billows of smoke leak from the window. You heave yourself up.
