Quote by Editor, Erin Potter
Wonderful story! Like the others, well written with well chosen words and description that leaps off the page. I felt involved in the stories and wanted more.
Quote from friend, author and blogger, Sandy Coelho
Reader’s will be treated to a vivid compelling story with Toxic Situations. Your writing is engaging; it launches the reader into the story and takes them on a fast-paced thrill ride. I think anyone searching for absorbing, lyrical prose will love this collection.
Closed Doors opens with a novella, Toxic Situations. A break-in at an Atlanta, Georgia laboratory results in the theft of avian flu virus capsules by organized crime figures and an investigation by the CDC.
CDC investigators pursue suspects on a trail from Atlanta to Sydney, Australia. Protagonists for for the novella and short stories are named Craig. Craig Jr. is featured in the novella, Toxic Situations. This story was inspired by a paper written by Dr. JJBrown. Dr. Brown has specialized in viral oncology.
Toxic Situations is followed by two short story prequels: Family Secrets and Thrills at the Esplanade Cinema. These short stories are set in north Texas.
Each story has ties to the Craig Wells family.

Hi Sandy, thanks for your endorsement!

Wow! Congratulations Rich!
Thanks, Susie 🙂 You’re getting close to publication, aren’t you?
Not really. I am still rewriting and if you look at my flash fiction, I spend a lot of time trying to describe with few words. I am making progress. 🙂
Okay, keeping your writing tight is good as long as it doesn’t inhibit your writing 🙂 You’re a good writer, let it happen 🙂
I’ll get it done one of these days! Thanks Rich!
