I won an award for my short story about corrupt baby brokers, "Bargaining," and then savvy mystery author Kay Kendall suggested that I put together a collection including that story and some of my other short fiction. I took her suggestion, ran with it, and "Trail Ways Pilgrims: Stories" was born. I love it when authors inspire and support each other! (less)

Solid thriller. Excellent character study. Plot slows in the middle as the narrative focuses on the protagonist's struggles, but final section is an exciting and twist-filled ride.
