Holiday Tales is a placeholder I’ve created for my stories having to do with different American holidays. I’ve only written two holiday tales so far, but I’m open to writing more if the right inspiration comes along. For now, you can access the two I’ve written from the drop-down menu under this heading or directly from the links I’ve provided below.
With Apologies Mr. Dickens is a gay-themed Christmas tale, one loosely based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I’m not nearly as good a writer as Mr. Dickens, of course, so don’t set your expectations too high. But I enjoyed writing it and you may find it uplifting if you decide to take a look.
Stuffed is my little tribute to Thanksgiving, a holiday celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States. It’s only three servings (or chapters if you will). Part feast, part farce, my hope is that it will provide a better understanding of the true meaning of the holiday.
Like I said, I’m open to writing more holiday tales; and while I’m not making any promises, please feel free to e-mail me your suggestion if you have a favorite holiday you’d like to see a story written about.
It would be better still if you could share some ideas for how you think the story should play out, of course. I’m not promising to use them, but ideas and suggestions are always welcome.
Keep in mind I like to write stories about topics like right and wrong, good and evil, war and peace, hope and despair, and virtue and vice, among others. Sometimes I even write about all these topics and more in the very same story 🙂
But I try to avoid sermonizing in my stories. I prefer to explore these topics through the challenges my characters face in everyday life.
With that said, I hope my tales will make your holidays happy indeed!
