Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!
Sorry, I skipped last week, partly due to the hurricane, but mostly due to poor internet. October means Halloween and skeletons sprouting from lawns in our neighborhood of Atlanta. Thankfully, the weather is cooler.
I’m running snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series.
Background: After Estelle joined their table, Toby, the leader of the Jags gang and the Secret Supers, explained that Gecko’s baby sister is missing. The only clue is the school bus driver’s description of a woman who met the girl. This weekend, we learn a little more about the supers.

Toby spoke the final line: He looked at the Jags; “Ideas, anyone else?”
Please excuse my misuse of semicolons to fit.
Ice shifted position to face Toby. Brushing a loose strand of platinum blonde hair behind her ear, she said, “I’m in touch with a group that shelters abused women and children. I’ll ask if they’ve seen this girl.”
“She’s not abused,” Gecko objected.
“Okay, we believe you,” Toby said; “We’ve got to start somewhere.”
Gecko said, “Fricka’s been searching every day since Juliana was lost.”
Toby drawled, “Hawk’s a good hunter, but, she can’t fly into buildings, or talk to people. We can.” He caught Estelle’s gaze, and added, “Discreetly, of course. Not dressed as Supers.”
You can read about Estelle, Toby and the other Supers in my Secret Supers books. http://www.auroraspringer.org/p/secret-supers.html
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.
