Dalward J. DeBruzzi’s Twenty Exhilarating New Stories is an engaging and imaginative collection of short stories that sets you free to wonder. By taking your mind on a journey that it will never forget, each story introduces you to the something new that you will love to think about and reread over and over. With this in mind, let’s connect with the author and hear more about his motivations for writing something so unique and original.
“My thinking was to create something that people would love to have by their side, no matter where life took them. I was faced with a decision between a single novel, or a selection of short stories. For me, while I love really getting to know a single cast of characters, there’s something so liberating about being able to jump from one idea to the next in a single afternoon. It’s this type of feeling of wonder and discovery that I wanted to get across to the reader so they can really go on a journey without having to invest hours and hours getting into a plot line.”
This is an interesting way of thinking about literature, but why now?
“This has always been the book I wanted to write for no other reason than it’s the type of book I really love to read. Writing about what you know and what you’re passionate about is something I’ve always tried to stay true to because I believe that’s when I do my most authentic and creative work. By getting to know everything that’s on offer in the book I want to give the reader a chance to identify a couple of favorites they can reread in no time at all and really start to think over in their mind. If I can make this connection between just one story and everyone who buys a copy, I’ll know it was all time well spent.”
And what does he want to do in the next 12 months? Is there anything in the pipeline we should be looking out for?
“I want to continue to create short fiction so that anyone who engages with my work can lose themselves in their imagination for the afternoon. With everything that’s been going on this past year or so, and the over reliance so many of us have on screen time to entertain ourselves, I truly believe there’s a unique role for books in general, and short stories in particular, to play in the way we spend our free time.”
