Short Story Published in Smoky Quartz

I am honored to announce that Smoky Quartz has published my short story Two Kinds of People in their Fall 2021 issue.

Two Kinds of People was a labor of love for me, a way to breathe life into a character that otherwise would have been left comatose after my forthcoming novel was cut for length. I wrote about that in an earlier post, if you’re interested in the background.

Otherwise, I invite you to read the short story, and let me know what you think. It’s a modern story dealing with some modern and some, sadly, timeless issues. And similar to the old-school short stories I love, it has a twist ending.
