The Author

My name is Christopher Marcus, I am 44 years old, happily hitched, and raising little Jay. I work as a WordPress and small business consultant. When I don’t raise my kid or work, I try to write and draw a little bit.

(If you got here from The Storm Lamp, don’t worry – you have not been hijacked. This is really my site – the place where I write short fiction, at any rate.)

What I have just been writing …  

Hello And Welcome

Carrie is close to going crazy for not being able to get something going with regard to her broken dreams about becoming an artist. But having been out of the practice for almost 20 years, having fried her brain more than once with coke in her younger days and now being caught up in family and dead end job … that gives her a constant feeling of not having time, space or energy to move on this path. Maybe she just has to let go and accept it is over. But then what?

Finished 16 December 2018, and taking place that day as well.
