Our stories are suitable for omni-locational reading. :)

Seriously, we love to read so much we are happy to read anywhere, and so we figure other readers are also delighted to have a few free minutes and a good book at hand, wherever they happen to be when that fortuitous event takes place.

If you're lucky enough to be reading, you're lucky enough.(less)
