Author Event - On Chagrin Boulevard: A Collection of Fluff, Foibles, Fabrications, Flapdoodle, Free Verse and Flash Fiction Book by Melissa Hintz

Using rich language and vivid metaphors, Melissa Hintz’s flash fiction, free verse and poetry are perfect for anyone who loves language, nuance and the beautiful absurdity of modern life. Whether set in smoky bars, hospital waiting rooms or the ancient city of Pompeii, the pieces in her collection all share an unflinching commitment to describe the complexity of life exactly as it is. Hintz, a Shaker Heights resident, left corporate America to become a writer. She loves the complexity inherent in the creation of characters and plot twists for her novels, as well as the challenge of poetry, which requires condensing a story, idea or emotion into just a few words. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
