It starts something like this...

The screwdriver fails to disengage the airbag, so Anders drives through the old neighborhood to his childhood home and plows into the apple tree in the front yard. His teeth rattle like dice and draw blood, but his head throbs no more, no less from the impact.

Fair warning: it's not a lullaby.

Grandparents Heart Babysitting

NANO's Volume 6 Number 1 features my latest piece of flash fiction, "Grandparents Heart Babysitting". Huge thanks to the editors - certainly for the inclusion, but also, and perhaps more importantly, for their attention to detail, their push to get every word just right.

If you like things to read, short things, stories that move you and leave you wanting more, fictional flings, order your copy here.
