Leann, here. I've decided to yield my blogging time to one of my characters in my Oct book. GUARDED SECRETS.
Hey, everyone. My name’s Penny Burkstrom. My story and my mom’s is out this month. Wow, it’s soooo exciting. To have my story out there for the world to read. It’s way too cool. My classmates—I’m 9 now, almost 10, are jealous. But that’s okay.
Let me say, my story started out real sad. My daddy was killed. He was buying a cold drink at the convenience store down the block. He’d dropped me off after having me for the weekend. My folks got divorced. Dad, he was kinda bad, and he didn’t come and see me often when I was little. Well, he started coming to church with me and mom. I gave his heart to Jesus and wow the difference. After that, we had a lot of fun. Mom and Dad started saying nice things to each other. There was a really neat time when he took me to the local water-park here in Albuquerque. He took some neat, neat pictures.
When he got killed at the store, I cried and cried. Mom helped and told me that Dad was in heaven. Still, I missed him.
Well, when mom and I went to clean out his apartment, that’s when things got real weird. And that’s the beginning of our story.
Of course, Detective Jon Littledeer (I now call him Daddy) came to our rescue.
