Small-town life is funnier and crazier than you imagined! These West Texas tales reveal the closely connected lives of rural eccentrics. “A lush tangle of small-town life branches out in this engrossing collection of short stories.” –Kirkus Reviews. “The ability to depict such a wide cross section of humanity, including details of each character’s breadth of knowledge and experience, takes a talented, insightful author, and Duane Simolke is such a writer.” –E. Conley, Betty’s Books.

Something old & something new in 2017

Happy New Year!

I'm currently writing a new short story, not based on any of my previous works. It's a gay romantic comedy set in Texas.

I'm also working on a revised version of The Return of Innocence: A Fantasy Adventure.

Please be good to yourself and others throughout the year!
