I've recently added a few short stories to this site to hopefully entertain you. You'll either like them or hate them, declare that they're insane (or inane). These are loosely based on characters who have wandered into my life. For example, Hooked on Edie is based on a friend who claims to have had an assortment of totally unrelated careers throughout his life, among them: Math Teacher, Real Estate Agent, and Insurance Sales. Currently he is a Private Detective. He claims to have the bullet-hole scars to prove that sleuthing is dangerous business.
Laurie is based on a teenage crush, and Rudy sprang from an unruly child I knew.
