It’s been many years in the making. Today is the official release day of my first short story collection, Nagging Wives, Foolish Husbands. The collection features 24 surreal tales about the married life. Encounter a couple who gives birth to a boot, a spouse who fights against a “laundering” wildebeest, a man who tries to clone his wife out of a clump of hair in the drain, a woman who wakes up and realizes her husband is hideously ugly, and much more. The stories may seem absurd at times, but they tell of the everyday struggles that we encounter in married life.
There are many people to thank for making this possible. I could not have written this without the support of my beautiful wife, Stephanie. I also owe a lot to the wonderful people at the Flash Factory for believing in some of these crazy stories. Amazing writers like Susan Tepper, David S. Atkinson, Jeffrey Miller, Matthew Guerruckey, and many more have made me a better and more confident writer. There are far too many people to thank in this space, so if you are reading this, then consider yourself thanked!
Here is the silly little book trailer I made to promote this book.
Again, thank you for your support. If you are interested in an autographed copy, please contact me.
