’m excited to be included in 25 Servings of SOOP Volume II, an anthology of short stories and pieces of flash fiction from authors around the world. 25 Servings of SOOP Volume I was described as a literary wine tasting of up-and-coming talent, and SOOP is confident that Volume II will follow in its footsteps. You can learn a little bit more about my specific short story below:
Michael Bennett had a major problem on his hands. Public speculation about the cause of his wife’s comatose condition has seriously cut into his business opportunities. So when he was contacted by Loreley Sparks with an offer of the prime riverside acreage she had shared with her deceased husband he jumped at the opportunity.
With ideas of turning the isolated property into a waterfront gated community, he went to meet the widow. He was unaware, until it was too late, that his greed had taken him into a terrifying, supernatural realm. A place where reality could be warped by a powerful and vengeful spirit bent on his tortured destruction. He becomes trapped in a nightmare where every hope of escape ends on the edge of a razor-sharp knife.
