Norma is Coming Quickly

Perfectly Tornbook cover

As I’m writing my new book, I have come to the realization that my humor is somewhat strange. I find myself laughing and giggling while I write. Like seriously, in hysterics to the point my dog starts barking at me and my kids look at me like I’m insane.
I take a random situation one that’s either invented in the depths of my ridiculous brain, or one that I have witnessed, then I exaggerate it to a point of no return. Is whatever I’m writing possible? Absofreakinglutely, which is hilarious. I am the type of person these things could, or have, happened to. The likelihood of them happening to one person is slim. I think that’s what makes it so funny.
I’ve also noticed, I’m not politically correct. We are living in a very politically correct society and this is not how I choose to write. Some of my things can feel hurtful or insulting, but no worries because the underdog always, and I mean ALWAYS, wins! So, if my work seems a little harsh- for example calling people the “local crazies” it is also very endearing, and they will end up positively being a hero. I don’t like hate, so I don’t accept it.
Anyway, as the new book is being written, I think of Norma Nudle and her quirky adventures and all I can say is that the next book is introducing a horse to the scene. As I write about said horse, you can envision my laughter ricocheting through my house while my kids are taking peeks over my shoulder to see what on earth I think is so funny.
The truth is, I’m excited. This final book of Norma and Evan is pure joy.
