The difference between velociraptors and kittens

This past Christmas, Canelo did not knock over our Christmas tree once. (I know, shocking right? What sort of self-respecting cat is he?)

However, he did chew through the cord for our lights. The Seven-Year-Old refused to believe it.

Daddyo: “I saw it. It was definitely him. Remember, he is a velociraptor with an outsided sense of entitlement.”

The Seven-Year-Old: “Don’t be silly. Velociraptors don’t have entitlement.”

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. 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), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
