He’s done it again!

Dru Richman, winner of the National Public Radio’s Selected Shorts writing contest, is releasing a new collection of short stories that stretch the mind and warm the heart.


He had just finished his coffee when Jessica, the receptionist, called to him, “Ms. Pettine will see you now, Mr. Maulden.”

He thanked her, handed her the coffee cup, and walked into Rufiana Pettine’s office. The first thing he noticed was that her office was nearly three times the size of his old office. I mean, my god, he thought, you could house a family of four in this thing.

The second thing he noticed was that Rufiana Pettine was absolutely stunning. Thirty-something, red hair, long legs, full lips, and a figure to die for — had he not already been dead. She strode around her massive desk and extended her hand. Taking his, she exclaimed, “Sam Maulden, it’s so good to finally meet you. Welcome to Hell!” 

About the Author

A little older and a lot grayer but still pushing on.

During the days of the past thirty years, Dru has been a mild-mannered Macintosh computer maven. His company, Mac Help Desk [], continues to provide on-site Support, Sales, Training, and Service in the Macintosh and iDevice environments.

For more than fifteen years, Dru has been part of an international writing group called Brainz. Each month the group is charged with writing something — prose, poetry, short story, a song, screenplay — anything really, based on a one-word topic. Previous topics have included: mourning, fear, scars, numbers, and flying. Many of the stories in this book are generated from that group.

Dru lives in Richardson, Texas (a suburb of Dallas), with wifey Ava, and their four-legged love child, a standard poodle named Jacob.
