HOW BLUE CAN YOU GET? These stories originate from a daughter of the south, who summered in the midwest as a child. Having grown up in the birthplace of the blues, the author has a deep and abiding love for that genre of music. The stories she writes share a common theme of difficult life situations that can also be considered a type and shadow of blues. There is an undercurrent of blues that inhabits all of life, the essence of which she has attempted to capture in these flash and short fiction stories: A gentle giant of a black man protects a woman running away from a circus in the post-depression south. A mother and son try to salvage an ailing relationship after the death of a favored son. The first zombie apocalypse occurs during Greek Antiquity. A four year old traverses the vicious circle of life in the hands of neglectful parents. A couple unravels after the delivery of their stillborn child. A woman finally finds the courage to confront an abusive husband.
