Lois can’t stop listening to the last voicemail her daughter left before she was killed by a drunk driver. A technological blunder drives her into deeper despair until something unbelievable happens. Six months ago Lois and Rick’s daughter, Stephanie, was killed in a tragic car accident. The voicemail she sent to her mother the night of the accident is a treasured gift from their daughter’s brief life.

To her dismay, she loses that treasured message, the last message, forever when the phone company makes software upgrades. Lois is inconsolable, until something truly wonderful and divine occurs.

The Deep Cove Lineage by Jamie Greening————

In the late 1960′s an ambitious and brilliant scientist begins work on a frightening project that will have dire consequences for one small Central Texas town on the shores of Deep Cove. The birth of the Deep Cove monster began as a controlled government experiment, but it will end with terror.

The Deep Cove Lineage is the third installment in the continuing Deep Cove series. This origins story takes the scene back to the late 1960′s when the scientists who created the monster assemble and begin their ghoulish work under the leadership of the handsome and cruel Dr. Sleeth.

They achieve shocking, disastrous, and costly success.

FLASH FICTION–A CHRISTMAS MASH UP

A HALLOWEEN STORY: WITH PIRATES!

Writing my new short story, Jolly Rogers:  A Story About Boyhood was a very enjoyable experience.  I began writing this story as a simple Halloween tale.  At one point I seriously considered turning the story dark, where an old man captures three hoodlum boys vandalizing his home on Halloween and then tortures them in retribution.  I decided against that, but so did the story.  The story chose to go a different, sweeter direction.… Register or log in to access full content

Jolly Rogers: A Story about Boyhood by Jamie Greening————

On a Halloween night something magical happens to three adolescent boys and one old man that changes their lives.

This touching short story set on a Halloween night embraces nostalgia for a simpler time when boys played make-believe and imagined pirates, treasure, and secret codes.

Three adolescent boys, Willie, Matt and Jaxon have a hard time getting candy out of old Mr. Graham Johnson when they trick-or-treat his home. During their attempt to “trick” him something unexpected happens and all three are transported to another time and place when they are all at the magical age of 10.

Author’s Notes

I wrote this story as a Halloween tale, but it turned into a trip down memory lane. Jolly Rogers will cause you to remember, or long for, a simpler time when children lived happier, less complicated lives.
