Short Stories

I post flash-fiction pieces most Fridays.  Many are from writing prompts, often from the profane but wonderful blog of Chuck Wendig.  Not all these stories are suitable for children, and most are not, in fact, meant for children (even when suitable).  If a story is not at least PG-13, I have posted a warning at the top of the page.

All stories published on the blog, like all blog contents, are protected under copyright and are the property of Rebecca M. Douglass.  If you enjoy them, please consider purchasing my books.
