Vampires! New Moon


It’s the Harry Potter series for girls and their moms. I’m on book two. It’s not exactly Anne Rice, but it’s entertaining.  I like to read what my students are reading and this seems to be the latest fad. The movie, Twilight, was fun to watch.

I’ve always had a thing for  superheros, especially young Clark Kent in Superman. Now Edward, in the movie ,Twilight, is filling the bill.


“Shoot,” I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.

It all happened very quickly then.

Edward threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table…

I tumbled down to the floor by the piano, with my arms thrown out instinctively to catch my fall, into the jagged shards of glass. I felt the searing, stinging pain that ran from my wrist to the crease inside my elbow.

Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm—into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
