The Actress

I helped my wife publish her book – The Actress on The Book Patch.

The Actress leads a well-ordered life, learning her part and doing it well. But one night strange things begin to happen with a new script and her cat flees to the ledge outside her apartment window. Her rescue attempt leads to an unexpected escapade as one inexplicable event after another unfolds. Will she find her way back to Ordinary Life or is this Real Life, after all? Only one thing is certain: All will be well … No matter what.

And so she became and actress. It was really quite fun because she enjoyed stories and plays and acting. She also liked to sing and dance, and soon she was singing and dancing and acting in plays at school. She was a great success and all her teachers encouraged her and her family was very proud of her. And so she became a famous actress, and was never lonely because she had many fans who loved her. She did not feel lost because she always studied her part very carefully and worked hard to learn it so that she did not forget her lines or songs or dances, and always knew right where she was. But sometimes she still felt frightened and wondered why …
