My first love in writing was the short story. I still have (stashed somewhere under my bed) an illustrated short story I wrote in the second grade about a boy and squirrel who could talk. I believe they ended up joining the circus. Which is not so far off from my own life these days. Perhaps I should have been a psychic instead.
There are bits of my life in each story, whether fiction or not. I hope you’ll enjoy them. They were certainly fun to write.
