Paper Patches (Short Fiction for Women)
By
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 69,180. Language: English. Published: July 25, 2014. Category: Fiction » Women's fiction » Chick lit
These 28 short stories are geared toward women and women's issues. Although, at times, the writing leans toward the dark and dreary and death, these are all stories women can relate to. The stories may be bizarre at times, yet still ominously real. This is women's literary fiction with a darker twist that transcends simply romance.
Broken Cornstalks

Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 69,230. Language: English. Published: July 17, 2014. Category: Fiction » Literary collections » Canadian
The 28 stories in this book, though geared toward women, include tales of the supernatural, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, romance, even a couple of sappy stories. Some of these have been published previously (or will soon be published) in anthologies and are reprinted here with permission.
Creepy Crude Christmas
By
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 25,670. Language: English. Published: October 11, 2013. Category: Fiction » Humor & comedy » Black comedy
Buyer Beware: These are crude stories centered around Christmas about the fictional Grimes family who are somewhat demented and wacky. Although there is no graphic sexual content in this book, there are adult situations and topics not suitable for young people. Perhaps even adults, with normal, sacred views on Christmas may not appreciate these words. Buyers and readers beware.
Between These Pages
By
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 63,510. Language: English. Published: June 23, 2013. Category: Fiction » Anthologies » General
This book is a compilation of 18 short stories of varied genres. Josh Hicks stated: "With respect to the other authors I’ve reviewed, Between These Pages is probably the best book by an independent author that I’ve read over the course of this year. It was well-written, and contains a lot of interesting topics. Cathy MacKenzie is one of my favorite personalities when it comes to writers."
Creepy Crazy Christmas
By
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 15,310. Language: English. Published: December 3, 2012. Category: Fiction » Holiday » Christmas
(3.00)
Follow along with the Grimes family as you read about some of their horror-filled, wacky, and comical Christmases. Among the cast of characters are the parents, Elise and Bob; their young son, Jimmy; and Jimmy’s estranged paternal grandmother, Winnie. And, of course, St. Nick, together with some of his friends. Buyer beware: these stories are quirky and warped. No gore or sex, but probably adult.

Smashwords book reviews by Catherine A. MacKenzie

  • Sunshine on June 04, 2013

    I enjoyed this story very much. I could really "feel" for Amanda. I began reading it one night shortly before bed and couldn't put it down. I was sorry when it ended! Would recommend to a teenager or an adult. 4 stars
  • The Butterfly on June 04, 2013

    This short story is extremely well written. It held my interest throughout and I had to keep reading. As another reviewer stated, "it conjures up some really disturbing images," but nothing that would really gross anyone out. If you're looking for a horror story, this is it!!
