I Write the Songs…Sorta. Or: Look, Ma, I Did a Parody!

Fiction Break: Excerpt from ‘The Best Years of Our Lives…Supposedly’

In August 2018, a few weeks after I self-published Reunion: A Story via Amazon in paperback and Kindle e-book editions, I flirted with the notion of writing a sequel in which the main character (and narrator) of that story is confronting some of the challenges that many fifty-somethings face as they go through middle ageContinue reading “Fiction Break: Excerpt from ‘The Best Years of Our Lives…Supposedly’”
