Frog Prince: A Twisted Fairy Tale

Hi Everyone,

I (Matt) recently stumbled upon the site Scribd and figured I would give it a go. I am selling a short story. It's very short, but very entertaining, if I do say so myself. :)

I wrote this story many years ago. I haven't made extensive edits to the story, only to the grammar. You can see a preview on the sidebar of this blog, or through the link below:

You can read the first two pages of it in the preview. See if you like it.

I'm currently working on a trilogy for young adults. I have about 100 pages left in order to finish the first book, which shouldn't take too long. Then I will refine & rewrite it, polishing it until it's ready for publishers.

I'll post updates as they happen. I'll start putting samples up in a short while. Keep your fingers crossed for me as well! This has been a dream of mine for many years. I'm finally getting up the courage to show other people my writing. Hopefully it's good enough in a few years to get me somewhere. For now, this will do.

4th of July

For the forth we went to Panguitch for Matt's family reunion. We took Zach & Aubrey. We had a lot of fun, We left Saturday morning at 5 am and came back Sunday around 10 am so it was was a really fast trip but we packed a ton of fun in that short time frame. We got there right before the parade. The parade is always fun it is a kid parade all the kids of the town decorate their bikes and ride up and down main street.It is really cute. The family reunion was rained out. when we got up there we had to sit in our car for about 20 minutes for the rain to stop, it only stopped for a little while and started again so we went back to the hotel.I was excited to get to see my father in law play his accordion. Matt and Dave even got up and sang with their dad. It was the first time in 2 years I had seen him play. I really missed it when he did not live here. We watched fireworks that night they were really good. and then we went and roasted marshmallows. It is always good to catch up with everyone we do not see very often. I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4Th.

Happy Birthday Mollie

Mollie Turned ONE. She is so cute. We went to her party at a splash park. It was so much fun. We played in the water and then on the playground.(Sometimes I think the adults have more fun than the kids)
Mollie fractured her leg a few days before so she just sat and watched the fun, but she loved her cake. When it got dark we did fireworks. Kim did a 4th of July Theme. Thanks for the fun night.
