Check out this mini-story I made as a slideshow

This blog is, as from today (12 Dec. 2009), a tribute to James Hadley Chase, who wrote with great precision zillions of novels set in the USA , without (hardly)ever having set foot in it. I hope I can measure up to him -even if only just a bit.


After some painstaking and futile attempts I've realised that Chase must have been a much more conscientious man when it came to geographical accuracy (or just plainly much more into maps than I am). So, while still dedicated to him, I hope readers will forgive -and perhaps enjoy- some creative licence on my part...

Curious kitty

Curious kitty decided to explore other forms of life so off he trotted to the forest (after having lived with horses for a while) and found a cute adoptive family. Of course, he took all the necessary precautions not to upset the ecosystem of the village...

A stop on the road

DISAPPOINTMENT spelled the black dripping letters in the middle of the road; she stopped and saw the thick mist surrounding them.

She had not foreseen this. When she'd set out on her journey, she'd thought of going forward, sideways, even backwards if things went wrong...but never a stop. And now, what was she to do? She could very well go back home except.. except the mist was spreading and beginning to cover every space around her. It was like being in the centre of a quiet, oh so quiet, tornado.

A dark cloud loomed over her head and followed her wherever she went...maybe the only way was to cross those great big letters? OK, but how? And would she find something, anything, known to her on the other side? Would she still be herself? She wasn't being much of herself in that thick mist, that was for sure.

A stop on the road. That's what this was. Uncertainty was carved in the looming cloud.

They say every journey starts with a step...

Today I was able to walk once round the block. Maybe tomorrow, with some help, I'll be able to walk twice :-)
