About the collection

When You’re on the Edge, It’s Easy to Fall

These are stories of lives on the edge.

A girl tortured by the world within her. A boy powerless to escape his home. A mother doomed to live with her greatest mistake. A man lost in a maze of grief.

Each raindrop provides a microscopic mirror of ourselves and those around us. But we can’t always trust what we see. The distorted images disorient the mind, altering our view of reality.

This second collection of flash and micro fiction explores the depths of the human condition and the fragile surface of our perceptions.

Dive into these tales of darkness and discover what life is like On the Edge of a Raindrop

Each selection is approximately 100 words, with a bonus section of Microbursts in which each story is told in 50 words or less.

An early review for the collection

Intriguing Collection on November 28, 2017

An intriguing collection of vignettes, micro fics and collected thoughts. There is a strong atmospheric sense to the writing and the author’s turn of phrase is alternately lyrical and stark.This reads quickly, but many of these short snippets offer delicious phrasing and unique word choices to ponder. Nicely done.
