“Faces Unknown” – My September News and Views Short Story

Lois loves company, and it’s a good thing, because she’s always got a room full of visitors!  But when Angelica Black enters the party, Lois is disturbed that she can’t put her finger on how she knows the woman, especially because Angelica doesn’t seem to recognize anyone surrounding her.  But just who is this Angelica Black, why has she come to visit Lois, and what is Angelica’s relationship to the only child in the room – a pouting, little girl?   

You can discover the answers to these questions by reading “Faces Unknown,” my short story found in both the Peoria and Bloomington editions of the free periodical, News and Views for the Young at Heart.
