The Mystery of the Prized Egg-Layer
A comedy in modern day, this story is the essence of a NaNoWriMo novel.
Following a lull in her business, a detective, Caren Garner, decides to take on an old woman’s case about her missing prized egg layer. Living a life that had once been exciting before a series of bad luck, Caren feels somehow intrigued with the old woman’s story, even though there was a level of feeling degraded. The mystery unfolds into an absurd adventure that only one person is familiar with, but that would mean that she must ask him a favor. And to do that, she must see him again.
This story is currently being edited by my mother, an expert in chicken business, and who has a good eye for the things that don’t make sense. I hope she has enough red ink in her pen!
