I get asked that question a lot. I take it as a compliment on the compelling nature of my stories, which are indeed based on true events. However, in the service of succinct storytelling, I create composite characters: e.g. the brother and father characters could be a mix of male relatives and/or acquaintances.
Sure, let’s hug goodbye
So I can feel the stockiness of your body
Pressed up against mine
And how well we fit together
My head against your chest
If I looked up and you looked down
Our lips could meet in the middle
If only you dared to go there
Let’s swing the pendulum back and away from normalized narcissism!
My stories are part of a broader mission to help restore the “human” in humanity. Your support enables me to continue my work toward that end. When you chip in, there’s a place to share your thoughts on my stories or this cause.
