Editor’s Note: It’s been two and a half years, so I don’t expect you to remember, but back in the before times, I started a writing project. It was a novel that was semi-autobiographical about my first job as a pizza delivery driver. It’s called Paulie’s Pizza and it’s about half-finished. The idea was to […]
CHAPTER 13 – Red, Red Wine
The mug shattered on the concrete floor with a smash. The base snapped off spilling out the half of a beer as the top of the mug went into dozens of tiny little pieces. It was enough to break the silence at the table, but also maybe a sign […]
Paulie’s Pizza is a story that I need to finish. If you missed some of it, catch it from the beginning here.
Chapter 10 – Here I Go Again
It was now week two… or week three of summer. Fuck. Was it week four? The days melted together like the unseasonably hot early June […]

Christopher Allen […]
Chapter 4 – Sicilian Love Song
Night two and I walked into the pizza place to laughter. There was a man standing at the counter. He […]
CHAPTER 3 – Thatâ€™s Amore
It was only about three blocks to my house, but by the time I got home, Wheezy and Lumpy were already there.
My house was a […]
This is continuing a story that I’m going to post every week. You can read Chapter 1 here.
CHAPTER 2 – Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car
In the north suburbs of Kansas City, thereâ€™s not really much to do. Itâ€™s not a walking part of town, so if you want […]
My new year’s resolution in 2016 was to write a story. Maybe it would be a book. Maybe it would just be a long piece of fiction. Maybe it would be 200 words. Didn’t know, but I needed to get it out of my head. During a baseball camp trip with my son that summer, […]
