Short Stories

Read free online short stories here: suspense, mystery, murder, stories of intrigue, sci-fi/futuristic stories, and a humorous story.

Also, check out my short story series, “Nightmares of a Novelist (below).” These four stories were inspired by the “Twilight Zone” TV series. The stories are told in first person—and I am that person. You can read the stories or listen to the audio versions of me reading them—right here on this website.
