“My Short and Long-Stemmed Stories” is Rose Klix’s collection of her short stories.
Whether six words or several pages long, each of her stories capture a moment in time. Her characters experience everyday challenges and resolutions. Some stories are inspired by her own life experiences. “Whether through the loss of a loved one, bowling with Dad, being irritated by a helpful person while playing a relaxing game of solitaire, or visiting a biker bar, I created characters and situations from my own participation and observations. The shortest story was most challenging. Papa Hemingway reputedly said a story could be told in only six words.”
