New Short Story Collection: Strange Convergence

 



Strange Convergence is a collection of 12 standalone short stories. Many of the stories involve convergences of lives, and of life circumstances, that were unforeseen but are impactful. A nonconformist pre-adolescent clashes with an overbearing adult in a church; a young adult seeking a fresh path in life becomes acquainted with an artist who has a domineering personality and unique worldview; a guy in his 20s is introduced to the dangers of addiction through the actions of a person he admires; a man’s ability to enjoy an unexpected award he receives is affected by an event that causes him to reflect on troubles in his family; an unresolved romantic relationship collides with an opportunity for a possible breakthrough in artistic aspirations; a child being raised by an emotionally unavailable single parent forms a special bond with his babysitter . . .

The collection is available as an e-book on Amazon.
