I just told you about my internet friend Cathy Olliffe-Webster’s novel, GREEN EGGS AND WEEZIE. Well, the crazy thing has gone and done another book, this one a set of short stories. It was her short stories that made me fall in love with her writing, so I’m looking forward to reading these. They’re only $0.99 for Kindle. Wheeeeeee!
When I was trying to come up a name for my short story collection I just fell in love with “Friday Girls.” The very idea conjured up images of kick-ass women, confident in their abilities but all too human, kicking up their high heels and heading brashly into the weekend. But the name was also practical. Most of the stories were, after all, written about “girls” of all ages, and most were written for #FridayFlash, the Internet meme that transformed me from a journalist who wrote just-the-facts-ma’am into a bonafide fiction writer.
I think you’ll like these stories. I’m hoping they make you smile, or make you cry, or at least make you think. These are my girls, the daughters I never had, my friends, my relatives, and they’re as special to me as the women in my real life.
Hurry over to Amazon and download FRIDAY GIRLS. She’s wonderful, wonderful, and I have great expectations for these stories.
