A Bit of Sunshine

Although 2020 has not exactly been a banner year in many respects, it has been a good one on the literary front. So far, five of my short stories have reached publication and a sixth one is due to be released this fall. I am truly grateful for this bit of sunshine in an otherwise challenging year.
