About Chuck Grossart

Originally from the Denver area, Lieutenant Colonel Chuck Grossart retired from the United States Air Force after serving his country for twenty years as a missile launch officer, space operator, and strike planner. Now settled with his family outside Omaha, Nebraska, he continues to serve as a strategic plans analyst for the Department of the Air Force. Chuck's first novel, The Coming, was a quarter-finalist in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) contest. His second novel, The Gemini Effect (previously titled The Mengele Effect), won the 2014 ABNA for Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror and will be released by Amazon Publishing's 47North imprint in early 2015. Chuck is a member of the Nebraska Writers Guild and the Nebraska Writers Workshop.

Review by: David Blake on June 08, 2013 :
A clever story with a nice twist, and generally well written. A couple of things seemed a little jarring, for instance Devin is suddenly cocking a gun that I didn't even know she had.
Also, why was Devin seemingly unconcerned about a third party discovering what was in the attic? The narrative suggests she doesn't know who the intruder was until she went up there and had a look.
These are relatively minor quibbles, though. Overall it was a very good read for such a short piece.

Thanks for turning me on to flash fiction. I've now read all of your stories (at least those on Smashwords as of May 2013) and enjoyed them all! Who knew you could travel so far in the mind with so few words.

Another outstanding short by Chuck... he always sets up what appears to be an open-and-shut situation, and inserts a masterful twist at the end...

I've become accustomed to the twists, and look forward to each of them...
