Product Description:


Official recipient of the 2016 Ray Bradbury Short Story Award



"I laughed, I cried, I woke up and went to sleep with these characters. Marcos and Howe are two young men you will not easily forget! This heartwarming short story is a gem!" - Goodreads User








Was it murder? Or was it a misfire? Sometimes the truth can be found in the perspective. 





On May 12, 2012, Lenny Snider, an unarmed black man, was shot and killed by a two-year Los Angeles Police Officer, Yolanda Mendez. What happened next, no one could predict. Not even their lovers.

Narrated by the fiancé and boyfriend of Lenny and Yolanda, Misfire is an interconnected fictional drama and chillingly realistic look at a routine L.A. traffic stop gone wrong and the two strangers left to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of a devastating tragedy. A gritty, yet endearing testament to humanity, Misfire is a reminder that even in a city of four million people, we are all still more connected than we think.
