The following is a story that was written in a fever dream of an afternoon when I discovered that one of my cats had gone missing. With great concern about where it went, my mind immediately went to the worst ideas. It wasn't the first cat that I had lost due either to age or negligence to close a door. I was concerned. It was a day or two later that I found the cat sitting on the fence outside of my house and everything went back to normal. Still, in that brief moment of fear, I wrote this short-short story about losing a cat and the emotions that go with it. If you at all feel like you connect with the themes, this story is for you.

BUT DAD NEVER LISTENED TO DANNY BROWN
“What a fantastic creation this book is. A young man who is starting to realize that his earlier years that were spent as a some times troubled some times care youth are over. It is time to make more mature decisions. A great example of today's social urban life styles. I did not want this short story to end. I wanted it to continue to explore this youth's new realizations and life in his new future.”

“A very interesting read, well written. It sounds like a teaser for a novel; I would have liked it to continue through life...he gets a job, marries, lives his life, etc. Maybe there is more to come?”
4/5 stars - Sue Gross
A PLAGIARIZED CHRISTMAS*
"Very interested with the beginning of a fresh new story & character. Somehow the author seems to have a dark & troubled side to his work.. I will continue to follow his publications to see if he can pull himself out of a funk..Overall it takes awhile to get into his stories but I do enjoy what I have read so far." - PART ONE
3/5 stars - rucrazy
"I thought I was in a different story until Max brought the story together by ragging on his sister. I feel it would have been better published all at once, I read the last chapter of #1 to bring it together for me. Overall I enjoyed the outcome of this story. Someone should tell Max to love himself, then it will be fair to say good job." - PART TWO
4/5 stars - rucrazy
A MEETING IN THE BUSHES
Another fast & interesting read from this young author. His outlook on some of subjects that are in our social network today make for very interesting reads. Mr. Willett does make thoughts & ideas come to life in all his books (short stories). I look forward to seeing a new story or perhaps a novel to be released.
4/5 stars - rucrazy
