Old People Just Die…

Here’s an excerpt from my novel Sleeping in the Morgue.

Sleeping in the Morgue cover

“So I heard you got a corpse the other day,” Brock said as he drove his large pick-up truck. “Old man? He’ll likely be one of the last, huh?

Paige twiddled her fingers and tried to figure out how to answer the question. “Yeah, some old man. Not sure how he died…he just sort of…”

Keep your cool.

She held her breath and looked at Brock.

“Old people just die. Happens all the time.” He chuckled. “Just not around here much anymore.”

“Yeah, he just died,” Paige said.

That was easy. No need for explanation. He just died. Why didn’t I think of that. It’s not like I killed him or anything. I just…helped him. Yeah. I helped him. There’s nothing wrong with helping people, right?

Hope you enjoyed this brief bit. If you want to read more you can check it out at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.
