This little 17 page zine is filled with ultra short stories - ranging from 50 to 300 words. Some are based on personal experience; some are pure fiction. Some funny. Some sad. A little of everything.
Note: While there are several stories ABOUT children, the items in this zine are not written FOR children. That said, I'd rate them at a PG to PG-13 level. Nothing too harsh.
I've had my fiction published in other small press collections and short-story websites. I maintain a portfolio at writing.com if you are interested in reading a few other pieces that I play with over there:
All stories were written by yours truly - and I even sewed the binding. The cover and back page are printed in color on card-stock, the interior pages are printed in black and white on white paper.
A Mother's Panic
I hear her singing over the monitor. Then one of her electronic toys starts talking, indicating shes out of bed. Ill give her time. Shes tired. She needs this nap.
A loud THUNK shakes the ceiling. It came from the nursery; I bolt for the stairs. If she fell shed be crying. Why isnt she crying? Shes been knocked unconscious or killed and cant cry. Its the only explanation.
I burst through the door. Shes looking at a drawer by her feet she pulled out of the dresser. I draw her into a hug, trying to stop my shaking.
