⚡ FLASH FICTION ⚡

Welcome to my new medium—Flash Fiction. In this realm of storytelling, each word is a brushstroke on a canvas, and the entire painting is smaller than you'd expect yet as vast as the imagination allows. Flash Fiction is the art of brevity, where narratives are distilled to their essence, often in less than 1,000 words.

​As a novelist known for painting pictures with words, I'm excited to take you on new journeys that are both concise and expansive. The challenge of Flash Fiction is to encapsulate a complete story—beginning, middle, and end—within a tight word limit. This form demands precision and a mastery of language, as every single word must be carefully chosen for its impact and meaning. It's a literary endeavor that tests the boundaries of expression and the power of suggestion.

The Righteous One is the story of Moshe the cobbler, a gentle, sixty-year-old tzaddik—a righteous and saintly Jew—who is called upon to rekindle his divine connection to the Almighty in order to destroy the notorious New York gangster and rasha Solomon Blass, a man who uses his power of foreseeing events via his vivid dreams to advance his own financial interests. 

 

While Solomon and his son, Myron, seek to control much of Manhattan—its biggest businesses, its police department, and its city government—they find themselves embroiled in conflict with numerous powerful people from both their waking life and the dream world, where Moshe has begun training with the descendants of an ancient mystical spirit for his inevitable confrontation with Solomon.

As the final battle approaches, the divide between good and evil becomes ever clearer and each character faces the consequences of his past, present, and future actions. Will Solomon’s wily tenacity prevail, or will Moshe be strong enough to destroy the rasha’s wicked soul?

Bhark and his family are ambushed by his rival Shadrach, who insists that he, not Bhark, is the clan’s rightful heir. A subsequent encounter with the soul hunter Creyak, who promises to return to Bhark all that was lost, sends our hero on a perilous journey into the four demonic realms of Gehenna. Along the way, he receives wisdom from Miko the Seer and guidance from his clairvoyant daughter, Amica, both of whom have the power to pierce the veil that separates the upper and lower spiritual realms, while Bhark fights for the salvation—and ultimate redemption—of his eternal soul.
