Free Fiction Monday: Incident at Lonely Rocks

Oscar cleans portable toilets for a living. He loves the job—it takes him to beautiful isolated places, like the Lonely Rocks Wayside on the Oregon Coast. Nothing really grosses him out either—until he discovers the body, slashed to death, with a knife still in the chest. Then he sees a break in the guardrail above the ocean, a second car, a ruined bicycle, and Oscar realizes his troubles have just begun.

    Loved this story – the pride he takes in an ordinary job, the quiet determination to do what he has to – just great!

  2. Hi, Kris! I’ve been reading your business blogs for writers for a while now, then recently started trying out your Monday fiction. Today I wanted to comment because I really loved the character in this story, especially the pride he takes in his work. And the football advice coming back to help him also gave me the horror/suspense-story equivalent of warm fuzzies–I think you really captured the way our body can recall good advice from our past that will save us.

    Thank you for posting these for free!
