Betrayal -- Fiction, Short stories, American -- 21st century -- Fiction
This collection of short stories, titled Betrayal, is my thesis project to meet the requirements for a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing/Fiction. In each story, of course, there is betrayal, of sister, daughter, wife, husband or lover. The settings of the stories are various, the Midwest, the Great Lakes, the Allegheny Mountains and Louisiana bayou country. Northeastern Ohio and Lake Erie, especially, have informed description and metaphor in the stories, and their atmosphere is influenced by Gothic literature.
