Meet the Author

Lonna Cunningham lives on a very small farm in rural Alberta where she and her family raise sheep, chickens and veggies, accompanied by a Dexter cow, several dogs and a fluctuating number of cats. You can read Lonna’s musings about life on the farm, knitting, gardening and a variety of other somewhat random subjects on her website at blog.applejackcreek.com.


Lonna rarely goes anywhere without a knitting project in hand and once sat at the side of the road after a car accident working on a sock while waiting for the police to arrive. She is engaged in an ongoing effort to balance the size of the fibre stash in such a way as to ensure that there is always enough on hand to allow for the immediate implementation of suddenly-inspired projects while at the same time attempting to stay within the available storage space. In addition to knitting, Lonna also enjoys spinning, particularly on her beloved century-old Canadian Production Wheel, and she can often be found online in the Ravelry or Homesteading Today forums, where she is known as Frazzlehead.


The onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder brought Lonna’s twenty-year career in Information Technology to a rather unexpected end, and she is now exploring other ways in which she can contribute to the family’s financial stability (and pay for yarn).

    Why Not

    I sit in the park. Alone. I cant help but cry. Although it feels good. As if rain had left and a rainbow came. I here a pair of feet funning to me. They say me name,"Jesslyn! Jesslyn where are you!!!" They come arounf the corner and see me. "Get away Cruse. Im dome with you" I turn my head. "No please dont say that. I-Im sorry." "Sorry for what Cruse. For me being a freak or sory that you know me?" I begin to stand up. He grabs my wrist. "Im sorry that i never knew this and im sprry for not neing a good friend. So when did you learn you could do that?" I shoot him a look. "What. You mean this?" I snap my fingers and tree roots push him down. He grunts. "Yeah. That." I cross my arms. Im done. Im leaving." Suddenly soeones lips crash into mine. Cruse. He pulls back and holds me face with his hands. "Why? Whyd you kiss me?" He smiles."Why not?" Now i cant help but smile to. "Look I know we have had our secrets. Some bigger than others but you are rare. And I..." I look at him. "And I what?" "And i love you." My eyes start to tear. I never thought hed love me. Thats all i wanted from him. Even though i control the Earth almost he loves me. He loves a freak.-Courtney

    The Beauty of Trust

    "Rainbow Dash, stop! You're dragging me through mud!" Rarity said, shaking off her fluttery pink dress. Rainbow Dash smirked. "Your dress is too heavy! We need to get into the cave!" Rarity looked down at her dress. The hem of the long cape was lined with real crystals, and there was one large, heart-shaped crystal on the neck. Rarity took off the cape and jewel reluctantly. "Rainbow Dash, do you think humans are real?" Rainbow Dash's eyes grew large with daring. "No, but that would be AWESOME to see one!" Rarity shook her head sadly. "Only a filly would want to meet something as scary as humans! You remember the dogs that we met? I heard humans own dogs!" Rainbow Dash frowned momentarily, but the frown turned quickly to a smile. "Humans are as tough as me! Cool!" They were nearing the cave. Rarity looked around the cave. It was dimming out, and the cave was dark at the corners. Rarity felt like crying. She was acting like a fearful filly while chasing after the Princesses amulet. Rainbow Dash followed up when they heard footsteps in the corner of the cave. Rainbow Dash landed on her hooves. Rarity hid behind her. "A... a human?" She whimpered. Rarity was right. The human was very scary too. Lights flickered. Two beds were sitting against the wall. The human was smiling, blood dribbling out of his mouth. He was covered in blood, never blinking, and he was holding a knife. "Lay down on the beds, or I'll kill you early," he rasped. Rarity looked around scaredly. Rainbow Dash stared in shock. He raised his knife in the air. "Rarity... I have a plan to kill him before-" Rainbow Dash said. Rarity interrupted, "No, Rainbow Dash. He'll kill us first!" "Trust me." "I'm not going to trust you." "Go to sleep," the human said. Rarity felt a sharp pain in her back. She looked down at her back. Her beautiful coat was spattered with blood. "Oh no you don't," a mares voice came from the shadows. It was another human, but not as creepy. She had long black hair. Her eyes were closed, and she was wearing blue eye shadow. She was hitting him with her bare fists. He looked pretty weak. After one more hit, he was dead. The girl turned to Rarity and Rainbow Dash. "Every time. I don't know what that was, but it wasn't my Jeffrey. By the way, my name is Jane. Here you go." Jane's hand stretched out and opened. Resting in the palm of her hand was the rainbow shimmery amulet. Rainbow Dash took it with pride. "I'll go take this to Her Royal Highness. You go back to your fashion workshop and work on that dress." Rainbow Dash flew off. BACK AT THE WORKSHOP... Rarity looked at her needle and thread. Her hooves were still drenched in blood. If only I'd trusted Rainbow Dash, she thought, I wouldn't be covered in blood and dirt. If only... THE END!~sunkit
