The Reading Nook

Who doesn't like a good story every now and then? Sometimes, after a hectic day of rushing around, de-compressing is necessary. Some people do this by having a stiff drink, indulging in chocolate cake, or going for a long walk. But for those of you who would like to take a healthier approach to unwinding, (walking IS healthy, but not when the roads and sidewalks are covered in a layer of ice), picking up some good fiction is just the thing to take your mind off the craziness for a little while.


On this page are some links to short stories that I have written over the years. Though I love to read a good story, I also love to write them when the inspirations hit. The stories below range from science fiction to contemporary literature, and encompass both action-packed suspense and literary fiction. They are shorter stories that range from 20 pages up to 60 pages, but can be read in one or two sittings, perfect for when you want to snuggle up with a hot cocoa for about an hour or are just taking an extra long lunch break and need to think of something else other than your workplace for a bit.  Just click on a photo below to read that story, and if you feel so inclined, I am always open to feedback on the stories you find here. So, get cozy with that blanket and enjoy some good reading!
