Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
I am posting snippets from Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.
Danger is the last thing on Estelle’s mind when she visits the University of Oxenford for a summer course. But, mysterious thefts and shadowy figures spur her into action. With Toby five thousand miles away, Estelle and her winged horse must hunt for the culprits alone. Soon they are embroiled in a mixed bag of aliens and ancient magic. Toby’s unexpected arrival throws her into turmoil and spurs events into a climax.
By popular demand, I’m continuing from a scene with a gargoyle in action.
Estelle is walking to St. Swithin’s College after dark when another student, Betty, sees what she calls a ghoul climbing the church wall. Estelle switches to Starrella and finds her flying horse, Rockette.

Revolving in a semi-circle, Starrella touched a warm neck and moved her hand down the mare’s body. Visible briefly as a ghostly figure, she scrambled onto the broad back, “Let’s fly!”
Thrusting her wings down, Rockette soared toward the church tower. The uncanny man-shape had climbed to the top. On closer inspection, the figure resolved into a grotesque parody of a man, all gray and mottled like weathered stone. Its arms and legs were twice the normal length, a long tongue drooped out of the creature’s oval mouth and a short tail dangled at its back.
Bounding on its stumpy clawed feet, the misshapen creature lunged straight at Starrella and Rockette. Its clawed fingers clutched for them. Starrella shuddered in alarm. How could it perceive them in spite of their invisible nanocoats?
