Last Winter’s Leaves - Michael J. Solender (Full of Crow)

What is it that ignites the fear
I don’t want to die
I just don’t want to live like this
there’s a difference

Last Winter’s Leaves is a collection of very short prose and stories, written by Michael J. Solender after his life took an unexpected turn when he became gravely ill and despondent. After several months, with the constant love and support of his wife and some very close and dear friends, the malaise he experienced lifted. Solender says: "The following works are the first pieces I wrote during my recovery. Writing has always been therapeutic for me. This is truer today than at any time during my life."

The collection is available as a printed chapbook in the Full Of Crow Chapbook Series and as free eBook.

Michael J. Solender is a freelance writer and editor of Full Of Crow’s MiCrow section, and On The Wing. He lives in North Carolina with his wife Harriet, and blogs daily at Not From Here, Are You?
