I’m so pleased to announce that I’ve submitted, “The Sunflowers,” to KDP as an ebook. It’s now available for pre-order and will go live on Monday, February 1st!

I’ve added it as part of the new series of short stories I’m releasing, The Abiding Fascinations of an Eclectic Mind.

The Sunflowers

James moved to a small town in the south to start over. His idea was to have plenty of time to work on his hobbies as he rebuilt his law career. Unfortunately, his business demands are eating up all his free time.

As he struggles to become part of the community and make his dreams a reality, he becomes fascinated with an elderly man he often sees around town. Always alone and never in a hurry, the old man lumbers back and forth along Parish Road, lugging a beat up old cart full of who knows what to who knows where. James doesn’t know him—doesn’t even know his name—but decides he has to meet him.

When the opportunity presents itself, James reaches out to take it. Getting to know the elderly man at last, he finds more than he even knew he was looking for—a confidant, a teacher … and a friend.
