A story just out - Loose Ends - for a fun, quick read.
Very pleased to have a short story out. The short story is called Loose Ends and is available to read online here at Imitation Fruit. They have previously published a story of mine called The Lawn Chair. The Lawn Chair was a story written for my Dad even though obviously a work of fiction. It seemed a bit unfair as my mother was the one who always wanted me to write something about her. Loose Ends is the sort of story she would have enjoyed, light and fun with a good streak of humor. Both of these stories veer some distance away from the usual fare of my fiction and it pleased me to be able to write something different than my usual dark and murky tales to honor first my Dad and now my Mom. And yes, it is fiction and no, no one including my Mom was actually these people, but it was inspired by a line she said about bucket lists the day before she died. As ever, would love to hear any thoughts.
