[Flash Fiction]
Ode to the Special Child:
No Prize this Year for the Ethically Gifted
Jeremy was a boy labeled by many as “special.” Few knew, however, just how special he really was.

This flash fiction (just 1000 words) is dedicated to all those in the world who have been judged or categorized as “special.” Special in the negative sense, that they may lack certain expected abilities. But it is a stigma unfairly given them by their own myopic societies–people limited themselves in perceiving phenomenal talents which we can truly call “special.”

This is the case of one such boy. It is a short tale with a huge message. That we should recognize and acknowledge our most essential talents—found often where we least expect them. Jeremy’s case is a lesson for all of us.

Read this Flash Fiction and pass it on to others.

The world needs more tolerance of diversity. And to learn to embrace and celebrate Emotional Intelligence:

Hobson’s Choice - an excerpt

This chapter of my story ‘Hobson’s Choice’ has won inclusion in @The_Bookshop’s Summer Anthology 2019 as one of their favourites.
It’s a story about a teenage boy having no choice but to accept his new reality following an horrific accident. This chapter focusses on his inner turmoil.
Warning: some profane language.

Jonas has never been observant of his neighbors. Quite the contrary.
A male adult dealing with his problems daily, he fails to see a young girl going by Susan passing by his house every day, without fail.

Nothing seems to be odd about her actions, except for one thing: what is her deal with flowers?

The older gentleman always arrives a quarter past in his dusty suit smelling of tobacco and peppermint. Sui Lyn politely always takes the crinkled letter from him and reads it.
