Confessions: Fact or Fiction? hit #9 on the St. Louis 2011 Bestseller List!
“A fascinating exploration of the murky boundaries between fiction and nonfiction.” — Janet Hulstrand, ranked 5 Stars on Amazon
“I got this books because I am doing research about the edges between fiction and memoir, and curious about why some writing ends up as a memoir and some as fiction. …I truly could not guess most of them! The reason is that they all created a world through language, setting, scene, and characters that invited me in.” — Linda Joy Myers
“When we read fiction, we play a game: Can we decipher all the clues the author gives us? Can we put together all the puzzle pieces to make sense of the story? Can we find a solution to the mystery that lies at the heart of human behavior? This collection of short stories and memoir takes that game to a whole new level…” — Karen S.
“Confessions is an enthralling literary guessing game. Reading it, I often found myself disillusioned, stranded in the middle of the desert, wondering where the borderlines were and if it even mattered.” — Alyssa Disalvo, The Lit Pub
