From the author: Zomb Valley was created specifically for a flash fiction challenge. The challenge was a 1200 word limit about unicorn zombies. Sounds crazy, right? Of course it does but we all need a little challenge from time to time, that’s why I wrote it. Well that and the heckling dares of a fifteen year old.The cover is mixed media and was a gift from the late Tex Henson. The poem 'We're Unicorns' was published in Interior Verse Plus Pose Prose & Poems. I confess this is not my usual forte and exhausts the scope of my unicorn knowledge but it was fun and that should always be at the heart of reading and writing.

Sharecroppers were provided land for farming, shelter for their family, equipment and credit for living expenses until the harvest. The sharecropper provided labor - his only resource. After the harvest they settled up, the landowner received three-fourths of the profit and the sharecropper one fourth. Of course the sharecropper's share went toward paying his credit bill and often he was left owing so he had little choice but to stay on the farm, do it again and try to produce more so he could get out of debt, but debt was always waiting at the end of the row.
