Two More Stories by Former Palouse Resident, Sue Ellis

I'm always thrilled when I find a story written by a resident on the Palouse, or someone who once lived on the Palouse. Sue Ellis, a former resident recently published two stories: 'January to May' at Fiction 365, and, published at Bob Sanchez's blog, her book review of, 'Midnight Rising', by Tony Horwitz.

Gary Presley, author of 'Seven Wheelchairs'  , articles, and  'The View from Down Here: Collected Essays',   gives high praise for 'January to May'.
"There is a place for realism in fiction. Sue's story is that -- an examination really of two lives, the narrator and her friend. It's the sort of realism that draws the reader into a world, a place not always happy but a place that reminds us that we should be empathetic and open creatures to live happily-enough in the time given us. All I can say is, "Bravo!"
