This originally was to be a series of short stories that revolved around a place called “Staley’s Store”. Every story was to be independent, linked only by the fact that each story had at least one scene at Staley’s Store. Somewhere along the way, a plot developed. You may read the stories in this series in any order; however, your reading might flow better if you read them in menu sequence.
A few stories are almost like a “GIF” photo. Just a few moments to paint a scene. There might not even be a dramatic moment or climax. It is a scene which is connected to past and future scenes/stories. Eventually you may see why I included that story. But if you never do, I hope you can enjoy the picture it paints.
In order to keep my stories straight, I have drawn some maps of The Village of Beaver Ridge. If you want to access these maps they are placed in online/cloud storage. Click on the map link. Then click on “Open“. LINK TO Map of The Village of Beaver Ridge
FYI: There’s a color code in the upper left corner of the Main Map. I really drew the map to keep me straight. I make it available in case you prefer maps.
13 Sept 2020 Update: “A Frog Finds His Pond” was just published. After re-reading some of the earlier stories, I need to update the maps. I will be working on the next story in this series.
