The Purest Silence
Not a story but a eulogy. The best thing I have ever written—and the hardest. If you read nothing else on this site, read this.
A surgeon struggles to save the life of a little boy in 1951. Engaging, heart-breaking drama.
The Bottom of the Fifth
The story of a little leaguer and the miracles that surround him on opening day of the baseball season. One of my favorites.
A Rare Kind of Faith
An award winning story of a doctor given a lesson in life when he’s called to the ER in the middle of the night to treat a little girl.
Dead Man Breathing
Sam Kelder lies comatose and near death in the ICU. He wants nothing more than to go home. Unfortunately, if those around him have their way, he won’t be going home anytime soon. An award winning story. Written under the alias Edison Penn.
