The Wisdom of Ages – A Short Story Collection, my new short story collection was just released by Books We Love Publishing Partners.
Three stories; four men whose lives take unexpected turns. Meet Samson who wonders what is down that country road that draws people so. Should he get in that old truck and go see? Mel and Rube have been having dinner at the Leavenworth Grill every Wednesday for years. One day the menu changes and so does life for Mel. Tom would give anything for his life to change. Can he beat back the effects of a crippling stroke by sheer force of determination? Growing old is not for the faint of heart.
I like working with a publisher who does all the work of getting a cover, ISBN number, and getting that all up on Amazon and other sites for e-readers. But I have also been experimenting with putting my own content up. That can be very time consuming for someone like me who has a steep learning curve when it comes to new technology, but I am learning.
Last Friday I announced that I have two new short stories up on Amazon for the Kindle. SAHM I Am and The Visitor They are both priced at 99cents and make a good, quick read.
SAHM I Am is a humorous sci-fi story. Technology may be on the verge of having sophisticated home computers that run an entire household, but have the scientists taken into consideration the human factor? When SAHM, a Sensor Activated Home Manager, is field tested at the O’Neal home, he’s up against the biggest challenge a computer has ever faced; one Shanna O’Neal.
The Visitor was first written as an assignment in a writing class to adapt a classic fairy tale, and I chose Goldilocks and the Three Bears. A camping trip in the Rockies becomes most interesting when a stranger shows up and the Cantrell family has to find out who has been sneaking into their cabin.

They sound like great stories, Maryann – and I had been wondering about the plot of SAHM I Am.
Helen, I first got the idea for that story when my husband worked for Honeywell and they were going to test a home computer. He joked that I would wreck it the first week we had it. Not sure if that is why another family was selected. LOL
Your stories sound fun!
Thanks for stopping by, Carol. Hope you have a Happy Easter, too.
