Free Fiction Monday: ProtectVision

2940148665687_p0_v1_s260x420Sixteen-year-old Sharyn just wants to have fun. But her overprotective father wants to control her life. He uses the latest technology, ProtectVision, to make sure she follows his rules. But technology comes with a price—one she, her father, and even innocent bystanders might have to pay. Chosen as one of the top ten stories of 2004 by Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, “ProtectVision” demonstrates the lengths parents go to protect their children—and the sometimes devastating consequences of succeeding.

    I always look forward to Mondays – your stories are just fantastic. I end up wide-eyed, nose close to the screen, in a different world while I’m reading them. Thank you for giving them away each week! Sara

    Excellent: an ending that’s unexpected but inevitable. Sharyn’s conception, I mean. I also liked the extrapolation of technology, logical but intimate rather than world-busting. All in service of characters and conflict we care about. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go out to the car and get my inhaler…
