I actually don't write many love stories when it comes to my short stories. Or at least the ones that have been published aren't usually love stories, which maybe implies that romance is not my strength. Whether that is true or not, I have had two short pieces published which could definitely have a love theme about them. The first was one of my earliest publications, and I feel like I've grown a lot since then, but I still have a soft spot for the story and the narrator. It was picked up by Long Story Short in 2007, but the link to my story in their archives seems to be broken, so I put it up for your reading pleasure over at Fictionaut. So if you're in the mood for a little Dairy Queen Lust, hop on over and check it out.
My other love story that has been published, even though it has love story in the title, is less a love story and more about someone getting themselves to a place where they can have a positive, healthy relationship, but I wrote it in the first year of my relationship with my sweetie, and I wrote it sitting across from him in a coffee shop. He's my Valentine today and every day, and I am going to suggest you go read Coffee Shops: A Love Story over at Toasted Cheese before I get too schmoopy and scare you off.
Happy Valentine's Day!
