Writing as S. Author Yates
I write short stories. My longest is just over 10,000 words and my shortest (not counting the drabble) is 187. I have to be in a special to write poetry, so I only have a dozen or so of those.
I have stories in “a ton” of genres and like to put a twist at the end. (No, it’s not because of my twisted personality.)
I hope you find something you like.
My short stories are available in anthologies:
(Sword and Sorcery) In 15th century France Gabrielle – a free-lance mercenary – has to deal with a day beyond her wildest imagination. Situations that take her so far outside the world, she may not make it back.
(Other World) A story so short that the description could be longer.
(Fantasy) Lisa Scott, cub reporter for the local new paper, writes a throw-away piece mocking witchcraft and its practitioners. That may turn out to be a bigger error than she can imagine.
It’s Halloween. You pick up a hitchhiker. What could possibly go wrong?
Some Superheros get no respect.
(Poem) A life analyzed.
