A Chance to Tell Ten Stories

· Every Word Rise, LLC

About this ebook

These ten stories have people on a journey they did not plan to take. Their destination is unknown until they arrive. When lost, home can be a place of rest with no need to go further.

These stories tell about sisters reuniting at their grandpapa’s funeral, a dad becoming a woman, a lonely homeowners association president, Betsy who likes shiny light bulbs, and Donald confronting co-workers and teenage daughters. There is also Gwen searching her past for help after a rape, a comedian avoiding colors, a dying Tommy wanting God’s forgiveness, a blind Peter who meets Mary with cancer, and a couple married for years who perform on a high school stage.

About the author

I grew up on a dairy farm in Spotsylvania, Virginia and ended up commuting to the Pentagon from south Stafford County. To keep my sanity over the commute and politics, I wrote over fifty short stories. More than two dozen were published by magazines and journals.

I escaped the long commute and politics and moved to New Bern, North Carolina (a place I had never been to before). Here, along with volunteer work, I write novels. Yet, I still like reading and writing short stories.
