“Just blazingly excellent storytelling. Each works, with strong flow, a sure narrator’s voice and fine context. The three most conventional stories of the group were told straight down the middle, allowing the reader to form opinions. The senior with cancer was outstanding. The glasses for children story, which could have been a quick piece, carried a bit of magic.”
“Outstanding writing. Turned what could have been small stories into little gems (like the glasses and the cheerleading uniforms.) Cancer piece, a challenging one to write, kept a great tone throughout.”
