This powerful collection brings together 17 short stories linked only by flight or denial.
The distinct characters in Claiming One are both incredibly loving and tragically flawed: far from finding anything, and an even longer way from peace. Yet, E.J. Runyon masterfully intertwines a trail of hope, found in the hearts of the characters, to string these tales together. We welcome them: still standing, albeit wobbling, as adults or as children determined to act in adult-like ways.
Often, we arrive to their story on the heels of a major change, whether actual or symbolic; death of beliefs, sureties or illusions. Each offers a glimpse into the characters' moment of choice. We witness perilous options, discoveries and decisions, all while considering the flawless humanity presented to us.

Author EJ Runyon has the enviable skill of writing stories that make you think. It is a true gift to be able to pull a reader into your writing and EJ is the master of that skill. I found myself feeling empathy for her characters, even for the ones that made me mad! I think I've figured out her secret. In addition to being an accomplished writer of fiction, EJ is also a writer's coach and editor. She is the author of "Tell Me How to Write a Story", which I have purchased. I can't wait for her next collection of stories!
