The Same Old Haunts (Fall 2010)

Three Short Stories
Three stories that I wrote from 2008-2010. The stories range in protagonists: The first is about a lonely older woman who is interrupted from her daily routine by a young local girl. This visit surges a series of memories and reflections that the woman has about her family and years past. The second is about an elderly man who lives in a senior’s home. Old age and solitude has caused this man to understand the choices that had led to his current situation and how he reconciles with his past in order to find a restful future. The third story is about a young woman who contemplates what kind of path she is embarking on and how much of it is reliant on her on-again-off-again boyfriend.
A funny short story about a girl that prefers to ride a tandem bicycle solo-style.
