Book: The Stroboscopic Life of Blake Winkler - And Other Stories by Stefanie Fifecategories: Book, Short Story, Fiction, Music, Ironic, Dark Humor, Odd, Short Stories
Stefanie Fifeabout this book: This collection of short stories was written over five years. The inspiration behind each tale is as unique as the story itself- sometimes born from a simple comment, a remembrance or picture. The stories visit the dark side, but don't lose sight of irony, humor, or hope. The audience for this collection is adult, as the themes are mature, and the writing contains an occasional curse word. Life and listening was my only research, and every time I write, I learn something. It's the implementation of that knowledge that is the hard part.
I hope the reader enjoys the time spent with the characters in these stories- the pastor who accidentally hires the devil as his secretary, the three songwriters who plot to kill their publisher, the man who learns to let go of the past from a stray cat, the soldier who receives an unexpected penalty after slacking on guard duty, and the title character- Blake Winkler, who realizes he has wasted his life.
