Fiction is like a spider’s web,
attached ever so lightly perhaps,
but still attached to life at all four corners.

True Beauty

People are like stained-glass windows. 
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in
their true beauty  is revealed
only if there is light from within.

People Like Them

What a great way to start the new year! I have been informed by the editor of Open Road Review, a literary journal in New Deli, India, that my fiction piece, People Like Them, has been accepted for publication.

This is the first story I've written in epistolary form. It didn't start out that way; as I got into it, I realized that a letter from Britanna Bridgewater to her cousin Lillian Kirby informing her of a murder/suicide in their little southern town was the best way to present the tragic news of people they both knew.

People Like Them will appear in their February issue.
