All these fiction stories are exactly that: Fiction. Characters, events, names of persons
and places, are either complete fiction or used in a fictitious manner. Martins Landing is a
faithful rendition of typical East Texas Piney Woods crossroads communities of the
fabulous 1950’s. Nacogdoches is alive and well, despite occasional reports to the contrary.
One of the buttons above will take you to Shine’s current on-line short story, which he is providing free
to give readers a sample of his writing. These free stories will be changed periodically. Free to read, but
we retain all copyrights.
This Site is now going into the second year of operation. We are especially
proud to provide free reading of selected short stories and excerpts of
released publications. Shine’s works are now available world-wide from
Amazon and other fine vendors, as Ebooks, with some also in print form.
