Fetish and Other Stories


Okataloa County, Oklahoma is anything but a sleepy town these days. Special-needs ghost Billy Craig haunts the local Pen & Quill Creative Writing Society, while across town Janice Lynn solves her homelessness crisis by winning self-respect and a lime-green Volkswagen. Celebrity billionaires and Brangelina updates, always one click and inbox away, are virtual distractions as these female protagonists confront life’s storms. Mortgages may barely get paid, husbands might drift without warning, and blue eyeshadow sometimes doubles in price at the local Walmart. TV evangelicals and Groupon provide comfort. Both heartache and humor abound within the pages of Fetish.
