How to make your waitress laugh

by Tim Burdick on 10 July, 2013

Once when my parents visited me in the Czech Republic, I took them to Cesky Krumlov.  While we were there, we stopped for a coffee and cake at a cafe.  of course, I had been living in Prague, for a few months and I wanted to impress my parents with my Czech.

 So, I decided to order in Czech a hot chocolate and a honey cake (medovnik).

What’s in a house?

by Tim Burdick on 08 May, 2013

What's Upstairs? is my first e-book and it has many different characters.  A retired lighthouse keeper, an Irish surfer, an injured child, a crazy cousin, and a house. Well, yes, it is true. Okay, in true literary terms, it isn’t. A house develops the setting.  This one creates a mysterious atmosphere, but like my characters, it has secrets. Why is it broken down with an unrepaired roof?  Why is there no furniture in the downstairs?
As a writer, I left you clues to help you guess what comes next. But, I hope you don't. Surprises are nice because they make you re-read the story to find the details you missed the first time.
