I am a new member of Smashwords and my first introduction to this wonderful medium for writers and story lovers was "The Cure" by Laura Payeur. This fantastic piece of work had all the elements of a good short story (hook, conflict, background, complication, climax, etc.) It was an absolute joy to read and I will definitely be checking out this author's other stories. Great writing Laura!
