“Reunion at the Beach and Other Flash Fiction Stories” opens with the tale of a sick, elderly woman who begs her nephew, who’s a minister, to take her, one last time, to the beach. It’s there where she and her late husband spent every anniversary. This story won me an Editor’s Choice, second place award, in a Christian writing contest several years ago.The other flash fiction stories are a combination of short stories and other pieces or devotionals where I relate common feelings, particularly experienced by women. Although the characters are fictional, they’re based on people I have known, who have been led by God, in making important life choices. Some have traumatic themes, such as “The Gift of Transparency”, while most of them are light in tone, such as “It’s Just a Mouse” and “Shopping in Dixie.” Whether serious or light-hearted, all these stories are written to convey inspirational messages and encourage readers, especially women, in their daily walk with the Lord.
