Short Stories by Penny Sidoli

My latest book is is a collection of short stories, now available on Amazon.com

The Intersection of Daydream and Driving Slow

Kindle ebook or Paperback

“Penny Sidoli has brought out her best with this collection of wildly original tales packed with descriptions of the broad landscape of the American West and lively characters who jump off the page into your heart.”  

“Light and wise.”  

“Opens the imagination.”  

The Intersection of Daydream and Driving Slow is a collection of short stories with the setting of the contemporary American West. In each story the reader will discover a wider West full of possibility and imaginative adventure, a mix of scruffy, rough, tense, and smooth like chopped nuts on ice cream.  Each story spills its love, created with strong, compelling writing. Penny Sidoli is a creative force gentle  as the sunset, remarkable as a gallop. It’s all about the southwest desert, the northwest forest, all about solitude, music, love, biologists, geologists, criminals, magic, birds, boats, red dresses, old trucks and ranches.

Also available at bookstores and on Amazon, a book for kids who like adventure and history
