Product Description

First Place -- Unpublished Fiction


At forty, Helen Kendall is divorced, full-figured, and big-haired. She enjoys working at the Pick’n Pay and running the show until sleazy David Hoffman becomes the assistant manager. Helen’s plan to get David fired includes her older sister’s help. Mavis says, “No,” because the last fiasco infuriated her husband and tarnished her reputation at church. Mavis resists until her best friend, Wanda, communicates from the beyond concerned about her godson’s push-animal parties and a drug-related murder.

Unbeknownst to the Kendall sisters, undercover DEA Agent Dewey Blackmon is investigating the drug pipeline running through Forsyth off I-75. Dewey suspects David is laundering drug money through the Pick’n Pay.

These two plots converge when a casket of money and drugs at the Pick’n Pay storeroom makes the body count rise. The loyalty and love between family, friends, and partners in small-town America is threatened when two strangers carrying guns come to Forsyth…


"This camouflage gear is ridiculous and hot. Helen, are you listening?" Mavis glanced at the abandoned tattoo shop and continued to move into the tall grass with her sister. She noticed the shop windows still advertised half-price Wednesdays.

"Well, nobody made you put it on. Look." Helen handed Mavis the binoculars. "I saw movement over there near the trees at the corner of the building. You see anything?"

"We shouldn't be here." Mavis peered through the binoculars. "No. I don't see a dang thing."

Helen took back the glasses. "Let me try out this night vision option."

Mavis groaned. "Why do I let you talk me into these things? The dark parking lot and the abandoned building give me the willies. A homeless man could be living in there."

"If that's the case, may he have a night of peace and quiet and don't blame me. It's your friend, Wanda, feeding us information and urging us to do something before innocent people are hurt."

"Okay, but Dewey told us to stay away."

"So-called, informant, Dewey, puts his pants on like everyone else, one leg at a time."

"What do you mean?

Beams from car headlights flashed in their direction as a vehicle turned from a side road onto Indian Springs Road. Mavis caught the gleam in Helen's eyes. "Later. Jeez, calm down. I have Harnell's .357 Magnum in the car. I could go get it."

Mavis didn't take the bait. She hated guns, and Helen knew it.

"Naw. I didn't think so. It's a full moon with a million stars lighting our way. For once, can you enjoy an adventure?"

A rustling sound like a rodent or rabbit moving through the underbrush made Mavis grab the binoculars from Helen. "There must be a thousand bugs and chiggers in this field, not to mention snakes." As she scanned the field, she saw a human figure crawling in the grass about twenty-five feet away.

Backing up she pulled hard on Helen's arm. "I hope you can fetch and use that gun, little sister, because there's somebody out there." Mavis pointed in the direction of her discovery when a female form stood up.

"Help me," the woman said, before collapsing in the tall grass.
