So many baby TURKEY!!!! Oh they are so cute. The turkey that live by city hall have a few new additions to the flock. I found this a bit odd. I don’t know a whole lot about turkey, but I would think the babies would hatch in the Spring, not in the Fall. They are adorable and mamma is doing a great job guiding them around the town. She is not part of the generation of Turkey that used the sidewalk, so as drivers we all have to keep a sharp eye out for them. Little guys just popped out of nowhere to cross the street. They live by a retirement village, so everyone drives 35 in that area anyway. Right across from city hall and the church is the Veronda-Falletti Ranch. The word ranch makes it sound like a big piece of land. It’s actually only a few acres. I mention them because there is a constant rotation of farm animal going through the farm. Right now they have baby pigs. BEYOND CUTE. So everyday when I drive the baby bassets to school, I see baby pigs and turkey. The cuteness overload is a delight! It’s the best way to start the day.

Winston’s biggest fear had always been the school bully. Turns out, waking up to being a half-alien freak was worse.

Why? Oh, maybe the bruises that glow neon blue. Or the even higher odds of being rejected by his dream girl. Or, best of all, the sudden attention from gun-toting goons in dark suits.

Winston’s mom thinks some junk left by Winston’s long-missing father in a safe deposit box might make things better. Not likely.

It’s going to take more than alien artifacts and a plastic baggie of clues to stop a mysterious government organization. It might take Winston giving up everything he’s ever wanted. And everyone.

Armed only with his wits, his snarky best friend, and a few wicked new abilities, Winston has to stay one step ahead of a lunatic and dive into the past. Otherwise, there won’t be a future.

Winston Chase and the Alpha Machine is book 1 in a completed trilogy packed with electrifying fun and adventure.

Taking Matters Into Her Own Hands
