“The Apple Sniper” is one of a dozen or so short stories I did in order to explore the childhood relationships in a neighborhood much like the one where I grew up. I was particularly interested in how the proverbial nurturing village’s assumed values play a role in the development of the diverse adult personalities that later emerge. I hope the “The Apple Sniper” speaks to your child within. I also hope it speaks to the wiser, more comprehending perspective of the adult who was once that child. Most important, I hope it reminds us all that it takes a village to raise a sniper.
