My Short Stories:  

Since the pandemic isolation, I started doing some creative stuff just for my own therapy. Here are links to my published short stories.

 

#5  Dread of Circumcision, Dreams of Cabbage: (March 2022) 

This is my story about trust. At age five, during my circumcision, I learned not to trust others. At age fourteen, I planted an entire field of cabbage for my financial freedom and that taught me not to trust myself. Both lessons gave me the inoculation I needed against excessive trust for the rest of my life.

#4  Searching for My Baby Sister: (February/March 2022)

This is a tribute to strong and determined women in my early childhood, with a plot twist to a recent event.  This was my submission to their annual contest. It was not a winner, but was on the list of four "Special Considerations" stories; an honourable and cherished place for me as an emerging writer.

#3  A Gold Bug: (November 2021) 

A story of why I started liking this yellow metal as a little child, which led me -years later- to a friend, who made me love the English language, which led me to enjoy writing.
