Red





Red is the name of a chicken who figured out how to make the hoot and call

of coyotes. You may not live where there are predatory animals that haunt but

Red taught Dixie a hen to howl with him imitating the meanest coyote pack.

She sings at dawn/ night before she falls to chicken coma, yes, as if she guzzled

two bottles of Merlot wine. Red is a brave color ~ now go make history

Majenta Hello, Caroline! Friend Request Accepted, thanks for Requesting! Congratulations on your books.
Question: Why is "Cincinnati" misspelled in your information?
I hope you've had a productive week and will have an even better one ahead! Happy writing, reading, and everything else. Blessings!

Best wishes from Majenta


Caroline Gerardo I love Goodreads! It is fun to see what everyone is reading. I also enjoy seeing friends with similar books, then looking at what else they recommend or read. I'm always reading. Sometimes 18-20 books a month.

Harlequin Books Hello Caroline, it is a pleasure to meet you.

Jesse Hanson Dear Caroline,
Thanks much for including me among your Goodreads friends. It looks like your working very hard as a writer and I wish you much success.
Should you find the time and if you have an interest in spirituality, I would ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my life.
Namaste, jesse


Cheryl Landmark Thanks for the friend request, Caroline.
