MY SHORT STORIES is a compilation of the many stories that have floated in and out of the author's mind for years. Some of the characters are based on people she has known who have impressed her or inspired her. Most are strictly from her vivid imagination. MY SHORT STORIES is the author's second book. The first one, MY TOW GRANDMOTHERS: EMMA AND SPARROW, while fiction, was based on tow very different family personalities who were important in the author's life. Most of these stories share poignancy and humor, a difficult combination sometimes, but as the author reveals, very true to life as we know and experience it. One example is the red haired girl in The Funeral. She is a delightful child similar to one that most readers have met. Characters like Starr from the story My Own Belle Starr show an admirable strength of character. Others, like the doctors in My Friend the Country Doctor, are people the reader will enjoy meeting. The Tale of a Tooth is a fantasy based on a read incident with a tooth, and it will bring a smile to the reader.
In My Grandmother's Boarding House, Emma, a character from the first book, MY TWO GRANDMOTHERS: EMMA AND SPARROW appear again, but the house itself is an important character this time. Almost all the characters cause the reader to feel an intensity of emotions somewhere between pain and laughter.
