VeldaAt the Vietnam Monument

She pretended not to hear for fear of what she would say, raised her gaze, and saw herself and Glen reflected beyond the names like beings sucked into its ebony essence. Their faces stared back from the jet mirror, expressions bewildered and tightened in mourning. She had a wispy vision, a fearful thought that each visitor was somehow captured in the reverse image and stored away within the pure stone slashed from some faraway mountain. It would forever hold the names of the dead and their tortured souls as well as a piece of all who came to lament their passing. The fury of the place burned like a fire, names of the slain marched forever across the black headstone against which lay flowers, pictures, letters, and medals, all spotted by salty tears. It was as quiet as if the world had ended.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born in Arkansas, Velda likes to place her books there, though many are set in other states. Her six nonfiction books are about Arkansas. She was a finalist in the Willa Literary Awards for Creative nonfiction, and won the Crème de la Crème at OWFI for one of her fiction novels. In 2011 she was presented with the Distinguished Citizen Award by the Washington County Historical Society for her contribution to the preservation of history. Branded as Sexy, Dark and Gritty, her novels are about gutsy women and heroes who are tough enough to deserve them in several genres including mainstream women’s fiction, mysteries, historical romances, paranormal and horror.
