WIP, "Blood, Spatters" fiction warrior women...

"...Forensic specialist with a penchant for …….shooting, and sometime stunt-woman, Mary Grace Ocampo, ‘The Nun’. Born in the Philippines in 1999. Her family moved out of Quezon City in 2001.   She’s the fifth of five children, three brothers and a sister. Her complexion and body language make her out to appear as the innocence and tranquility of a devout Catholic nun. Even her family thinks that Mary Grace is a nun.

Running together was our form of going out for coffee.  Caytha, a well-educated woman, who had taught in Los Angeles, California, that was way back before we had ever met.  Also she’d had a background in writing/production as she worked for a Bergen County newspaper and for the show Sesame Street which airs on PBS (Public Broadcasting Station).     At the time Caytha, being a working mother of two school-aged children, a house wife, and training the family dogs, Buster and Stewie.   Caytha didn’t dabble.  Stewie, was probably the best trained dog I’d ever encountered in my entire life.   We’d be outside running together, Stewie k
