"First of all, let's make one thing clear: I'm just the messenger, so there's no point getting all pissy with me..." So begins Stories From the Porch, a collection of short stories linked by their setting: the small town of Baeburg, Ontario. Oh, it's small all right: Baeburg is home to three churches, two coffee shops, and only one guiding principle: say what you really think, and let the cow chips fall where they may. Voices ring out in these stories. A grandmother remembers sweet revenge at an epic pie-baking contest; a boy takes us on a rollicking springtime bike ride. Farmers wax philosophic, a bookseller grumbles about love and ghosts, and the whole town damn nearly mounts a coup d'état on the mayor when --Oh, they'll tell you the stories themselves. Have a seat on the porch, grab a butter tart, and enjoy. Because life can be pretty funny sometimes ... just ask the funeral director.
Teresa Brown is the author of several award-winning short stories, and has numerous fiction and nonfiction publishing credits in both national and local periodicals. Her plays have been produced on stage and radio. Teresa lives in Baden, Ontario, a town that bears only a passing resemblance to Baeburg.
