Inside Out

10 – 12 short stories, each of which is contemporary different fiction. Some more ordinary in nature than others. All but one have female protagonists, each with a different set of experiences and ways of working through what they consider their own every day problems. You will like some of them, but maybe not all…

Example:
FACT OF THE MATTER
You’re not going to believe my story, but I am going to tell it to you anyway.  I suppose truth is relative.  Anyway, this is my truth:  I have always wanted to be in love, and I have never known how.  Mama always told me to “save myself.”  She said, “if you give your virtue to just anyone, you will never know real love.”  So I saved myself.  For years, I saved myself.  I probably didn’t know how to do that either because no one seemed to challenge my saving, and somehow, that took away the edge of being saved.So here I was, a middle-aged “saved” person, not knowing just what to do with this treasure.
