Stories I Heard When I Went Home

Hello all, I finally pushed publish on my book Stories I Heard When I Went Home for My Grandmother's Funeral. I was weirdly hesitant. There are some stories (many) stories based on an Iowa childhood, some based on a Montana adulthood, a California.... My hesitancy is all about family members reading my stories and expressing concerns around privacy. There is also some embarrassing sexuality in there. So I have to remember that all stories are fictional when you write them down. No, I really get that. The past is in the past. This is one person's point of view. Liberties were taken in the making of these stories, but it really does become fiction once you write it down.
