I've written short stories all of my life. Then somewhere around 2005, an editor told me I needed to grow up. I needed to write novels, like big people. And I did. In fact, i wrote three novels and a novelette over the next four years. It was great fun. But you know what? I missed the shorter literary form, those fast romps instead of long romances. Maybe I have problems with commitment, I don't know. But the shorts in "Box of Lies" were just a blast to write.
Amazon reviewer Linda Bulger puts it this way: "LaFlamme is like a graffiti artist sliding around a corner in the dark with his collar turned up – a few bold strokes and he’s moved on. But the territory of your mind has been tagged with his distinctive images.”
