"A Call Away" is built upon one of my free stories, "Me--Molly," which was my entry in NPR’s Round 10 of their occasional feature, “Three Minute Fiction.” There, the 600-word story had to be written "as a voice-mail message.” It was my first tale with an LGBTQIA theme--in this case, L--and I wanted to explore it in a wider, deeper, more emotional way. Thus, Molly's two-page struggle became 18.

"Timeout" was my contribution to Round 11 of National Public Radio’s “Three Minute Fiction,” concluded June 9, 2013. Rules: 600 words or fewer; not “inappropriate;” and in which a character finds something he or she has no intention of returning. I wanted to cast the state of our growing economic inequality in more intimate terms.

Short stories by David Satterlee. “[His writing is] humorous, bold, and adventurous all at once … channeled through a facility for language and the music of words.” Each story is short and sweet – or sometimes bittersweet – or just thought-provoking. There is often a surprise concluding twist that will "get you in the end." Very human stories explore the extremes of life, loss, and love.

This remarkable collection of fourteen short stories introduces a powerful new voice in literary fiction. In each of these compelling narratives, Canadian author Linda Joyce Ott creates a deceptively smooth surface where ogres and monsters lurk below.
