Watch Me Read: "Some Pruning is Best Done in Fall"
In October 2020, I participated in the first-ever Zoom meeting of WordFest - the long-lived and beloved forum for Pacific Northwest writers created and hosted by author Alan Rose. This is my segment from that virtual coffee house confab. In it, I read my short story "Some Pruning is Best Done in Fall".
The story is of two women, recently married, and the impact of a mother's death on their newfound happiness. A rose blossom, the third character in the tale, helps one of the women answer the question, "What's in a name?"
Here's the reading from my YouTube Channel

If you're a writer of any genre in the vicinity of Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington, I recommend you look into WordFest and the other activities promoted by Alan Rose. He's a true friend of local writers and does everything he can to help them be read and heard.
