Something for Everyone, "Playing with Water: A Collection of Short Stories"

I guess this is a writer's traditional path: You go to college, you get an English, you work as a newspaper reporter, you write your own column, then you write short stories, then get one published in a journal, then publish a collection of short stories, then write the Great American Novel.

From college graduation on, my path as a writer, well, fiction writer, went the other way: Right out of college, well, in college, too, I wanted to write the Great American Novel, eventually settling for what I like to call the Great American Short Novel.

It was not until the last couple of years -- after taking a break from ten years of screenwriting -- that I decided to write short stories, or at least work on short stories.

Playing with Water: A Collection of Short Stories contains both older and newer short stories, some dating back to when I wrote the novella Hurricane Jane and some newer, written only in the past three years or so.

Being that I've written across genres that seem to choose me, outside of westerns and science fiction, I think this collection has something for everyone, whether it's romance, mystery, suspense, thrillers, or even fantasy if you're into mermaids.

This collection is available in paperback for $13.95 through Amazon. 

Purchase now.
