My short story “The Stereoscope” will soon appear in the upcoming anthology “Tales of Mystery, Suspense and Terror”. For my faithful readers, here is just a small, savory bit for you, to whet the appetite.

There were many of him in Africa, almost every photo displaying his skill as hunter. Elephants, wildebeest, all sorts of horned antelope, two spotted leopards and three massive lions. He sat leaning his back against one, laughing, both fists clutching hanks of its shaggy mane. He was looking right into the camera, showing his teeth and I thought he looked like a madman.

I think you will enjoy my latest dark tale, and I want you to share with me what you think. I love hearing from you! The book comes out in October, so hurry over to Chuffed Buff Books to reserve your copy now! I’m so pleased to be included  in such a twisted nest of horror. But then, I do feel so at home.

Until we speak again, my dears. Bon nuit!

Katzenjammer (The Yowling of Cats)

“Halloween Cat” (detail) Kathy Ferrell 2013


I wanted to share a piece that I may not get completed for Halloween. Sigh. I have a lot on my plate, but I have to prioritize. Paid work comes first, bottom line. So here’s just a detail of one I’ve had on the drawing board for a while. I won’t tell what has him so frightened. Wait and see!

I gave my post that title because I love that word. There may be some of you out there who are familiar with an old comic strip called “The Katzenjammer Kids” about two little German boys who caused nothing but headaches for Mama and “The Captain”. They were essentially horrible, but I found them amusing. I once looked up that word, and, as I recall, it translates literally to “the yowling of cats”. Perhaps this Halloween we will all hear katzenjammer in the alley ways. Be safe, BE KIND TO ANIMALS, and have fun this Halloween!
