The Hermit by Shayne McClendon

When I wrote “The Hermit,” I wasn’t sure where the story was going. I knew it was both brutal and beautiful, but I didn’t see much of an actual happy ending for my characters. If you haven’t read this story, I hope you will. It remains one of my most popular ones. There is sadness, […]

Always Writing (You Should Be Part of It)

As an author, I’m incredibly prolific. That’s not a theory, that’s a fact. I have many free romance stories (and some that will twist your head around as anti-romance) here on the website. I hope you’ll check them out. At the time of this writing, I currently have 40 books available on Amazon as Shayne McClendon. …

TBS Reading List

The Barter System was my very first published book in 2012. So many stories emerged from this first one. My friend and personal assistant, Jana (Bobanna) Smith put together a suggested reading list. These are NOT all of my books…just the ones that are firmly (and obviously) in the TBS universe (and under the Shayne … Continue reading "TBS Reading List"

Retirement | A Short Story

She stepped from the kitchen of the bungalow rented indefinitely and onto the sand. A bottle of water in one hand, a book in the other, she was excited to recline in the hammock and watch the sun go down. Her eleventh sunset since coming to this little island few knew of in the South … Continue reading "Retirement | A Short Story"

She Smiled | A Short Story

He took her hand across the table and she smiled at him even as her skin crawled.  He asked her what she wanted for dinner and she answered in the way she knew he wanted her to.  He ordered her meal and she didn’t interrupt when he didn’t have the tomatoes removed from her salad.  … Continue reading "She Smiled | A Short Story"

Grief | A Short Story

He had to do it.  He had to make himself give her the flowers he’d bought. He’d begged her not to drive.  Begged her to let him take her home.  She was mad that his ex-girlfriend showed up at a party he didn’t even want to attend.  She screamed and hit him in the driveway, … Continue reading "Grief | A Short Story"

Day’s End | A Short Story

The end of the day was the worst part. The sun going down meant walking back to the house. Back to the silence. Back to the slow, insane beep of medical machinery. Keeping his son alive. In a place that was neither dead nor living…purgatory for those whose hearts continued to beat without a single … Continue reading "Day’s End | A Short Story"
