IN DEVELOPMENT | “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”

An Urban ReImagining and a story about ethics and morality - coming in 2017

This story is based, in part, on a 2000-year-old fable. But in an urban setting buffeted by current events: escalating violence, growing social unease and inequality. And… there’s a girl that the boy loves… there’s always a girl. 😉 They both need saving, but who is going to step up? The boy? Or will the girl save herself and the boy, too? You’ll get to read and find out [when the story is available, stay tuned for updates]. Fables were initially meant for adults and covered religious, social and political themes. They were also put to use as ethical guides, from the Renaissance onward, for the education of children. So too this story will resonate, on several levels, about ethics and moral responsibility. And about defeating monsters. Because they’re out there… and sometimes they’re not where you think.

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.

  1. TEASERS?! Seriously? Common! I actually thought I was going to get at least the first chapter. You keep pulling the rug out from under my feet and leave me “crying” for more. HELP!

    • Hi Brenda. I’ve a few things that come ahead of this story, but it is one I have roughed out to develop further after the holidays. Up next is publishing NIGHT DESCENDS and my short story ‘Meet–Love–Prey’ for Halloween, and then my collection for Thanksgiving, SEASONS PASS. 🙂
