Contrary to popular belief, 75% of what I write is made up. It's interesting that people seem to get hung up on the 25% that isn't, and then extrapolate that to include everything I've ever written.
"Grimm" is probably closer to 50/50.
"Grimm" is the only short story I have that is connected in any way, shape, or form to my book, "I Pray Hardest When I'm Being Shot At." But "Grimm" is fiction, spawned from real life, while "Pray" is entirely true.

Back in 2006, I self-published a collection of short stories. You should already have the first story from that collection, since I gave it away for free a few weeks ago. "Grimm" is the third of three. I'm not entirely if/when I'll post the middle story, as it's very, very weird.
Anyway, "Grimm" has its flaws, but it's still a very important story for me, and I think I do the subject matter justice here and there.
I hope you enjoy it.
