New Work – “The Jigsaw Puzzle”

My short story, “The Jigsaw Puzzle” is featured in the latest issue of the refereed e-journal the Criterion.

Thanks so much to Melissa Studdard for suggesting I submit it there. The title of the story reflects one aspect of the plot but also the process of writing it. I had written several sections of this piece separately as scattered random notes and story ideas. I suppose this process is not unusual for writers, and I’ve certainly used it to some extent often. But in this case, that was all I had, and I was surprised at how smoothly it all came together.

Hope you enjoy it.
