Prose, chapbook, 24 pages, from Bottlecap Features.

The prose collection begins with the author questioning the guilty verdict of a mother sentenced to a life in prison for a fire that killed her daughter, and how the mother may be innocent. Throughout the collection, the author ponders the loss of family, pets, strangers, rain, her interactions with lovers, guns, feeble apologies, meeting a preacher in a hospital, and attending an Apple conference.

These flash prose pieces are not only wry observations about life, but they reveal the lingering questions about making sense of what we experience. Many readers will connect to these brief but engaging ponderings.  Life is rarely as we expect.  The unexpected awaken and shape us on a daily basis.
