Abstract (Summary)

One Foot In is a collection of short fiction written over the course of my two years in the M.F.A. program at California State University, Long Beach. There are eight short stories in this collection that are loosely connected by location and occasionally recurring characters. Three of the stories in this collection feature the character, Alison Carter, an adolescent girl growing up in a beachside community. The other five stories follow characters from similar coastal areas of Southern California. Through these stories I intend to present the complex reality of life on the California coast amidst all of the ideals and preconceptions of the area.
