from the author...
I don't get to write short stories much anymore, but I love writing them. Short stories was where I started, back when I was twelve and my sixth grade teacher handed me an empty theme book and asked me to fill it up. I had turned in a story the day before for extra credit and she liked it.
Most of my short stories have been lost, particularly those written using my old typewriter back before I had a computer, and more than a few written with only pencil and paper. But I did manage to hang onto a couple from way back when.
I thought I'd bring some of these old stories out into the light. I hope you like 'em.
