For the past ten years local author Judi Blaze has been compiling a collection of short stories that will be released the end of September. The collection includes 17 stories in a book entitled NORMAL PEOPLE ARE THOSE WE DON’T KNOW WELL published by Black Rose Press. The stories chronicle the lives of quirky, often unhinged characters which show us that despite how peculiar we think others may be—they really are not so different; some involve love and loss, while others are humorous, poignant and endearing.
