A Disturbing Presence
By Joy Lee Rutter

A Disturbing Presence offers readers a delightful combination of horror, family history and dark secrets, written with a splash of humor; a new twist of imagination and talented writing for a gripping jump into the world of embalming and taxidermy.
Welcome to the life of eccentric Eric McDuggal, dying of terminal cancer. He’s an animal lover but keeps his wife of seven years, Leanna, at arm’s length. He meets with the local taxidermist, Ed Simon, with a bizarre request. He wants to be preserved. Join in Leanna’s dismay and ride a paranormal, emotional roller coaster as she discovers secrets of his past and new attractions in the present, all with her deceased, ‘stuffed’ husband sitting there in the living room.
A well written paranormal saga of intrigue and sometimes plain weirdness, this book is a true pleasure to read. The author writes in a flowing, easy manner that immediately captures the reader’s interest. A serious and bright future is in store for more of the same! A “do-not-miss” for reader’s interested in the horror genre.

Modern technology requires balance. What would we do without people like our parents to remind us to slow down and maybe settle in a chair to read. Very interesting article. Reminds me of my mom and her email-not.

I'll be 74 next month, so this might strike a little close to home. Fortunately, I have been messing with computers for 25 years, since I first computerized the office at my radio stations. My own father died in 1997 at the age of 90. Even though he was an accountant he would have nothing to do with them. Every Saturday he'd call all four of us "children" (on the telephone, land line) and pass along the family news. I still miss him, and those calls.
Obviously, I enjoyed your account. And your subject matter is one that resonates with millions of Boomers today...and even with some of us old guys.

Thank you so much. About six months before my Mother passed away in 2001, she became the owner of a PC. Like you, from that moment on, my life changed drastically, to say the least. Only it was a good thing that I lived on moments away from her..but I spent all of them going back and forth.
She called me one morning around 4:00 am and when I sleepily answered the phone...she all but yelled in the reciever, "What did you do with that Giant E!" Ofcourse she was looking for the Explorer Icon, but when one is asleep..they tend to be a bit unfocused on life...
I immediately got out of bed, put on my clothes, trekked through the rain...and made her believe I was happy to help her find her Giant E!
I sure wish I could help her today.
