A Collection of Six Short Stories

Windows, my collection of six short stories, is now available on Kindle:

Daniele Serra, a fantastic artist, did the cover for me and I love it. Thanks, Daniele.

The stories are:

Puddles:

With a failing marriage, a pre-teen son, and a mother with Alzheimer’s, Karen struggles with anger and helplessness. Then a stray dog enters her life.

A Southerner Moves to Minnesota:

When my husband suggested moving from Denver to a northern Minnesota suburb, I wasn’t sure. Forty below zero? But sometimes life can be an adventure worth exploring, frozen lakes and all.

Am I Wife or Daughter?

Based on my struggle with my mother’s care, I wrote about Carol, who agonizes over the dilemma of choosing between her mother and her husband. Then, when a life most precious is endangered, she realizes there are no choices at all.

Thoughts of Yesterday:

A mother whose grown son lives in a different state remembers his childhood on his birthday.

My Hapless Husband:

When your husband retires after twenty-four years of marriage, you expect a chance to renew your romance. Instead, his early-morning cheerfulness was too much to bear. The solution? Murder.

The Face on the Sketchpad:

As a sketch artist for law enforcement agencies along the Front Range of the Rockies, Dana MacFarland had seen her share of bruised flesh. To prepare for her work with the teenage victim of a violent crime, she’d studied the police file and had visited a crisis center to get a feel for working with battered women. She thought she was prepared. But nothing prepared her for Cassy Walker.

Stop by and take a look. If you read them, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
