Angels is now FREE

posted on: June 25, 2014

My illustrated short story, Angels is FREE on Amazon starting today, June 25, 2014 through June 28.  That’s 4 days to pick it up here.


Angels is an illustrated short story for adults. Set in inner city Detroit, this is a tale of a family beset by the traumas of drug addiction, adultery, prison, violence as well as the joys of sexuality, love and, especially, children.  The mother, desperate when her husband is sent to prison, becomes a stripper to support her two daughters, her angels.

Creating illustrated short stories is my way to combine my love of writing with art.  The story won a prize from a small literary journal more than a decade ago and was partly inspired by my work in a woman’s prison.  The story of a stripper, her children and the men in her life is definitely for grown-ups though the images of eroticism and violence are tasteful. There are over 13 different images of mixed media.

Reviewers have said: “It is a love story, a story of pain and hurt, a story of beauty in every life…”

“A short and powerful read about love and choices. Oh so beautifully written with sparse poetic language….love takes many forms. I loved this…”
