Foreword from Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge (book 3)
The year was 1971 and the time was like that hour between twilight and full dark, that time when anything is possible. That’s how it was being young, I felt like the whole world was just waiting for me to blossom, to bloom, or to wither and fail. And while I was waiting for something huge to happen . . . life kept on rolling along in fits and starts, never slowing, always moving. Just like Stutter Creek, the one that meandered along beneath Crybaby Bridge.
