Crow’s Caw at Nightmoon Creek by Calinda B
Tall, athletic Mercedes McCartney is good at what she does – shaping clay into art. Supporting the downtrodden in the town of Woodland Creek. Oh – and transforming herself into a crow to fly the night sky, the wind in her feathers, soaring over landscapes, vistas and endless wonder as she sources secrets and eavesdrops on people’s folly.
Coming back to Earth sucks…unless you uncover the truth.
Mercedes is horrified when she comes upon the dead body of her best friend, Elena Iris, at her favorite place, Nightmoon Creek. Nearby, stands the very much alive hot guy she’s been pursuing, Lennon Lusk. He’s a suspect. She’s a suspect. Mercedes’ next mission becomes a big one – find out who really killed Elena, even if it means sacrificing her lust for Lusk.
She needs answers, fast. Her best clues come from a cat named Muffin and following her instinct, spying on the townsfolk. She uncovers secrets, lies and plots that fracture the calm appearance Woodland Creek presents. Only insiders know the truth. And insiders want Mercedes McCartney dead.
Get ready to fly into mystery. Buy Crow’s Caw at Nightmoon Creek.

Crow’s Caw at Nightmoon Creek by Calinda B
Goddamn it, there it is again. Torn between the feast before me, and finding out who’s doing what and why, I yield to my impulses, spread my wings and launch into the night realm.
The indigo sky is softly lit by a waxing moon, making way to All Hallows Eve, a favorite holiday. Fabulous, free food is everywhere, dropped by the greasy, snotty hands of little kids tromping through the streets, stuffing their sacks with candy and treats.
The crisp stillness of the night is a balm to my soul as air currents sweep along my wings and body like cool fingers. Other winged ones appear to the left and right of me. I look to see where they’re headed. What? Nightmoon Creek, same as me. Get out of here, I want to shout. That’s my creek. All I can manage is a raspy, rattle-like croak. One of my most cherished places to hang in human form, I don’t like to share it. An oasis of calm, spectacular beauty, it’s usually void of anyone when I’m there, which is how I like it.
I fold my wings and dive-bomb one of the crows to my left.
Caw, he screeches.
I know he means “back the fuck off.”
Caw. I return the cry. He knows I mean “you first, this is my territory.”
We all flutter through the forest, popping through the trees like black balls flung by skilled baseball pitchers, to the bubbling waters slashing the earth in a silvery stream.
A bunch of crows, some friends, surround a body. This can’t be good. It’s a human. Already flies and wasps buzz the body, searching for entry. I scan for Odin, the soul snatcher. He’s nowhere to be seen. I can’t snatch souls, yet. Only an ordained crow can get the job done.
The others hop, flutter, and vocalize, murmuring their delight at the bounty before us. Get away, I want to shout. This isn’t food; it’s one of my kind. It’s a person. I skitter and skip, flutter and squawk, dive and soar, trying to get them off the body so I can see who it is.
A glimpse of white-blond hair flashes in the moonlight from beneath the fall colored bushes at the water’s edge. A purple scarf lay raised through the lingering orange and yellow leaves. A stain of deep red blood on the dark green, wool sweater. I land before her face, peering at the vacant, milky blue eyes, staring at infinity. If I could, I’d gasp. Instead, I let out a garbled croak. I know this person. Can crows cry? I’m about to find out. It’s Elena Iris, my best friend in the whole damn world. And Elena’s dead. There goes my good mood.
