DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Treat yourself to a mini oasis and enjoy a short story. Gloria Nye, award winning author of the Dragonfly Series novels, has written 19 that will tickle your fancy.
If a short story is a literary snack, this book s a banquet of sensory delights: suspenseful, surprising, humorous, touching, mystifying and inspiring.
*What’s a person to do when they wake up in the book they were reading? *What happens when a Quantum physicist meets the Easter Bunny? *How does an aspiring actress deal with seventeen bossy crows? *And is a young autistic man fated to live closed off forever from human connection?
All of these, and more, await your reading pleasure when you have ten minutes while waiting for a bus or a train, on a coffee break, or just need some time out.
“Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.” ― Neil Gaiman
