Le Mieux (COMIC STRIP): He may just be the best artist around, yet no one appreciates his natural talent (least of all his human). Well, it’s about time to make everyone take notice! With his unwilling sidekick, Bunny, a rational and unsocial rabbit misidentified by his owner as a female, Le Mieux tries, tries, and tries again to prove to the world that he is a cat worth adoring with talents worth remembering.

Pebbles in a Stream (IN PROGRESS): Twenty-three year old Gayla Masterson escaped to her mother’s country home for relief from the depression of the bustling city only to find that her husband-to-be, Amrid, ran off with her immature yet full-bosomed ex-friend, Cherie Palmer. An enraged Mr. Palmer, both stern farmer and wealthy father to the eloped Cherie, accuses Gayla of being the reason for his daughter’s misbehavior. He demands she find where his daughter is and ‘rescue’ her from the wandering intentions of an indecisive Amrid. With her younger sister staying for the summer and her mother nowhere to be found, Gayla has to deliberately force herself out of love while trying to uncover Amrid’s true intentions and, above all, keep from getting into even deeper trouble with a hot-headed Mr. Palmer and his hatchet men.
