I’ll post the short stories I have written and published here. Would appreciate comment. I’m working on a couple of collections, the first to be called Stories That Might Have Been Told. Let me know what you think.
This is actually part of my future memoir and was published in an anthology this past year, The Times They Were A Changing and in the same issue of The Pick as “In The Shadow of Dracula’s Grave.” It absolutely did happen.
I need to point out that many of my short stories border on memoir.
I want to add here that an earlier version of this was published in the Southeastern Louisiana University’s literary magazine, The Pick last summer.
This one hasn’t been published yet though it is a strong candidate for inclusion in my collection. I’ve seen a lot of this.
This was originally written at a writing institute session. I’ve re-written it a number of times. It hasn’t been published yet, except perhaps in one of our anthologies, but it says something about the characters that I’m not sure could be said any other way.
This is not at all biographical, but a character study inspired by two people who I observed.
This was written during a Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project marathon and says something about writing.
I love this story. As with many of my writings it started as a free write on a SLWP writing marathon. I do some of my best writing in cemeteries and if I remember correctly this one was started because the Covington, LA Cemetery had a plaque that said something about a moratorium on new graves. I’ll have to do a collection of cemetery stories some time.
Started this at Cafe Rose Nicaud on Frenchman Street. Mostly a character sketch set into a time frame.
This one was started in Molly’s. Sat near the back and just noticed “Bizarre Bazaar” printed on a sign.
