Inside a small hospital, in a rural Texas town there is a peculiar camaraderie evolving. Clara O’Bromley (fresh out of college) is assigned to ICU, which is no small feat. She has her supervisor, Linda Latrull to thank for that, and for placing her under the direction of a foul-mouthed debutante named Maggie Turner. Maggie is happy to take the young nurse under her wing until she learns that Clara can read more than EKG's. Clara herself is unaware of this ability until she sees into the past; a past Maggie and Linda both have gone to great lengths to hide.

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.

Jamison Baines Weir is born the son of a sharecropper where hard times and sorrow are a way of life. It is a way of life Jamie never questions until famine and malice force him to leave the dying farm and follow a path that leads to murder and mystery.

A Form of Free Slavery?
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.
