Each story in the series focuses on a different character and explores their struggle to "cross the divide" and connect with the people in their lives.<br /> <br /> Claim your copy of the darkly humorous "Riding Shotgun", Book 2 in the Crossing The Divide series: (just copy and paste the link into your browser)<br /> jbreynolds.net/free-story/<br /> <br /> In between the publication of his first story as a university student and a return to serious writing in 2016, he has worked as a graphic designer, landscaper, ski and snowboard technician, film critic, librarian, apple picker, and baker of muffins and teacakes.<br /> <br /> Nowadays, when not writing, he’s a husband, father, and high school teacher (not necessarily in that order).
