Getting fired from the band, losing the drummer during a tour, giving guitar lessons, winning the crowd over in a tough redneck environment and seeing a recently deceased mother on a Lake Michigan Beach are the focuses of these short stories. Veteran newspaper reporter and columnist Rodney Hart culls his years of experience playing music for the stories. They are works of fiction but versed in the truth - what band hasn't had its drummer pass away right before a gig? And he did see his mother on the beach, singing her heart out in a farewell.
When the nights are long and cold, settle into a comfy chair by the fire and warm yourself inside and out with these moving stories. Meet retired Sandra and her forgetful husband and then discover why the Nativity play came in boxes. Find out how number 13 was lucky for Ed, and learn how Josie coped as a young mum with no money. Admire the beautiful wartime Blondie and enjoy how love conquers all in post-WW2 Germany. Then marvel at Annie's daring mother, Hilda, and read about how Laura helps her Aunty Vee get her life back. Finally, join Albert, Stephan, Karl and Philippe as they forge an unlikely friendship.
Inside you will find a collection of short stories I have written for one reason or another. They range all over the map, from a 1920's detective scene to trouble in deep space aboard a ragged ship on a routine freight run. I hope you find my works interesting enough that you might want to take a look at some of my more detailed stories, including the Past Jumper series, or the stand alone novels, The Event, and Mirror Thief, which has the first chapter included inside. Thank you for your time and happy reading!
