Ashes to Ashes, Oranges to Oranges is a book of 12 short stories written by me, with 12 beautiful illustrations by Marybeth Chew. The genre is magical realism, which means that the stories start out in everyday reality, then take a sharp left turn into the unexplainable.
Here are three sample stories from the book – click each link to read the story for free:
