Mothers and Other Creatures: a bioStories Anthology


I am pleased to tell you that one of my posts on this blog from several years ago, The Photo Finish, has been included in a new collection of diverse stories about the complex relationships we all have with our mothers.

Mothers and Other Creatures: a bioStories Anthology

I just got my copies today and encourage you to treat yourself to a good book – click the bioStories link on my Blogroll to order or available on Amazon, too, in both e-book and paperback formats.

March was the birthday month for my two mothers, Selma and Willie, and this story is my gift to honor their memories.

About Sheila Morris

Sheila Morris is an essayist with humorist tendencies who periodically indulges her desires to write outside her genre by trying to write fiction and poetry. In December, 2017, the University of South Carolina Press is publishing her collection of first-person accounts of the people primarily responsible for the development of LGBT organizations in South Carolina. Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement: Committed to Home will resonate with everyone interested in LGBT history in the South during the tumultuous times from the AIDS pandemic to marriage equality. She has published four nonfiction books including two memoirs, an essay compilation and a group of her favorite blogs from I'll Call It Like I See It. Her first book, Deep in the Heart: A Memoir of Love and Longing received a Golden Crown Literary Society Award in 2008. Her writings have been included in various anthologies - most recently the 2017 Saints and Sinners Literary Magazine. She is a displaced Texan living in South Carolina with her wife Teresa Williams and their dogs Spike and Charly. Her Texas roots are never too far from her thoughts.

    • Well, well Lisa M. – I have to say I really appreciate your saying that! You lived through The Photo Finish with me and I will never forget all you did for me during that time in my life – and neither will Red and Spike. I couldn’t have dreamed up a neighbor and friend any better if I’ve tried. You, my friend, are a treasure.
