These eighteen stories are either set in the south, or the characters are southerners... or not. A few of the stories might be described as Southern Gothic. One outright horror story. Others might be sweeter than molasses.
In this collection, june bugs and magnolia trees rest alongside the saguaro cactus of the Sonoran Desert and the street corner girls of Manila. A "meet-cute" at a speed-dating event might follow a story about a persistent suitor who just won't die. Memories and grief may bring tears or smiles. Rusted old cars bring memories and grief. Sometimes reuniting the head with the body just doesn't help a bit.

About the Author
In addition to a career as a newspaper editor, publisher, and manager, Robb Grindstaff has written fiction most of his life. The newspaper biz has taken him and his family from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, from seven years in Washington, D.C., to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, he’s as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas.
The variety of places he’s lived and visited serve as settings for the characters who invade his head.
His novels are probably best classified as contemporary southern lit, and he’s had more than a dozen short stories published in a wide array of genres. His articles on the craft of fiction writing have appeared in various writer magazines and websites, and one of his seminars was presented at the Sydney (Australia) Writers Festival. He also has taught writing courses for the Romance Writers of America, Romance Writers of Australia, and Savvy Authors.
Robb retired from the newspaper business in the summer of 2020 to write and edit fiction full time.
