A collection of short short stories

“A stellar debut! I fell in love with how each short story packs a punch and is memorable on its own.” — Readers’ Favorite

Two runaways cross paths in a Tennessee bus station with only one ticket between them. A middle-aged man in Illinois eyes the daily grind of a young basketball player who never boards the school bus. A family sees looters racing toward their home as they escape an Oregon wildfire.
