“I don’t agree. The morning fog makes the graveyard beautiful, soft and sad as a voice humming a lullaby, but I don’t tell her what I think. She’d call me a weirdo.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance

“It’s almost as if all the sleazy men in this country attended the same seminar, where they learned that all American women go to Italy to sleep with them. The teacher at the seminar told them, “You don’t need to learn English to seduce an American woman, you only need to learn one word: ‘bella.’ If you say it, their belts will snap and pants fall from their hips.If I ever find that seminar teacher, I’m going to kick him in the shin.”
Rita Stradling

“I’m tied up, gagged and about to be bludgeoned to death by a lawn ornament. Jeez, that’s depressing.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance
