I wrote “Grimmy’s Girl” years ago, and it has been a favorite among my readers ever since. It was published in a now defunct literary magazine back in 2009, and won an Honorable Mention nod in a national writing competition. The essay is a quick read, and goes back to my journalism training of “saying a lot with a little.”
It is now available on Amazon for your reading pleasure.
A snapshot of a budding romance during my nineteenth summer, it was unexpected and raw – a friendship set on fire. But like things that catch fire, they burn out eventually. We made it a good year before ashes set in.
Grimmy and I have kept in touch through the years, and we are now happily married to other people. We still remember our time together with fondness, and share a chuckle now and then about that summer.
What began as friendship has settled in friendship.
Bella Vida, loves
