New Short Story

The Last Rose Arch

Take two typical preconceptions we have of ourselves and turn them upside down.

The first is that we are compassionate, and that the universe beyond our skies is a cold and hostile place.

The second is that the Earth we know takes center stage in the grand concourse of creation.

What if our world is nothing more than a lost spec in the endless dark, and when they find us, they bring all the power of the universe to our aid and to rescue us from ourselves?

In The Last Rose Arch, I answer those questions in the form of a love story that lasts until the end of time and the end of tears.
