Short Stories

Anne likes to write short stories, a practice that she started in high school after encouragement from two different English teachers. She let go of the art form after school, during a tour of duty in the Army, but then she revisited it for a short time during her college years after her military service. After college, life got in the way and Anne didn’t write anything fictional at all for some time.

Life is still in the way – always – but Anne is compelled to write. It’s a passion she doesn’t feel at all guilty indulging.

When she started writing again, it was the short story she turned to first; a fan fiction story, to be exact. That story, based on the two most popular characters in the 1980’s television sitcom, ‘The Facts of Life’, has never seen the light of day…and it probably never will, but it was the spark. She’s gone on to write multiple novellas and full-length novels and she’ll continue to do that. The short story form continues to beckon to her too.
