Short Story Collection

In unstable times, the most prized treasures could be little more than brief escapes from our relentless reality. Readers ache equally for adventure and solace. These can be found here, in several career-spanning stories reflecting the author’s lifetime of experiences and imagination. Come explore suburbia’s eccentricities, as a pee-wee softball player invites mayhem in the stands, and the flip side of hate turns up when a little girl asks her racist attacker a single killer question. One story pays loving tribute to Thurber’s Walter Mitty by sharing the part he left out. Another explores a not-too-distant future when commonplace genetic surgery alters the core qualities of humanity. Each story glints like a precious stone embedded in a dimly lit path, enticing the reader to wander toward yet another fascinating destination.
