You know, my favorite character in this little tome is Percy. He is mean, nasty, malevolent, foul, and deliciously evil. The imagery worked here for me, because not only could I envision Percy, but I could hear his sinister voice as well. Wonderful story. Can we bring Percy back? 



Author's Response:

Well, Percy was quite a bit of fun to write but he won't be returning for another story. This was a one-shot deal although I'm sure he'd love to return. Thanks, janet0312, for reading and reviewing.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: janet0312 Signed

Excellent. You did a nice job here. There is action and adventure, all the Carwrights are involved, the story was believable as well as the romance, which I'm a sucker for when it comes to Ben Cartwright. All in all, a great story.

You did a nice job with this. If it had been 100 pages longer, it could have made one hellova book. Keep writing and I will keep reading.



Author's Response:

Thank you for the review. And just between the two of us, it's difficult enough garnering readers for a story of this length not to even mention over 100 pages! Glad you liked the story and let me know. : )

Another winner. Love that it's in 1st person mode. Was it fun to write it this way? I had done the same in another fandom and had a ball writing it in 1st person.

 



Author's Response:

Glad you liked it as it is a bit out of the ordinary. And I like to write in first person, especilly Adam. Most of my "mature" stories about Adam are in 1st person.

Another merry mix up with mischief maker Bradley Meredith causing no end of trouble. He was a sap not to get out of town with the goods right away.

Looking forward to more mischief in your future stories.



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading my story and commenting.  Meridith is an intelligent yet totally foolhardy character.   A challenge to write about

Title: Chapter 1: Vow of the Peacock or The Inheritance. Reviewer: janet0312 Signed

Your story reminds me of some of the old mystery films from the 1930’s. Lots of excitement, a long journey, a spooky castle complete with a ghost and nasty relations. The Cartwrights joining together to foil the bad guy. Very exciting.



Author's Response:

Thanks, janet. So glad you enjoyed reading it. I had a lot of fun writing it.
