Fault Lines is a collection of short stories produced during my time in the two-year M.F.A. program in Creative Writing at CSULB. Each of these stories features characters in varying degrees of unhappiness who find themselves feeling stuck in their lives. All take place in Southern California, and some are connected by recurring characters. The main characters within this collection latch on to ideals they believe will help them to achieve their goals. The strategies they employ to break free from the static situations that bind them ultimately prove faulted and, at times, detrimental to themselves and others. Clothing also plays an important role within these pages. These stories examine how we often endow clothing with special meaning so that it becomes symbolic of our desires and memories. Most importantly, Fault Lines represents the growth of my voice as a writer.
