My new short story ‘Tap’ is about road rage

My latest short story is titled Tap, and it’s one that’s been riding around in my head for a while. If I had to categorize it, I’d say Tap is psychological horror, which means no gore but still dark and disturbing.

Tap cover.jpgTap is about road rage and how a driver named Stephen handles an encounter with a truck driver. His decision is life-changing in more ways than one, and I’m not sure any of them are good.

I personally get ticked off a little more than I should with bad drivers who pull out in front of me or cut me off. I honk the horn and yell at them from the safety of my driver’s seat. Some of the worst things I’ve ever said have been reactions to bad drivers. I won’t repeat those words, but let’s just say it’s good that I’ve never found a lamp with a genie because I’ve wished all sorts of awful things to happen to bad drivers. And that’s not a good way to be.

The older I get, the less patience I have for bad drivers, but I do try to avoid traffic. It’s helped that I drive less during rush hours and keep humming the song “Mr. Blue Sky” until I arrive home. So, thank you, Electric Light Orchestra, for helping me not do what Stephen does in Tap.
