Back in May I let you know who my favorite character is. Today, I will tell you one of my favorite stories.


I wrote “Almost Perfect” in 2003. It was published in the Horror Story Newsletter in 2010. Last year I revised it again. It was fun to write. I still enjoy reading it. And, it has so many possibilities for growth.

“Almost Perfect” is the story of a couple, Debbie and Frank, who are looking for a summer home. They looked at a bunch of homes, but not one was just right. When they were ready to call it quits and return home, the came across the “perfect home” sitting on some fantastic land. From the moment they saw it, both of them knew it was just what they wanted.

Unfortunately, not everything is what it seems …
