The fireplace, like chicken soup, brings to mind warm, cozy memories. Families gather around the fireplace and invariably tales are told there. Some real, some purporting to be real, and some are outright fiction. Whatever the origins of the tale, the only precondition is that they need to hold the listener’s attention.
The stories I write here are stories I imagine telling around a fireplace.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
