My Stories

I enjoy writing short stories immensely. Just because they are shorter in length does not necessarily mean that they’re super easy to write. Short stories prove quite challenging at times. Remember my rejections? I had them – all from short story writing.

I started out writing poems. Then I progressed to short stories and on to books. Please click on a story below. I hope you will enjoy the read!

But first, I do want to tell you a behind-the-scenes tidbit about “Anguished Hearts,” the newest short story I’ve published here on this site. I wrote that particular short story years ago. A teacher friend of mine read it and said she enjoyed it. She liked it so much that she asked me to please write another part to it. She did not want it to end with a cliffhanger. As a writer, sometimes I want readers to use their imagination and let them create their own ending. Nevertheless, I wrote Part II just for her. Unfortunately, the summer came and went. She did not get to read that special ending. She passed away some time later. I hope you will enjoy it, though, as much as she did.



  1. Arsoleen – thank you for the like on my post, “If I’m too sick to have fun, I’m too sick to go to work…”. I can relate to your story here. I am a magazine editor for a subscription only publication. I put one of our members on the cover, and her submission in the centerfold. It took a couple of months to finally get her published. What I did not know at press time was that she had passed away several weeks prior. I was heart broken. She would have loved her article and cover girl status!
    On another note:
    I just read your flash fiction about the vampire – I LOVE it! I finished reading it, “liked” you on facebook, and then I lost the story. Now I cannot find it. I want to leave a comment. Help! Where did I leave it? (I’m operating with an eye and half!)
