Scott Gardner

Mom's Dementia

The lights are off, the curtains drawn no way to tell the dusk from dawn. Her mind is full of memories that shines a light no one can see. I love you, Mom.

Scott Gardner’s short story “Grammy Mooney and the Cisco Kid” was nominated for a Sonder Press Best Small Fiction Award by Sleet Magazine. His story “The Journals of Henry Elder” was published in the February, 2022 issue of The Scarlet Leaf Review. He and his characters wrote a collection of short stories and are collaborating on more tales set in or near Titusville, Pennsylvania. They argue constantly which has made this alliance so much fun.
