As Different As Different Can Be!

My top 3 stories feature (1) Discrimination & bigotry in a fantasy world,

(2) A rather silly drinking game with a scatological origin, and (3) A

Christmas tale set in NYC during the terrible COVID crisis of Spring 

2020.  Many thanks to my readers, who continue to surprise me!


Sincerely, Catfish

Those are 'A Tale of A Different Color', 'The Phantom Turd', and 'A Viral Little Christmas.'


I'm a late Boomer.  My BFA degree is in Performing Arts Management, which I was in for 25 years.  I have a variety of interests; my musical tastes have been called 'eclectic', and I believe no house can be a home without books. That being said, I also believe that books you enjoy should not, once read, be condemned to live their lives gathering dust on a shelf.  Unless they are rare editions, you should share them.  Like stage plays, books without a readership are silent, and can vanish, dying in obscurity.  This is especially true for works that are digital. It's why comments and recommendations are so important. A story lives only as long as it is being read, or told.
