Whether she’s writing about an unscrupulous dentist, a courageous albino woman, a butcher with dark edges, or a grief-stricken couple, Christine Todd’s stories contain unexpected twists, and surprising “aha” moments. Like the bereaved couple in her title story, her characters live through their own “Tornado Days,” their lives changed forever, in an instant.

“This collection of stories is suspenseful and varied. The author shows a well-developed sense of the ridiculous and ironic, and makes use of unusual, unpredictable, and unsettling events. Her characters seem to be outsiders and go beyond the familiar types one often sees in stories.”— National Federation of Press Women (NFPW)
