I’ve been asked if I will write another book to follow SPUNKY GRANDMAS….And Other Amusing Characters. My answer is, “I may have already written it. “
I’ve written about 200 sonnets. ( Fun fact: Shakespeare only wrote 154. ) About 100 are included in SPUNKY GRANDMAS, so there are about 100 more laying around ready to go into another book. All look for humor in human behavior and in the world in which we live.
What’s distinctive about the SPUNKY GRANDMAS sonnets is that nearly all have a narrator who tells a story with one or more characters and a plot that gets resolved. While there are similar stories among the rest, many tend to be observations and comments, not in story form. For example, there’s sonnet entitled “Coffee Snobs” and one called “Supermarket Tabloids.” Both are mildly satiric commentaries.
Another entitled “In Praise of Duct Tape” is posted on the Favorites page of this website.
