Overview

John Smith had had it with his humdrum life. His marriage was stale, his job sucked, and he was still wearing the same eyeglasses that he had worn during the Regan administration. He craved excitement, so drastic changes were in order. To begin what he’d come to think of as “the new and exciting life of John Smith”, he got a divorce, quit his job … and got shot. It turned out that getting shot wasn’t so much exciting as it was scary and painful, so John decided to tone down his quest for excitement. He would simply move up north to enjoy a peaceful change of pace. It wasn’t to be. Between finding dead bodies beneath the deck of his new home, refereeing the senior-citizen-love-triangle of the century, and dealing with the ozone-destroying flatulence of his cat, he had more excitement than a dull guy could handle. Given the murder and mayhem surrounding him, he was beginning to suspect that the biggest excitement of his life going to be his own death.

Meet the Author

Shawn MacDonald (that would be me) was born on July 27, 1963 in Wheaton, Minnesota. For those of you with poor math skills, that makes me 29 years old. I am 29 years old today, and in five years I will still be 29 years old. If you find my math skills debatable, I will warn you that I am menopausal and cranky. Don't argue with me.
Shawn (yes, I am back to third person) is a waitress/manager by day, and a writer by night. She has had many short, humorous pieces published in various magazines, and currently has several humorous fiction works available as ebooks. If, in searching for her works, you come across "The Darkness Within", be warned that that particular work was published in 1992, during Shawn's I-want-to-be-the-next-VC Andrews phase. It is NOT a funny book.
Shawn currently lives in the booming metropolis of Northwood, New Hampshire. She is the mother of three amazing daughters, and several equally amazing grand-pets. If anyone is wondering why none of those amazing daughters have not provided Shawn with a grandCHILD, you are not alone. Ahem.
So buy or borrow an ebook today! They are inexpensive and they are funny. In other words - they are a cheap laugh!
