Ebooks of Short Stories For Your Enjoyment!
Dusty Chief Writer Judy Daly Chief Editor Andy Lintner Chief Designer
I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.
Working with Dusty has been a real experience, I too am retired, but I'm not telling my age! I worked 30 years for a NASA contractor in Houston. One of my responsibilities was to edit technical documents written by aerospace engineers. Editing these short stories is a far cry from editing technical documents, but so much more fun. Hope you enjoy reading Dusty's stories as much as I enjoyed editing them! Happy reading! Judy Daly-Editor

A Chinese proverb says: 'A picture is worth a thousand words';
To grasp that meaning is the goal of every book cover I create, to tell the essence of a story of a "thousand words" through one instant, frozen in time- a picture.
Inspired by this insight are those book covers of the great stories of my dear friend and author Dusty, for whom it has been my pleasure designing those cover illustrations.
