Tales from Spring Break Round Three, Part Four

"Hey, you want water too?"

Mommyo, after The Five-Year-Old has brought her a glass of water unasked: “How did you know I wanted water just then?”

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
