Flaming Emotions

When fire destroyed the neighborhood in Colorado where Jenny and Jim Jackson had just moved, no one could have predicted the unusual outcome of the devastation. Sometimes, even the best arranged plans can be turned upside down. This was proven by the horrors that soon plagued the entire Jackson family clan when a past incident came to the forefront. The fire was not the only cause of the family's shock and distress. Hidden secrets and oddities influenced the very core of the family's existence as they struggled to get answers. In the end, can true familial love triumph?





Lucille M. Griswold Poetry Sample:


My husband likes to eat
And cooks too, I can’t deny
And he often boasts and brags
That he’s a better cook than I

To me that’s really quite ok
I was tired of cooking anyway
With diet restrictions it became such a bore
I could care less if I never cooked anymore

Well, he would cook and I would clean
We made this easy pact
It was working pretty well
Except for this very simple fact

He stirs and cuts and flips and flops
Oh Joy and fiddle di dee
Where I would only use one pot
My Lord he’s using three
