Populated with most of my fictional characters, especially the six grandchildren (ages 9 - 18) and two grandparents (Rosetta and Arturo), this is nevertheless, a departure from my usual format.

Rather than a strict linear story format from one viewpoint, I have separated segments that focus on differing characters. Much like a lot of modern thrillers, and the format for TV situation comedy shows. But, in the familiar family good-hearted atmosphere of my previous fiction.

There's no thriller thread here. That's coming soon, with the return of Sam (Samantha). She was introduced in "Dirty Sixth Street, Austin," where she helped the six children after someone stole Zilker's camera. He's the youngest of the six.

The story technique does, I believe, add a sparkle I enjoy and mixes well with the story.
