Happy New Year! Hoping for an auspicious year in writing, yesterday–January 1, 2016–I published a short story called Letter from a Desperate Father. It’s currently free on Smashwords (available in all ebook formats). It’s 99 cents on Amazon, and I’m the process of persuading Amazon to make it permanently free.


I’m pretty proud of the story. It’s only 20 pages long, so please consider reading it...

Ahh, I love 19th century Russian literature! It's my favorite genre.

All of these stories have themes also present in Anna Karenina, the only other Tolstoy book I've read. Tolstoy writes about marriage and infidelity with such passion, it makes me won

This is an emotionally affecting book. The order of stories was well chosen, and each interviewee had a voice and read like a distinct person. I read all the interviews in one day and easily wanted to give this 5 stars at that

I regret buying this. I regret reading this.

The first few pages, I thought, "This is bad." Then, as we quickly jump through Albus's first three years at Hogwarts, I thought, "Maybe this isn't so bad. It's going in a direction I really didn't expect.
