Out of the Blue

“Out of the Blue” has been selected as the winner of the 2015 Manhattanville Writing Alumni Contest.

An excruciating blow from behind forces the air out of her lungs and sends her purse and the Pan Am bag flying. A fleeting image flashes behind her eyes, of the World Trade Center as it is rammed by a 737. She feels on fire too. She realizes that her father’s collection is being scattered across the asphalt.

She is pinned between her Prius and the monster that has hit her from behind.
