Flashes of Lightning comprises fifty-two fiction stories (each one 101 words or less) that touch the reader's funny bone, heart, mystery-solving mind and sometimes, dark side. What drives this collection of economical stories are a medley of memorable characters and a tight combination of realistic dialog, interior monologues and irony. The cast of characters-both likeable and despicable-have motives varying from healthy to diabolical, despite the limited word counts preventing detailed back stories. The stories take place in a variety of settings, including the desert, forests, a funeral home, beaches, bayou, basements, bars, churches, a wedding reception, Ireland, New York City, and Paris. Characters include scoundrels, liars, cheats, murderers, hit men, psychics, ghosts, sleepwalkers, evil faeries, cats, dogs, a horse and a skunk.
