But doesn’t “The Los Angeles Angels” ALSO translate to “Los Los Angeles Angeles”?
You know what’s awesome? A donkey lamb taxi. That sounds like a band name. Hey, when’s the next Donkey Lamb Taxi show?
When sheep herders in the hills of Lombardy, Italy need to move their flocks toward better grazing land, the wee lambs get a little help keeping up with their woolly family. Helpful donkeys are fitted with sets of special lamb-sized pouches. It’s ridiculously cute and cozy mass transit in the form of live taxis who are content to graze right along side the sheep.
Note to self: It’s okay to not be interesting, charming, and funny 24/7 people aren’t going to hate you cause you made one joke they didn’t get or you replied to something without being witty or cute about it
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.

It’s an oppressively hot and sticky morning in May when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp — the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn’t return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp’s done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance — and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.
This seems a good time to mention the blurbs I’ve received for BEWARE THE WILD. Or you could just read them.
“Unique, haunting, and filled with characters who steal your heart, you’ll be just as intrigued by the rural, small-town world that Parker builds as you will by the magic she weaves in the dark of the wild.” — International Bestselling Author Josephine Angelini
“Brimming with mystery, passion, and dark enchantments, BEWARE THE WILD is Southern Gothic at its most beguiling.” — Sonia Gensler, author of The Revenant and The Dark Between
“This book, much like its dark and enticing swamp, seeps into your soul. And that is a very, very good thing.” — Tara Hudson, author of the HEREAFTER series
“Natalie Parker speaks Southern Gothic fluently, from the haunting rhythm of her language to the easy cadence of her dialogue. I dare you to turn the page: the Louisiana swamp will eat you alive.” — Myra McEntire, author of the HOURGLASS series
“Creepily delicious swamp magic. I loved BEWARE THE WILD something wicked.” — International Bestselling Author, Amy Plum
