My debut literary crime novel,”You Beneath Your Skin,” published by the fab team at Simon and Schuster IN is slowly making its way into the world.
It is available in India here.

I was introduced to flash fiction many years back, and I practiced it with the A to Z Challenge in 2011.
Since then, flash fiction has had a special place in my heart–you can fire off a piece pretty quickly, as I found out way back then.
They’re compressed prose, some of them reaching the completeness and self-assurance of poetry. I read them often on days when I have no time for a longer read, and sometimes I save them, like marbles, or feathers, or petals in a book during my childhood, to bring out and marvel at later
Here are some of the stories I’ve read and loved.
Michelle Ross: Snow White with Goats
John Haggerty: Lucky Number Six
Sommer Schafer: The Snake as Big as Their House
Elaine Chiew : Insurance
Mary-Jane Holmes: Fission
Tania Hershman: Missing my Liar
Lydia Davis: Five Short Stories
Jonathan Cardew: Sadness, the adulterer

I’ll read just about anything, but I don’t have much experience with flash fiction. I’ve read a few anthologies that are probably considered flash, though, and I enjoyed them. It’s nice to have short pieces to read in a single short-time sitting. Trouble is, even with those anthologies, I generally gulp them all down at once instead of spacing them out. (A reading glutton!)
I’m almost finished with your book. It’s been difficult finding time lately, but I’ll definitely finish it this weekend. (No medical visits!!! YAY!) I’m at about the 90% mark now, and my Kindle ran out of steam. It should be ready any minute now…
Love flash fiction. And more so writing them. Please send me a link to. your flash fiction, D.
I enjoy flash fiction though I read very little of it now.
Writing flash fiction is an art and I have also come across this genre during the AtoZ challenge in past few years. While I may not be able to recco any, I do know that I loved reading them and am really fascinated by the shortness of the story but how complete it turns out to be.
I didn’t even know what flash fiction was! I guess I assumed it was fiction that had to be written in a flash but it’s actually just very short stories. I like them. Thanks for the introduction.
What is Flashfiction?
I became a fan of your writing after reading your short stories. I love a well written flash fiction, especially those with twisted endings. They make you read the story again and again. Thank you for sharing these links. I will definitely read them.
Kathy Fish is one of my favorites.
I remember your A to Z stories – they were great!
