Twelve stories. Each one short. Each one odd. This book is concocted to intrigue, and otherwise confound the reader with stories that meander from troubled relationships to quirky concepts of revenge, to questions of personal reality and perception.
These small bites of life will entertain and provoke conversation and thought, and will open the door to "what if."
Enter the world of a gambling cat, consider the recurring appearance of a dead body, explore the irony of revenge, discover the possibilities of a self-decorating house, and meet a washed-up minor league baseball player on a mission of compassion.
"Bonus Room" introduces Martha and Rawley, proud new homeowners struggling to pay the bills who discover that their new home has a mind and a mission of its own.
"Night Runner" tells the story of Rina, who lives a simple life. She likes her job and her friends, and also loves running, especially at night. But the recurring appearance of a body on her favorite trail throws her life into chaos.
