Memory Lane: The First Story I had Published

“You took my uncle to a cockfight?” There was no arguing the point, and it really wasn’t a question so much as an opening statement so I kept my fat mouth shut. My wife didn’t slow down even a bit. “…My 75 year old uncle… To a cockfight… That you found on Instagram?”

Tio Fernando’s Field Trip

So since there hasn’t been a lot of new activity, I thought I’d share some of my short stories that some of my new readers might not be familiar with. This is the first piece I had published in a real honest-to-God magazine, the now defunct eFiction.

It’s about cockfighting, marriage and goofy old men. Enjoy.

Of course, if you enjoy my short story, you might enjoy one of my novels such as The Count of the Sahara or the Lucca le Peu Stories, Acre’s Bastard and Acre’s Orphans.
