Richard Sherlock would rather be on the receiving end of a wealthy charity instead of in the middle of investigating the missing millions from one wealthy donor, but, as usual, he has no choice. The last thing Richmond Insurance wants to do is pay out on a six-million-dollar claim. Sherlock is thrown knee-deep into oodles of free money, but can’t seem to pick up a dime for himself. Complicating matters are cutthroat, corporate conniving, his daughter dating, a new career calling, a botched burglary, Tiffany’s terrible tryst, and how to use used food. In the end, charity case Sherlock figures out the charity case.

Helicopter parent Kelly Birkby’s overactive imagination has her constantly on guard against threats to her young family —killer bees, the impending tsunami, roaming rabid dogs. But when her wallet is stolen and her beloved Southern California beach town becomes the target of an actual crime spree, she takes it upon herself to fight back by enlisting the most formidable force she knows: the moms of the town. Armed with lightening quick skills honed by the demands of motherhood, each monthly night out for Kelly and her friends achieves a small victory. Emboldened, the moms step up their game and quickly learn it’s one thing to bring down graffiti thugs and petty thieves, yet another to take on the local drug dealers who rule the pier, and they soon find they are in over their heads. Rollicking, warm, funny and just a little bit dark Mom’s Night Out is a story of friendship, love and the lengths people go to in order to protect their home and children.

Description:

A father watches his daughters lovingly care for a squirmy gang of caterpillars. When they morph into butterflies, the girls witness the true meaning of life... unfortunately. A short story by Scott Semegran.The Butterfly Effect is from the book MODICUM, a collection of short stories, musings, and cartoons by writer / cartoonist Scott Semegran. The book explores such themes as suicide, parenting, religion, masculinity, the apocalypse, and, most importantly, erections. It’s guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and pee your pants (hopefully, not at the same time). Praise for MODICUM:"Funny, sweet, dark, and sad, Scott Semegran's comics and short stories create a wholly convincing world of love, loss, and fear. His light touch with heavy subjects is a gift, and his forays into silliness are a delight. I can't tell if his kids should read it as soon as possible, or never." - Emily Flake, cartoonist and author of LuLu Eightball"Hilarious, poignant, twisted... and those are just the stories. Scott Semegran's cartoons bring an added one-two visceral punch to a powerful collection of work." - Davy Rothbart, author of The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas and publisher of FOUND Magazine
