My next story to be released is part of the Storming Love: Flood series by MLR Press. My contribution is the story of Derrick and Steven. Steven is a teacher from New York City that finds himself by chance teaching third grade in Copper Creek Elementary. Copper Creek is a small town in Texas. Steven is adjusting to working in a small town instead of the big city. He has a man, Derrick, the local volunteer fire chief and has settled into a happy life.
One morning he gets to school and an hour later with very little warning a flood threatens the school. Steven gets all of his children evacuated but has to stay behind for one little girl who is hiding somewhere in the school. Does Steven find little Josie? Does Derrick get to Steven and Josie on time? Read Storming Flood: Derrick and Steven out on April 24th.
