Short Story – “The Lightning Jar”

Excited to see my story “The Lightning Jar” in this month’s (September 2020) “Oyster River Pages.” This is the story of a young boy doing everything he can to make both his parents happy in the middle of a tough separation, & focuses on the night his daddy takes him out to hunt lightning bugs. Whether you’ve experienced the magic of catching fireflies on a moonlit night or not, this short story will make you feel like you are right there with him through it all.
