Excerpt from Alleys 2:

“I’ll head back out before close up.” Don tossed over his shoulder while heading for the group of men who routinely played poker with Peanut. There was a chorus of ‘Hey Dons’ as he approached. “Hey guys; what are we playing for tonight?”

“Cigarettes; didn’t make much today on account o’ the rain. Jody’s cleaning us out.” Marvin engaged him in a complicated handshake then went back to concentrating on his hand. “Rain keeps everyone’s windows clean and closed. How ‘bout you?”

“I made a lil bit.” Don stood back with his arms crossed over his chest. Jody smiled wide and pushed a chair out with his foot as an invitation to join; Don grinned but shook his head. “My mama didn’t raise a fool Jody.” The guys erupted into raucous laughter.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
