Stories My Friends Started

For Crystal, I truly do hope you enjoy this.

All they could see was the open ocean and fluffy clouds of cotton candy🍭

Marcie looked around and it appeared that she was on this beach with ten other people.

She did not know any of them.

She looked into the sky again and the clouds in fact were swirled with pink and an almost unnatural blue.

There was coughing coming from one of the other people. He was an older gentleman, looked like he was in his early sixties. He was on his hands an knees and his entire body spasming.

Have you read my latest?

Super Useless! It is only $.99 on Amazon and you can purchase it here!

Have you ever dreamt of being a Super Hero?

Did you want the ability to fly? Be incredibly strong? Turn invisible? Control minds?

For every amazing superpower, there are hundreds, maybe thousands, that are not nearly as amazing.

What if you had wings but they were literally the same size as a chicken’s? What if your hair was made of tinsel? These are the types of powers sadly handed out to the heroes contained in this set of short stories.

Join us in these adventures, where even the slightest power can help save the world. Or just be Super Useless.

“What is this thing?” Trina grumbled as the mounds of fluffy white entrapments were pulled over her head and down to her waist.

Trina took it and held it out as far as she could, as if she could avoid the humiliation if she didn’t let it touch her. She preferred chain mail and leather. What had her life come to?
