“A contemplative masterpiece.” -Peter Dabbene, Foreword Reviews
“Clever… poignant and… it kind of hurts." -Ashley Victoria Robinson, Major Spoilers

Everyone tells you to follow your dreams, but what do you do if the world doesn't care about your dreams? This Wasn't the Plan tells three stories on this theme. In "Phantom," Ken stands on the threshold of adolescence and a party given by his parents roughly pushes him through into the world of adults. He is challenged to make sense of the lessons about maturity and masculinity offered to him by his mother and the various Air Force officers that surround her. In "Defrost," Lucia has moved to the big city and intends to take the art world by storm, but her friend decides not to join her and her double-major seems to mean nothing. Yet rent must be paid and neighbors dealt with. And then there's that thing in her fridge. "Sink" is the story of a writer whose preoccupation with his lack of success eats away at his marriage. One night, he sees Hermine, a woman who turns out to be a writer also. Interest turns to obsession, until he is confronted and forced to face reality. But fantasies never die; they just find a new outlet.

It's the holiday season and Mrs. Herrick waits expectantly for a phone call from her daughter, a call which never comes. Instead, a seemingly innocuous phone survey challenges Mrs. Herrick's sense of reality. Years later, her granddaughter Stephanie must organize Mrs. Herrick's funeral. Yet in facing her grandmother's life, Stephanie must also face her own. Two related stories about what we choose to believe about ourselves and our loved ones, and what we do when we're shown to be wrong.

Read the beginnings of Kit Kaleidoscope. In "The Masked Ball," Kit stumbles upon an orgiastic party, but the revelers don't disturb her as much as a play that involves a seemingly young boy. In "The Mermaid in the Jar," Kit has a real job working in a graveyard, which brings her into contact with two brothers, one a recently deceased taxidermist and the other an idealistic sculptor. Both stories are black-and-white and completely wordless.
