Here’s a link to a story published in Short Beasts, a cool online magazine for flash fiction. I hope you enjoy this blast from my past.


I grew up as a crooked girl who dealt with a mild case of cerebral palsy. In a small Cajun town during the 1960s, I relied on my little sisters' support and energy to give me confidence and our grandma's movie theater to help me escape when life's "pas bon" moments overwhelmed me.

    1. Gayley, your support means more to me than you’ll ever know. You the best sister! Love, love, love you.


  1. Ginger, thanks for sharing this story. Inspiration for fiction grows from the fertile soil of being misunderstood. Your life is a garden of wildflowers reimagined through your history with iconic cinema.
