Beach Life - Award Winning Story

I’m pleased to announce my short story The Bomber Jacket won a top award in the 2017 Beach Reads contest. There were 143 entries of which my story tied for third place and will be published along with a 24 other entries in the book Beach Life published by Cat and Mouse Press. Beach Life is now available at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and on Amazon.

Beach Life is the 5th book in the award-winning Rehoboth Beach Reads series of short story collections set in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. This anthology contains 25 stories in a variety of genres (historical fiction, romance, magical realism, memoir, mystery, humor) that make perfect beach reads but can be enjoyed any time of the year. Here's just some of what's in store in Beach Life: You’ll find a girl with dreams of making the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, a consignment store jacket with a history, a well-traveled hermit crab, a mermaid wedding, and a boardwalk mime. You'll meet a young con artist, a dolphin rescuer, a herd of Hemingway impersonators, a girl who's gone viral, and a woman who realizes she's a dead ringer for her husband's former flame.
