The Storm – A Dystopian Fiction Short Story That Centers on the Dangers of Judging Others – FREE EBOOK TODAY ON AMAZON

I am running a one day promotion today for my short story, “The Storm”, for free on Amazon. After today, it will be $.99. I would greatly appreciate you downloading it for free and leaving me any feedback. I would describe it as a dystopian fiction story that centers around the concept of the damage that can be done when we judge others based on our personal opinions or beliefs without clear evidence of truth. There is nothing wrong with having deep personal opinions or beliefs, but I believe there is a danger in lumping whole groups of people into a certain category without getting to know them personally first. I certainly am guilty of this myself, which is where some of the inspiration came from. We can disagree with someone’s beliefs or opinions but we should still treat them like human beings and not cast them into the shadows because they may be different than us.91Eh2zvyTKL._SL1500_

When a unusual storm hits the Utopian town of Nod, the forces of evil are released and allow an unthinkable tragedy.” 

The story can be found here.

My second story, “The Christmas Gift” is also available in the Kindle Store for just $.99.

“A depressed man – who has long given up on his dream to become a writer and now holds a high paying, corporate job – gets reintroduced to his childhood through extreme circumstances and finds his love for writing reawakened by a Christmas gift.”

“When mysterious neighbors move in next door in the middle of the night, Katherine and Josh are sure there’s something not quite right about them – no one has ever seen the81uK9uDzptL._SL1500_m and their garage door is always shut. Josh decides to take matters into his own hands one day and attempts to investigate the house next door.

Fragile – A Sonnet

Beauty bathes like a new born babe,
swimming into the world in a mother’s embrace.
Shinning like a light that quickly fades,
extinguished into nothing without a trace.
Beauty rests like a fresh, wet snow
blanketed over the frozen ground,
but with only the warning of the sun’s warm glow,
fades into silence without a sound.
For beauty’s not a crop for an idle harvester,
nor to be left blowing in the breeze,
but nurtured to life like the gardener –
love and patience worked and watered into seed.
Beauty…life…fragile like a world of glass –
all clutch onto lives doomed to pass so fast.
