Today, along with my review of The Wishing Stone, we have an excerpt picked by the author. I hope you enjoy and will consider picking up both books in this great series.
Excerpt 2 – The Wishing Stone
“It was for Kate. We take a digital photo of an infected or damaged area of your body and simply print up a replacement. With a DNA sample, we set it into a protein base… reproducing it multiple times to make a slurry… filling these cylinders. It sprays different layers like ink… printing an exact copy of skin on a biodegradable matrix. The matrix holds it together until the body absorbs it, making for a near perfect match… an instant replacement for cancer damaged skin.”
I was shocked. I knew he had invented a number of apparatus on Kate’s behalf but this… he had done far more in an effort to save her than I was aware.
“That’s incredible,” I said, genuinely impressed with his genius.
“Not incredible enough… at least not in time,” Roger said softly, turning away.
I didn’t know what to say, what to do. My heart went out to him.
“What about Eve?” Roger asked, his voice suddenly strong.
Both Marcie and Digby turned to look at me before nervously turning their eyes to the floor.
Roger turned to them with a confused look on his face.
“Ready, Mr. Harris?” Director Meadows asked, suddenly standing at the door, her hands behind her back.
The room went silent.
“Ready for…?” I asked, looking for Audrey.
“Ben, walk me out,” Audrey’s voice called from beyond the doorway.
My heart sank a little at first. It was real. She was going to leave and I would be here, alone for the next three days.
“Sure. Give me a sec,” I said, going to Roger. “Rog, you okay?”
He shifted uncomfortably, giving a quick glance at Digby.
“We’ll see you out, Sis,” Roger said, slipping a hand to my shoulder.

About Tegon Maus
Tegon Maus was raised pretty much the same as everyone else… devoted mother, strict father and all the imaginary friends he could conjure. Not that he wasn’t friendly, he just wasn’t “people orientated”. Maybe he lived in his head way more than he should have, maybe not. He liked machines more than people, at least he did until I met his wife.
The first thing he can remember writing was for her. For the life of him he can’t remember what it was about… something about dust bunnies under the bed and monsters in my closet. It must have been pretty good because she married him shortly after that. He spent a good number of years chasing other dreams before he got back to writing.
It wasn’t a deliberate conscious thought, it was more of a stepping stone. His wife and himself had joined a dream interpret group and we were encouraged to write down our dreams as they occurred. “Be as detailed as you can,” we were told.
He was thrilled. If there is one thing he enjoys it’s making people believe him and he likes to exaggerate. Not a big exaggeration or an outright lie mind you, just a little step out of sync, just enough so you couldn’t be sure if it were true or not. When he writes, he always write with the effort of “it could happen” very much in mind and nothing, he guarantees you, nothing, makes him happier.
He has consistently placed in the top 3 in 189 writing contest in a variety of genres and has been featured in magazines a couple of times to raise money for Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
