Herstory, A Woman in History (short story/literary fiction) began as a single short story: Cold, War Kids. Written in 2008, the story of Oliver Brown and Ollie stood alone. Yet the voice of Ollie, her story, her battle cry, lingered on, and the voices of other women came forward. Following in Ollie's footsteps, Sweeny in Paint told her tale, and from there, many other women throughout past, present, and future made their impression upon these pages.
A true labor of love, this collection was written over a fifteen-year period (from 2008-2023). The stories enclosed read in three different movements - past, present, and future, and each short story denotes what movement and the time period in which it took place. The chapters ebb and flow between time periods; the stories of women are too fierce, too compelling, altogether timeless, as to defy chronological constraints.
