Piper’s Someday

It seemed as though life couldn’t get any worse for feisty, young Piper Leigh Cliff and her three-legged dog, Someday.

After losing her parents and brother in a drunk driving accident, she and her dog are sent to live in what she calls the “grossest looking apartment complex” in Goochland County, Virginia. She’s forced to deal with even more trauma as she’s swept up in a maelstrom that includes her neglectful, verbally abusive grandfather and his cross-eyed lackey friend, Clover – two old rednecks in love with booze, Nascar, and jaunts to the local bar.

Piper’s luck begins to change, however, when two women, a postal worker and a graduate student, move in just three doors down. Continue reading

Vera’s Still Point

Vera Curran is in love with her own repression. She’s a forty-year-old Republican gay librarian from a rural county in Virginia who gladly sustains her life by doing the same insipid routine day in and day out. She wakes up, treks through her “shelving in the 900’s” days, and puts milk bones out for the dog each night before curling up to read a book and watch the world through her window.

Vera hasn’t had sex in years…and has forgotten exactly why. Then out of nowhere there is a new member of the faculty – Frankie Bourdon – an ex-Navy pilot who left the military to teach high school and to try and change the public school’s curriculum by adding homosexual sex education. Continue reading
