Renee Marie Philomena Therese Kray’s collection of short stories, “Think Again” Kray’s first collection of short stories were wonderfully unique, mysterious, and playful. She mixed realism, magic, and mystery flawlessly to create a “Tim Burton” like collection of stories. Every story had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happened next.
“First Love” is a flash fiction piece tells the story of a woman’s love for the young man she meets at the coffee shop. However, the love she feels for this man is different from the average love story, and Kray uses this twist to amp up the emotion in the piece.
“The Ghost in the Walls” is the tale of a haunted house and the past events that lead to its ghostly fame. It’s easy to get absorbed in the tale, just as young James does. Kray blends the sense of lightheartedness with eerie suspense in this fantastic urban legend.
“Love is Blind” twists what you would expect completely on its head. A tale of infatuation and love that is not at all what it seems. Kray plays with your mind in this piece, and just when you think you have it figured out, she gives another twist!
