Sharon Cairns Mann is delighted to announce the release of her collection of short stories, Tesserae: a Mosaic of Story, November 4, 2015. This collection includes award-winning work that has previously appeared in juried anthologies, as well as new short-fiction. Most of Mann’s work is set in southern Colorado or the southwest, and the book is categorized as “Literary Collections | Southwest | Colorado.” Themes of isolation, a longing for home, and the need to belong are accentuated by the lonely, wind-swept high-desert setting. From the misguided romantic hopes of a cowboy, to the poignant tale of a misfit orphan coming to terms with her losses and the unwelcome-but-longed-for grace that settles over her life, this book is filled with quirky, flawed, and authentic characters.
“Mann’s collection wryly renders American life as wonder, will, and dogged whimsy. Strong and original. Highly recommended.” – Patricia Raybon, award-winning best-selling author.
“What I love about Mann’s writing is the way that she surprises me. Not in an “Oh-she’s- good” way. Because she is very good. But in a ‘Wow-I-didn’t-see-that-coming’ way.” – Michael Madigan, Author and Past President, Colorado Author’s League.
