SHORT STORIES

COMING SOON:

This will be a collection of short stories that I’ve written over the years to include but not limited to the following titles:

 

“Hand Sanitizer:  The Disruptive Technology that Revolutionized the 21st Century”

My creative writing professor gave us an assignment to think outside of the box and write a 500 word essay on how technology has affected the 21st century.  All of the other students wrote about computers.  She gave me 110 points because she said that anyone who could write 500 words about hand sanitizer and keep her interest until the very end deserved a good grade.

“The Motley Crew of Methodist Mothers”

This was a very interesting essay about my late husbands grandmother who organized and mobilized her sewing circle from the Methodist Church in Dyersburg, TN and created a movement in the community to educate parents and children on the dangers of communism.  Interestingly enough, until the federal government investigated and realized they were harmless, she and a few members of her group landed on a “watch list” based on a letter they wrote to president Truman.
