My latest short story, “ Now You Never Call Me anymore,” has just been published by Adelaide Literary Magazine. Tina, the main character, is facing an emotional crisis like the one Louis Armstrong sang about: “Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans, when that’s where you left your heart?”

Drawn by a longing for their past, as well as the city’s vibrant music and culture, Tina visits her critically ill ex-boyfriend Matthew, taking pains to hide the trip from her husband. Instead of the closure she hopes to find, she learns a secret that will haunt her present life.

In addition to the web version linked above, there’s an online paperback here. You can also find a regular print edition of the magazine at Amazon.

Whatever format you read in, I hope you enjoy the piece. Please check out the other great writing at Adelaide too. You can find all of my stories here.
