Spec stories available:

  • Mario DeFario's Garden - Picture Book - Humorous Fiction - 360 words. Mario DeFario loves picking peas and counting carrots in Granny’s garden, but when he’s so dirty artichokes appear in his armpits, she announces 'bath time' and he revolts in a stormy fit. This story was a finalist in the #FicFest contest. I am currently working on several sequels involving splinters, dancing, capes and monster traps.
