An Honest Lie Vol. 2

An Honest Lie Vol. 2: Delusions of Insignificance was published in Oct. 2010 by Open Heart Publishing and features 16 stories, all built around the title theme.


AHL Vol. 2 features my short story, "The Registry of Lost Socks" (page 53). The genesis of this story came about when my girlfriend was sorting her clean laundry and noticed that (as is wont to happen) one of her socks was missing. In response to this dilemma, she said, "Well, I better put it in the registry of lost socks." I knew as soon as the words were out of her mouth that I needed to build a story around this mythical "registry."


In the story, Peggy Hawthorne loses one of her favorite argyle socks in the wash and discovers that getting it back may be more than a simple matter of searching inside the laundry room. "Registry" beat out 3,000 other stories to appear in this anthology.
