"Cox creates an impressive array of characters and voices...and he pulls them off elegantly." -- Kirkus Reviews
These compelling short stories huddle around the twitching candle flame of real life, making this book one of those classic good reads. The simple, unpretentious storytelling turns an honest eye toward the grit and grace of ordinary people making decisions in the context of their relationships, good and bad and in between. The short stories touch on love gone sideways, love rediscovered, and love everlasting.

About the indie short story author.
Dan T. Cox was born in 1953 in Corvallis, Oregon. He grew up in Oregon’s North Santiam Canyon, earned a journalism degree from the University of Oregon, became part of Portland’s advertising creative community, and now lives in Ridgefield, Washington. His short stories have appeared in literary journals such as Weber Studies and Skyline. A Bigger Piece of Blue: Stories is his debut book.
“It’s daunting to offer up a debut book of short stories to the reading public,” said Cox. “But I believe it can be equally daunting for book lovers to face their own secret feelings that get triggered to life by something or someone portrayed in good stories. After all, we all get to face the music sooner or later when it comes to our relationships. We all make decisions in the context of those relationships. And we all face but one ultimate question: did I decide wisely? That’s what the book explores.”
