Description

An artist and graphic designer writes three well-plotted short stories: two that explore the unexpected in turning back time and one about overcoming fear for the sake of another. After a lifetime working as a graphic designer and advertising art director in New York City, Walsh has "retired" and now directs his creative talents into painting and writing.
