In TO END WITH ASHES, three flash fiction stories explore the terror, loneliness, and regret that stems from personal loss and irreversible error. "Consequences" takes place in the deepest depths of the ocean where Dr. Joseph Himmler makes a deal with an ancient power that can grant any wish for a costly price. In "Room to Remember," David, an elderly man, reminisces about the precious memories attached to a specific hotel room, leaving him lonely and isolated from society. Anthony is a young husband and father wrestling with overwhelming guilt due to the sudden passing of his family's beloved dog, Periwinkle, in "Annuals and Perennials."
