I present these short stories below as works-in-progress, because they need to be polished up a little bit more before being submitted to journals or anthologies. But in the interest of getting myself out there, I thought I’d let people take a peek.
The six stories below are all part of a short story book I am writing called Unfinished Business. These are the stories that end with a surprise, which was never intentional. Halfway into writing each of these stories, my brain asked me, “what if this were to happen?,” and I went with it.
These stories all open in a new window, but if you would like, you can download the PDF version.
(all of these novels are works in progress. I want to finish one by the end of 2016, but I had to put writing on hold while I record, publish, and promote my music album, City Lights, that will be released October 31st, 2016)
