Author Neil Tarpey signs and reads from his new book of flash fiction, Flashes of Lightning. He'll be joined by Laura Zerzan Jones, who provided illustrations for the book. Very big subjects, very few words. Flashes of Lightning comprises fifty-two fiction stories (each one 101 words or less) that touch the reader's funny bone, heart, mystery-solving mind and sometimes, dark side. Neil Tarpey hails from New York City, and lives with his wife and their two dogs along Northern California's redwood coast.
