I'm a verse novel and short fiction author, screenwriter (TV, film and the web), actress and poet from Levittown, Pennsylvania. After several years of acting -- and performing in dozens of TV shows, films and commercials -- I returned to my writing roots. I studied screenwriting then embraced my loves of fiction and poetry.
I wrote "Depth of Focus: A Novel" and "Depth of Focus: The Stanzas." Verse novels, both books tell the same story of a young woman's quest for independence, love, career success and the healing of her broken family. But, one version of the book ("The Stanzas") is broken into the poetry/rhythm I heard when I originally wrote it. Currently living in Los Angeles, I'm writing my 2nd and 3rd verse novels -- "Siblings & Other Torture Devices" (comedy) and "Windmills" (drama/suspense). For each, I plan to release both versions.
Parts of my resume are posted on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) at www.imdb.me/kenya. To see it in its entirety -- along with samples of my work -- visit my website, www.kenyadwilliamson.com. I post excerpts, short stories, news, etc. Until I have enough short fiction to complete my anthology, I'll also be posting some efforts on my Scribd and Smashwords profiles.

An impressive introduction to the work of Kenya Williamson, this flash fiction showcases a daydream. We've all been there: working hard for the money, but mentally we're somewhere else. Along comes that smugly annoying someone who knows we have a thing for them, and despite our better judgement, we can't even help drifting away mentally for a moment. That's what happened to the supermarket checker in this brief tale, well told.
