SPIDERS AND THRUMMING AND STRANGE BODY CHANGES, OH MY!

Starting today, KEYHOLE CONVERSATIONS will feature a new six-week series on authors reading a favorite scene from their book.

Our first award-winning writer,  Hazel Hart, is an author of many talents who has  five published books to her credit. She has selected a scene from Dark Side of the Rainbow, a chilling collection of  short stories she co-authored with B. J. Myrick.

The story, Lady in the Dark, is about a woman  who searches for answers to the strange changes within her body after an attack by a gigantic five-foot spider and uncovers covert government research gone wrong.

SECRETS ABOUT SPIDERS YOU NEVER WANTED TO KNOW

    1.   Most spiders are very near sighted.

    2.  Spider babies come from eggs. The female lays up   to 300 eggs that are encased in a silk sac. Young spiders can regenerate a lost leg.  Adults can’t.

   3.   Spiders make a new web each day because the old one gets dirty. They roll the old web into a ball and eat it.

4.  A jumping spider can jump up to twenty-five times its own body length.

5.  Mating is dangerous for the male spider, who performs ritualistic dancing to hypnotize the female before fertilization to avoid being eaten by her.

    I hate spiders and snakes. Nasty creatures. Thank you for giving us a peek into the Dark Side of the Rainbow. Makes you want to learn more!

    Thank you for your comment. It’s a horrific flight of imagination that could scare the weak of heart. I’m not a fan of spiders or snakes, either. Hopefully, my new historical novel will be a bit more inspiring.
