About the Author:
C.B. Burdette grew up a gypsy at her parents' hands. With a dad in the Air Force, she was able to experience life on the road, soaking up culture. After spending 6 years working as a model, she realized that the industry wasn’t much of what she was looking for in life. More often than not, C.B. felt like Jo Stockton in Funny Face and escaped into the world of film, where work is based on something more than beauty, something she could truly emote through. Between spending 12-hour days on set, and tending to her daughter and cat, C.B. escapes real life through writing fiction.

At fifteen, most guys only have to worry about the style of their shoes or mustering up the courage to talk to the pretty girl sitting across the room. Gabe Perkins isn’t most guys.

Excerpt from Following Zippy:


“Look at those fish,” she said, diverting her attention towards the creek.


“What about them?” I asked her.


“They’re just swimming along. Living. Breathing. I wonder,” she said as she nudged her shoulder against mine, “If they know what purpose they serve.”


“Well, they probably don’t.”


“Why’s that?”


“Because, they’re fish?”


“Don’t think so low of the marine species.”


“Zippy, they’re little minnows. They’re so little they probably only live a few months. Why worry about their place in life.”


“I don’t know. Something of the simplicity of them is nice though, you must admit.” She gleamed ear to ear, “Imagine, if you were a little minnow, swimming down the creek.”


“Oh, crap.”


“What?”


“I have no clue. Do you really think there’s something out there that really cares about this little fish. Or even, you know, something out there that is looking down at us, talking about us like we’re little fish. Just tiny little minnows swimming down a stream, unsure of what fate lies ahead of us?”


“I do.”
