When sixteen year old Vicky teaches ten year old Buddy to ride his new bicycle he falls in love forever. Is there anyway he can overcome the obstacle of age difference and the other low and inside curves life throws his way to win Vicky for the rest of their lives? Well, of course, this story has a happy ending. Check out this story at and click on Free Reads. You go through the steps as if you are going to buy it only the balance is zero, hence "free read." Hope you take a look see. Larry

My Free Read early January

Hello everyone. I'm told my free read will appear in early January at The Wild Rose Press. It is entitled Buddy's 12-year Crush. It was quite a challenge to compress Buddy and Vicky into 2500 words and cover twelve years of their lives. Hope I get some comments.

My new story on

Just wanted to let you know I have a 700 word romance story on the site. The title is Unspoken Love and yes, there is no dialogue in it. I've been looking for my Free Read contribution to Wild Rose but have not seen it released yet. It should be any day as this is Vintage Rose month. The title is Buddy's 12-yr Crush. If you see more than thirty titles listed in Free Read then maybe it finally made it. Catch you later. Larry

New Story, End of a String, released today, Apr 9.

My new story, End of a String, has released today, April 9. For potential downloaders I must add that the woman on the cover is not the woman in the story. Natalie is a brilliant electrical engineering major, beautiful and arrogant toward Slim. He meets her at an exchange dinner where sorority girls come to the residence hall where Slim stays. Slim is on scholastic probation after flunking calculus the previous semester. Unable to afford to have a girl friend, Slim sees it may be best since Natalie wouldn't give him the time of day. However, she relents later in the evening and agrees to help him with calculus. Slim couldn't be happier. At the end of the calculus help session with her, he takes a desperate step in hopes of seeing Natalie again. Roller skating is their common interest and finally after a number of skating dates, Natalie proclaims to Slim that he is the end of a string of boy friends she's had. Slim couldn't be happier. I'll include an excerpt in a later post. Thanks for reading and thanks to Nancy Swanson, my editor, for working with me on this story.
