I write character-driven dark fiction.
What do you do?

Dear Readers:
One of my Friday Fright stories received a request: The reader quite enjoyed my flash story, but could I finish out the story in more detail? Perhaps as a serial?

I decided that I could.

That story was Life Imitates Art, which has now become the first episode in a 4-part serial titled A Fortune in Ink. The story itself has turned out not to be what I would call "horror", thus I have set it somewhat aside from the rest of the Friday Fright material. Though it's not the sort of thing I usually post on Friday nights, I do hope you enjoy it.
