Guest Post ~ Take The Monkey And Run by Laura Morrigan


I’m a word nerd. I admit it.

I keep lists.

So, once again, here are some of my favorite words and why I love them.

I like words that are fun to say. Give these a try.

scintilla– a spark or very small thing

susurrous- whispering, hissing

evanescent- vanishing quickly

nemesis- an unbeatable opponent; a source of harm or ruin

discombobulate- confuse, upset

onomatopoeia- (obviously) words that imitate a sound


Words about happy stuff make me happy.

gambol– leaping or skipping joyfully

halcyon– happy, carefree

ebullience– bubbling enthusiasm

auspicious- favorable

exultant- triumphantly happy


I also have a love for nouns that end in ”ing”

Not just thing, ring, wing, etc but…

nameling– having the same name (usually people)

gloaming– twilight

foundling– an abandoned child discovered and cared for by others


So… what are your favorites?

Grace Wilde must use her psychic abilities to track down a pesky primate in the latest Call of the Wilde Mystery.

Grace Wilde is excited to head to New Orleans for her first “real” case as an animal telepath. She intends to help a woman find her missing sister, but when she attempts to communicate with her client’s cat, Coco, Grace gets distracted by the presence of a much wilder animal.
Coco confirms that a mysterious monkey has been swinging around the Big Easy. Grace thinks she might be able to help corral the cheeky Capuchin in addition to solving her case. But things get complicated when she receives a cryptic warning that her client isn’t what she seems. Now it’s up to Grace to separate the truth from the monkey business…

lauraSpending the first years of her life on a Costa Rican coffee farm blessed Laura Morrigan with a fertile imagination and a love for all things wild.

Later she became a volunteer at a local zoo, helping out with everything from “waste management” to teaching an elephant how to paint. Drawing from her years of experience with both wild and domestic animals and her passion for detective novels, Laura created the Call of the Wilde series. She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many cats, loves the Blue Angels, wearing flip flops in November, and thunderstorms.
