Sounds interesting. I can picture that part of California. I went through the third grade in Porterville, then moved to Kansas.
Happy writing. Linda

frightening childhood, fearful existence. a child alone without the expected protection of a parent. a sad truth for tens of thousands, only realized and met face on by a few. a cycle perpetrated for years in families-that know not love. i hope Pheobe finds love and the protection it offers.
Stumbling Toward Serenity (Short Story) - 1/16/2011 10:09:41 AM
That was great. Most of the time that is the way that it is, we try to make miracles where things are so wrong. Family can sometimes can be the worst ones to deal with because that is really where the heart is. Inspite of everything it takes two to make the relationship work not one. Sometimes we have to try the tough love scenario to try to make things better.

Nice job. Knowledgeable, intelligent writing. Likeable character.
Good flow; good ending.

The sections in the therapist's office are dynamic and convincing.
The long monologues, although excellent descriptions of this sort of process, read more like a how-to manual---as much as that might be useful for some people, it's more like a story outine, than a story itself. (I say this as a writer with a similar penchant.)
Stumbling Toward Serenity (Short Story) - 7/29/2009 6:17:52 PM
A narrative filled with very believable mother/daughter pair, good psychology and good advice.
As a story, one might ask the author to "show, not tell."
A Flight of Fancy (Short Story) - 7/29/2009 6:07:06 PM
As an ex-children's service social worker, I of course was interested in that part of the topic--well done, without faults that I could find.
The character is believable, likeable...perhaps the new lover is a bit "too good to be true" but the narrative is well-done. A little more action and less narrative would be a positive, but the narrative flows well.
Makes me want to read more of Laurel-Rain Snow.
Interior Designs (Short Story) - 12/17/2008 9:05:13 AM
This short story revolves around one of my characters from "Embrace the Whirlwind" -- Martha Cummings. She is the scorned wife, the manipulative woman who attempts to come between the lovers Hal and Amber...But at the same time, the vulnerability that hides behind her perfect facade suggests that there is more to her.
Hence, this short story was born.

Nicely told! The speculation towards the end got me thinking about some of the events in my life and how they've been brushed under the carpet. Thought provoking work!
