Visit Coming of Age Croneicles

Ann WinfredIn my last post, I quoted Patricia Flaherty Pagan’s description of flash fiction which she compared to a geode that “reveals crystals shining within.” Readers can find unique flash gems  at http://comingofagecroneicles.com

Ann Winfred, creator of “Coming of Age Croneicles, Voices From Over the Hill,” offers excellent flash stories, essays, and meanderings. “Bats in Our Belfries” is one of my favorites. “Falling in Love Again” has a WOW ending on Maui. Winfred lived in Hawaii for several years and brings the essence of the islands to several of her meanderings, as she likes to call them. “South Texas Harmony” takes the reader on a truck ride to the sensory area where she lives now.  In some shorts, she has introduced Inez, a character who doesn’t want to be found and plays cat and mouse with a private eye who’s on her trail.

The category in the Table of Contents called Voices is “a cornucopia of evocative thoughts and observations from our world’s most elegant minds.” Winfred quotes Eudora Welty, Bette Davis, Grandma Moses, Joan Didion, among many others.

Winfred brings flash stories and essays to a new level of gems in small packages that entertain but also enlighten.
