Guest Post by Helen W. Mallon, author of You Say You Want a Revolution

3 young women on the edge, a dad locked in the bathroom: 3 stories plus a great giveaway!

We are an equal-opportunity household when it comes to the fictional species we allow in the house.  I read about vampires in the bathtub, and my kids are partial to flesh-eating zombies.  Still, I keep coming back to something Johnny Depp said in an interview: “I was always fascinated by people who are considered completely normal, because I find them the weirdest of all.”

Meet Harris, a young, married father of toddler twins. 

His wife, Izzy, is so stressed, she tells him late one night, that she’s thinking of committing herself to a mental hospital. “My brain has shrunk to the size of a gummy bear.” Harris’s immediate response— “Did You Put the Cat to Bed?” inspires Izzy to spin out and hit the pavement wearing a red dress and “f***-me” shoes.

Nothing supernatural there. But what happens to Izzy in a hotel room is so strange that the bottom drops out of the elevator on the way down.

Who are the real vampires? 

Sexual predators can crop up in very benign places.  Sarah, a motherless teenager of the 1970’s, is convinced that her relationship with a male teacher at her Quaker school is “liberating.” Only when she encounters another teen in trouble does she find the courage to see her lover for what he really is.  “You Say You Want a Revolution”

What’s a teenager to do when her dad moves into the bathroom—permanently?

In “Casual Day at the Crazy House” Olivia’s worried that her father won’t come out to attend her high school graduation.   Her kinda racist grandmother night have found a shrink who makes house calls, but Gammy calls him “That Hindu.”  And Dr. Krishnamurthy’s niece has taken a dislike to Olivia. Or has she?

I’m a writing coach as well as a fiction writer, and I love helping others to hone their writing voices.  Check out my blog and leave a comment or two.  I blog about how to keep writing without losing your mind.  more info and press, etc.
