The Piano Book - Cover - Correct Size

The Piano Book is my first published short story. I first published this story in 2012 on Smashwords. I received encouraging feedback and recently realized that I had never shared it here, on my blog. I believe you guys should be the first to know about my work, and I try to do that here. I feel it is time to share the story in parts here, as I know some readers will not read it on Smashwords or on e-readers. So, for the sake of those readers, and for those who have never read this story, I will be sharing it in parts over the next few weeks.  Here’s the summary:

A curious 10-year old school boy visits the house of a reclusive neighbor to play his piano. What he discovers is the ultimate reason why this neighbor does not like visitors.

And now, here is Part 1.  Be sure to leave a comment, feedback or suggestion.  Thanks in advance! Read More
