Here is a little holiday fun that I wrote appearing in the latest issue of Eclectic Voices.

Eclectic Voices

Gift isolated on a white.a poem by Jeff Folschinsky

Part of the December writing challenge: It’s Christmas morning.  As you open your first gift, you are transported to an alternate- universe holiday celebration, in which you are in an extreme position of power.  WRITE ABOUT IT.

It was the day of Christmas, and right down the hall.
There was a big ass present, for me, or for all.

I carefully inspected it with the upmost care.
With hopes I could open it, I might anyway if I dare.

No tags did I find, or markings of any kind.
To tell me whose present in my house I did find.

So I open the wrapping to see what was hid.
To discover its secrets hidden under the lid.

And what to my wondering eyes did I find,
But a bright shiny vortex that just blew my mind.

Not a second did I have to think…

Tales From Little Lump Review

Tales From Little Lump – Night Of The Undead Snow Monkeys

By Jeff Folschinsky

They came in peace, unfortunately the good folks of Little Lump, Texas didn’t get the memo. They’re really embarrassed, especially Gertie who managed to shoot down several of the alien’s space ships with her holy land-to-air rocket launcher. Little did she realize in doing so that she would be unknowingly creating a far bigger danger for Little Lump that could spell doom for them all. To her and everyone else’s disbelief, undead Japanese snow monkeys are slowly approaching the town and now Gertie and Cousin Tommy must fight their way to safety through the undead simian horde who seem to have a real bone to pick with Gertie. With ammunition running low and few places to hide. Gertie will have to use all of her wits to survive the night.

This is the second book in the hilarious Tales From Little Lump series.



When Gertie sees an alien flying saucer, she automatically shoots it down. Unfortunately, it crashes into the snow monkey sanctuary and leaks radioactive fluid. This causes the monkeys to die and then come back to life zombiefied. As Gertie and Cousin Tommy move place to place to hide, the monkeys chase them. Running out of places, Gertie remembers a rumor about an underground shelter, but will it be enough to protect them?

The hilarious personality of Gertie kept me entertained. She was the funniest country hick around, and ornery as could be. With Cousin Tommy being dumb as a doorknob, they made the perfect pair. And every other character fit just as well. I’m looking forward to more of Gertie’s adventures.
