With a new flash fiction piece coming to DanLeicht.com tomorrow featuring Charles Splints I thought today would be a good day to look back at some of the poetry featuring the character. In his poetry Splints solves case just as he does in the prose stories, but they seem to go by a lot quicker… something in the coffee?
Below are a few of the poems
Something I tried later on was the notion of “What if Splints acted like this when he was a kid?” granted a lot of the themes aren’t quite the same, but his basic personality still comes off in the poems where he’s a young school kid taking on the important cases of elementary children.
A young seven-year-old Charles (don’t call him Charlie) Splints takes on a case during recess in Gumshoe
The Bubblegum Bandit – Another case for young Charles (don’t call him Charlie) Splints
Hear about Charles as The Hall Monitor
What happens when Charles is sent to the Principal’s Office?
