This week's Snippet is from my Toni Collins romantic comedy, Ms. Maxwell and Son (soon to be an ebook). It's the story of divorced mother-to-be Katie Maxwell, a cartoonist, her scruffy musician neighbor, Jack Spangler, and his toilet-flushing cockatoo, Sam. In this scene, Katie and Jack have just met. She's in labor and needs a ride to the hospital in a snowstorm....
Katie nodded. "Right. After all, Mary and Joseph did make it to Bethlehem on a burro," she reminded herself aloud.
"A donkey," Jack corrected, opening the door for her.
She slid inside, then looked up at him. "What?"
"A donkey. They used a donkey," he told her, tossing her overnight case into the back seat.
She shrugged. "An ass is an ass," she said.
