“Almost ready, dear.” Joslyn ignored the growling in the corner and focused on her batch of cake pops.
Humming a cheery tune, she picked up a homemade squib (God bless the internet!) and rolled it in her dough. She poked the stick in, then dipped it in melted chocolate and voilà!
Her undead husband’s teeth gnashed as he struggled against the ropes binding him.
She shoved a cake pop into his mouth, then dove behind the counter.
She jumped up to find his exploded head coating the walls.
Grinning, she rolled another cake pop…she had neighbours, after all.
Jodi Jensen, author of time travel romances, a biopunk novella, and over eighty speculative fiction short stories, grew up moving from California, to Massachusetts, and a few other places in between, before finally settling in Utah at the ripe old age of nine. The nomadic life fed her sense of adventure as a child and the wanderlust continues to this day. As a natural born storyteller she has a passion for old cemeteries, historical buildings, things that go bump in the night, and sweeping sagas of days gone by.
