Small Favors - Marcie Callahan’s parents run around the house in their underwear; they belch and fart and do all sorts of gross and disgusting things. They don't have a stitch of class or culture or brains or social graces. Which is why Marcie is ready for a change.

Six Catholics and an Atheist - In an increasingly hedonistic universe, Kirsten Hazelton clings to her Catholic faith. But can the hospital discharge planner hold her own when Dr. Wong, an osteopath at Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital, confronts her with his own extreme beliefs?

The Prize - Alexis Hamilton’s love life closely mirrors the comedy of errors in the E.M. Forster classic, A Room with a View. But where the fictional heroine, Lucy, elopes to Italy with her lover, it remains to be seen whether the Wellesley College graduate can pull off a romantic happy ending.

The Reticent Storyteller - Parker Salisbury is dating a girl with the social graces of a cigar store Indian. So why is he giving Lilly an engagement ring later this evening?

These are just a few of the intriguing stories contained in the collection, Kissing Cousins. Mr. Rachin favors traditional story telling techniques where intriguing characters and plot are always center stage.
