Future Story @ Cream City Review

My story “Snowflakes Bouncing for Gold” will be coming out at Cream City Review!

It’s an office story.

The original title was: Tiny Little Snowflakes Bouncing For Gold. It was changed of course. However, I can’t take all the credit for it. The movie, “Balls of Fury” was the inspiration – a 2007 American sports comedy film on ping pong. My favorite part was when the Reagans were filmed “watching” the ping pong match at The White House: “Tiny balls, bouncing for gold.”

Hilarious. Gets me every time.

Saran Wrappers at The Disappointed Housewife

Kevin Brennan allowed my Saran Wrapper girls do their thang over at The Disappointed Housewife.

Read it. Enjoy it.

It’s a place “for “high risk” writing, fresh, creative, experimental, idiosyncratic, idiomatic, iconoclastic writing.” He says, “Writers should be allowed to have their quirks.”

Nice of him.
