Stone Fox

For a laugh, I googled my nickname. Just to see. Would my blog come up?

No. No, my blog didn't come up.

This is what did:

"Stone Fox is a book about a ten year old boy named Willy who must win the big dogsled race in order to pay the taxes on his grandfather's farm." And so on and so forth.

People, this is not why I chose this nickname. My real name is not Willy, and as a matter of fact, I don't even have one. I also am not Native Indian (or First Nations, or Aboriginal, or please insert whichever term you are most comfortable with), I don't run dogsled, and I will talk to white people. Unless you are one of those white people on (thank you, Snarky Mom).

This is why I chose this nickname: definition for stone fox: One who is so awesome that not only are they foxy, they are also solid.

I didn't get it from first, I actually got it from TV. I was watching The Rockford Files one day and Jim Rockford called a smokin' babe a stone fox and I thought, 'Me like.' (We're not really into complex thoughts up in our Penthouse Suite.)

Let's pause for a moment.

Actor who played Jim Rockford: James Garner
Author of Stone Fox: John Gardiner

Coincidence? I think probably.


  1. "My real name is not Willy, and as a matter of fact, I don't even have one"

    I leave it up to you to decide if I don't even have a willy, or don't even have a real name.

  2. Bahahahahaha! Great name- I totally get it now!


Please, let me know how immensely my writings have changed your life for the better. Remember, one can never be too effusive.
