In the back channels of the Fondue Writers Club (and Bar & Grille and Laundromat), my fellow demented sribblers and i have attempted to categorize ourselves. Paul Bennet is the classy one. Kathy Kexel is the nice one. Derek Alan Elkins is the strange, Jamie Greening is witty. And the Joes (Joseph Courtemanche and I) are the demented ID to everyone else’s Ego and Superego.
Todays author, Rob Cely, is The Professor. And, no, I’m not talking about the youtube star who goes to public basketball courts across the country to detroy everyone with his superior ball-handling skills (although, to be fair, I’ve never seen Cely hoop it up). I mean actual professorial writing.
Today’s story is no different. It’s reminiscent of past takes from American lore with a message that leaves you thinking. Do yourselves a favor and check out Children of The Wild Ones by Rob Cely.
If you have the time, please check out the sites for ALL of the Fondue Writers: Joseph Courtemanche, Jamie D. Greening, Kathy Kexel, Derek Alan Elkins, Rob Cely, and Dr. Paul Bennet. If you like what you see, why not pick up a few copies of their books? It covers the cost of everything, and it gives us hope in those long, dark nights when we’re dreaming up new stories, wondering if the monsters in our heads matter only to us, or if one day they might come out of the dark to terrify you as well.
If you’d like what you see, you might also check out our first collection of short stories, The Covid Quarantine Catina, written during the first months of the Covid-19 lockdowns. It’s available in Kindle, Paperback, and Audio formats.
Derek Alan Elkins will be back tomorrow with the penultimate story in our Halloween Fiction Party. Until then, think about your life a bit, make the next right choice, and always … don’t break anything.
